About witnessing the drag *this was about 2.oo in the night the cars were afully kitted camary and a lumina ss man they were awsome its very rarely u get to see some thing like this , But in Baharain there are organised drag meets on the week ends but those guys are very cool and open and most of the baharanis speak hindi but what cars carreras are like esteems out there every young guy u see is in a sports car or a modified car and there are massive shops dealing in performance parts cool man realy cool

lol i know but few days back only there was drag season going on at bandra kurla complex it went for 4 days but then 5th day the cops just ruined it badly. They should allow to race legaly at a place where the road is totally untilised and there are places in mumbai.

Karanraj Shah(KS Motorsports) has a well update on drags than any other. As the forum does not allows to post about the illegal drags so its good if everybody is in touch through messenger or e-mail ids. And yeah mumbai has got a lot of modded cars now and the action did kicked off at bandra kulra complex after the khargar drags where the accident of accent viva just ruined up and so the pandus . Cops shud bloody bribe bucks and buzz off from there but it just dosnt works infact last to last drag at khargar 3 or 4 cars got caught and they had to pay around 2k to cops and it was so disgusting when the cops where throwing stones on the car. Forget about this, 2 cars were having race at bandra reclamation and they were caught and their car got seized.

Anyways am just waiting for next drag dont care if cops comes or no

the very same attitude which causes chaos and cancellation for organized events also..

and when it comes to a proper drag event entry, where does all this cockiness go?? or is the pain of couple of hundred bucks too heavy that they race against each other creating havoc and accidents around the track..

saw a KL registered camry with full load of passengers dragging with some 4 accents outside the recent bangalore event.. if u ask me bro u need spanking..

have the ***** then put money for an entry and do a run..

when will we ever learn!

the drag-race at the BKC had a fool in a RS with 17 inchers doing a hand brake because of which it skidded into the gutter ..

it was organised by 2 of our very own bhpians ...and there was another one scheduled for the last thursday at kharghar ...dunno about it
