name's Ritwik..
live in cal.. bit of a speed freak..
just love the feel of tyres screeching when i take a real fast turn..
the best high is when i fish tail on fast turns and control it using opposite lock.. what a feeling !

love karting..

but must confess that i love bikes a lil more than cars..
tho i have been a LOT faster in a car.. 230kmph in a Ferrari 348 !

anyway..good to be here !

Ferrari 348! Now thats something...being behind the wheel of a Prancing Horse is surely on top of the wishlist of every car guy I know of.

Tell us more...

Hey Ritwik

Youre a real lucly dude man ? How was the experience? I second GTO on the point he made. To get behind a Prancing Horse steering wheel is to die for

sorry for not replying earlier..
to begin with.. no.. i wasnt driving
it belongs to a close friend of my dad's..

i had just come back from an early morning soth indian breakfast and he had just taken it out.. so i said hi and he opened the door for me.. ( he only takes it out early in the morning or real late at night )

its REALLY low of the ground...the inside is plain..
the steering wheels's pretty small.. it fits into the curve of ure hand perfectly tho

the sound of a Ferrai on high revs is orgasmic !!!
( i cant put it into words )
the acceleration is mind blowing.. we were on 2nd gear and he literally floors it and i slammed into the back rest !

we then got into open road.. and..
not much else to tell.. ( only the ride of my life feeling ! )
and we touched 230 !
i didnt stop smiling the entire ride !

Man, getting a ride in a Ferrari is a fantasy but getting a ride in a Ferrari on early morning Indian roads is really something else.

Well-written Hatari

still dont think i did justice to it !
..wud run out of verbs describing it !

cal roads are improving.. but the road we did 230 on ( Red road ) has always been among cal's best roads..

( the road doesnt need to be that long in a Ferrari ! )

as of september 03.. we have a 2.4 km flyover.. dead straight.. brilliant road to do all the high speeds u can..
