also u cud change the location of the extra lamps.as it is in the grill blocking the air .instead u cud fit below ur side indicators such that its in between the 2 headlamps on eash side.
also why dont u change the position of ur tacho.it looks cheap.
and why dont u get some nice side skirts in line with the front bumper additions and also similar attachments to the rear bumper.somehow without the side skirts ur car looks incomplete to me.

Amazing! The side view of the car is breathtaking. The front's come out pretty nice too.
Did I hear 180km/h somewhere? God Almighty! Dude, what have you done about the brakes?
BTW, looks like the number Conti lovers here is on the rise. Isn't it, Ported Head?

I've seen the car getting ready for months. The final result is more than satisfactory. Paint job is OK, not great. He should have consulted me on that before rushing

Observation: Car is moving and how!!! Awesome presence on the road. No comments on spoiler cause I don't care much for that.

Suggestion: Do nothing more to the car. Just drive for few thousand km and let carbon set inside the exhaust...On the piston head. Adjust tappet and tighten engine mounts..head bolts etc. Expect that deep growling note..
Change wheels to 14 inches. Current steel disk with huge tyres are taking away huge amount of power. Put a nice set of alloy instead of spending money under the bonnet. According to me the engine is wasting huge power by pulling more than 50 kgs of unsprung mass. 50 kg is excluding damper, brake units, suspension arms etc.
Braking is one area of serious concern. If you really want to spend some more money, I suggest try to go for rear wheel with disk brakes and bigger size booster. Till then drive sensibly..Bangalore roads are not like what it used to be.

And Psycho, don't be so lazy. Open a new thread to give further report on your car. You've introduced yourself well enough in this introduction thread.

Correction: I was not in Psycho's car when he doing that crazy speed.
