Cool Hydraulics in India?

I was watching a Snoop Dogg video the other day and i was wondering whether hydraulics system are available in India (have any of you seen them)
For those of you who are unfamiliar, it is basically a specialised set of suspensions, rigged up to an onboard computer & music system, so that the car 'dances' to the tunes in played in the car!!!

Heres a link you can check out: http://auto.howstuffworks.com/question294.htm

p.s. id like to see some of this stuff in india, maybe on a modified contessa/ car with soft suspension; what do you think?? main problem is india's crappy roads......

Doubt you'll get the kit in India. You will have to import it from abroad. some come with playstation style controllers for the dancing effect (hopping around). They even have tournements in the US to see who can jump their car the most and do dances.

We don't need that. Our roads make our cars behave in exactly the same way, whether we like it or not!

there are guys who can import the stuff for you but finding the right parts and a person to fit it here for you might be difficult.

Im planning an airbag suspension drop kit (just to lower it while its parked) for my next car. As far as the dancing hydraulics are concerned i think its a stupid idea! hehe.

Kinda OT, but dude Arush, mind explaining more about this airbag suspension drop kit? I have a vague idea of its working in my head, but does it serve any real purpose or is it a show-off feel-cool kinda thing, like the devanand (he was called jumping jack or something if im not wrong) style hydraulics nakedflame was talking about! :P

Godspeed.

Alok.

Well that depends on where you park it, if it's on the porch of a 5-star hotel everyone's gonna see your ride. And anyways the other attraction of this kit is the sight when it goes down when you switch off the car and when it raises the body up when you start her up. But it's strictly an individual preference like most visual mods.

Hey iraghava, thanks for the pics bro, looked just like I imagined it would .

Mabe one place this hydraulic suspension would actually be of some use is when some jack on the road eggs you on for a quicky. Now just imagine, you got a real kickass car, ported & polished, remapped, tc'ed, hot body paint with racing strips, carbon fibered in all the right places including the gt wing, you know, the works... Now all you need to do to show him your car gonna smoke him is lower it to make it more aerodynamic... or atleast look more aerodynamic!!!

Godspeed.

Alok.

Good idea Alok but don't even think about moving with your car lowered like that otherwise you can kiss your performance Free-Flow exhaust goodbye among other various bits falling off with it

Really??? All the 5-stars I know park your car on the porch if you have a car good enough that is and as far as I know most people enter the hotel via the porch only so everyone who comes in or goes out does so via the porch and so sees your car.
