And also notice one common thread - all pics of the cars seem to be taken in an IOC outlet.

I was actually having a good laugh after seeing the maruti Van. the first is something off the internet, and then nothing that he has done.

Just heard from a friend who says they called him saying they wanted an autometer for their car. And it was a genuine buyers question. Guess what our man replies? Autometer? Thats an unbranded company. I will give you Race Tech instead. I must appreciate the guts of this guy. To be able to talk to customers like this thinking they are ignorant.

I wouldn't advertise "underground" racing! god! is this guy a joke or what? and this is really ridiculous. People trying to relive FnF. Extremely dangerous. bikers are on without any guards, no tires to protect. people standing right next to the cars...
Why do people try and emulate pointless things?

He hasnt even bothered to block out the number plates of the cars in those photos. If only Delhi Police were a bit tech savvy, they could make some money out of it!!

Amazing strategy to attract new customers - "Bring any new customer from your reference and get 10% Discount on your next purchase"!! Not only a loss for the poor chap who gets suckered but aslo the chump who is gonna get the 10% discount!

He's claiming up to 20 bhp increase from a K&N filter. Wonder which K&N he's using. I can already see Mclaren bhai placing an order for a dozen.

I've seen this racetech stuff and it is one of the cheapest thai brands.
Even a guy on a budget would think twice.
PS:no offence to racetech users.

The 90 degree bend on the intake pipe is really hilarious!!! Especially when coming from the turbocharging industry, where it is decreed in the 10 commandments of turbo installation - 'Thou shalt not have sharp bends on any turbo piping'. And thats for flexible pipes!!!
