Had fun last night. But, the roads were not as empty as we wanted. Could manage just a few spirited bursts
Planet, Razor and Black Pearl helped with the pics and the video clips. The newly wed Planet was in kind of a hurry and didn't join us for the drive though.
I badly need to upgrade my brake pads. The stock brakes are grossly inadequate now. Waiting for used vRS alloys. Till the brakes are done, I can't risk high speed runs.
Razor and BP saw flame coming out of the exhaust from time to time. Is it normal? I'm a bit worried.

@ Ajmat - Ok sir. Actually, its VERY HARD to drive this car soberly!
@ HappyWheels - We sure had fun!!
@ PraJEEP - Don't know about the dogs. But, I've seen them chase turbo charged cars. Maybe its got something to do with the turbo whistle?

@ Planet - Thanks for posting the pics and the video. But, the car looks very slow..

@ Bomi - Thanks dude!

[quote=shuvd;723908; @ Planet - Thanks for posting the pics and the video. But, the car looks very slow[/quote]

i guess it is because of the frames in the videos - the videos in the cam look great - my cam captures in .MOV file format and gets switched to .FLV format - that could be one of the reasons.

will do a proper shoot soon. till then enjoy your ride and drive safe.

Isn't that a good thing. You will have your competitors underestimating you! In such case, the look on the face when you blast thru - priceless!

had great fun last night thanks to shuvd and razor. was going through the vidoes taken my handycam and must say that one has to see the car in flesh to understand what speeds and acceleration Silver Bullet is capable of. The videos simply dont do any justice. also I need a lot of practice to properly focus on the car at those speeds
