Congrats on the buy back. I am sure its an amazing feeling to get your own car back. Do we see a race with a certain turbo esteem? to return the compliments and settle the score.

Lol, the talk has already started? That turbo Esteem is never 'ready', from what I hear.

Considering RD Karthiks NA Esteem beat Psycho's Turbo Esteem without much of a sweat this seems like a walk in the park!!! Of course all this is with a quarter mile track in mind. Take it on the straights and then its a whole different ball game.

I think you got the wrong owner. Either ways, I don't think anyone half enthu about mods can ever stop upgrades. So theoretically, one's car can never be ready. With time and advent of new tech, upgrades keep happening all the time.

PS: Pls keep me informed when your number changes . Had to deal with some deepak today.

Well I think that was some time back, now with the TC Esteem runnings RDs chip and with better rubber I would like to see that NA vs TC race again.
