Heh very nice and fast car ( I have driven a carb 1.3 ZEN so I know) Philipos . Hmm and I know why you have compomotive wheels . Moreover I think I have a advanced driving lesson(flick) pending.

Although it's sad that I have only seen this thead only a day before leaving for the UK otherwise I may have even seen the car for myself once.

And do tell us about your other white elephants.

@ rev - who are you dude ? do i know you ? and its philippos.

the other white elephants one is my daily drive (which i will post shortly), the other will talk about it when its back on the road . & just to tease it used to be a 7 sec car before it went off the road ..when it gets back it should be a 5.5 sec car with out traction control . enough said for now...

Hmm OK Philippos this is Aneesh(check your mobile phonebook). I met you during the K1000 in Bangy at the driver's briefing along with Sandeep Sharma 's CO-driver.

Hey Philipose, no this is Sreshta's and then Vik's car. Now has gone to another friend of mine. And trust me, the Compos and other rally rims are remarkably heavier than the forged stuff for track, like Magline or Volk. But then, they can take some solid abuse. Nice steering wheel, BTW.

Cos, The old one with 13"rims and normal steering was pretty good, unless one is doing insane speeds
No no, baba, I meant the steering wheel itself was a bit weird. Too large, and I found it very slippery at higher speeds.

I have had the priveledge of driving this car ! It is crazily fast & responsive. But I think it is the driving skill that is more important. And that Phil has in abundance.


Cheers

Zen can take the following upsizes.
145/80-13
145/70-13
155/65-13
155/70-13
165/60-13
195/45-14.

A lot depends on the width of alloys.
For my zen 2005 model (4J 145/8013R) I want to upsize. I'm unable to find 5J alloys. Can you please suggest the correct upsize for 5.5J which doesn't make my ride bumpy, doesn't scrape and improves handling! Pls reply since I'm completely lost.

Default Re: my e-zen

Hello everyone, it was my dream to convert my zen into an e zen and to inform you all I have done it. The best and challanging thing was to run a 1.3 l 16 valve engine on a carburetor, which I have been able to achieve. Will upload the pictures maybe tomorrow. The 16 valve thing has made the car smooth the car is not losing the originility of slow city driving i.e. 25-30 kmph in 5 th gear :-)...
