Guys thanks for the wonderful reviews .. Wasn't expecting this kind of a response ..

I would like to thank my parents for putting up with a lot of trouble from my side , specially my dad who used to open doors at really odd hours .. For the support he has always rendered , both mentally and financially .. For being kind enough to get me ICE worth 70k , NOS kits worth 72k , and nearly 50k just for track days and an even insane amount for goa , ooty trips and many more , fuel expenses etc .. I love you dad .. Sorry for not being there at family functions , for having troubled you to search for alternate means of transport while the car was at the garage or taking part in events .. For never objecting to my madness ..

I would also like to thank my GF whose had to put up with even more trouble .. Spend hours with me at the garage seeing me getting the car done up , inspiring me at my madness .. Infact she gifted me a Clutch Assembly & an FPR for my birthday .. For being really understanding and being with me in tough times .. I couldn't have done it without her .. Not when she knew very well that I loved my car more than her .. Or so I had been telling her .. Truth is I love her as much ..

And sorry to all those guys whom I might have hurt by not giving the keys to the car .. I am helpless in this regard .. Specially my college friends who dont understand my POV ..

Oooppsss .. Talking about NOS , there was a point where we installed Nitrous on the car .. Due to non-availability of proper sized jets we had to fabricate them and it didn't work quite well (and that chance of firing NOS on the car remains yet another dream).. Also I never wanted nitrous , dream has been turbo all the way .. Or maybe turbo and nitrous ..

I also spent quite a lot on ICE .. Until I reached that stage where I had no money for ICE anymore .. Jb and gunbir will agree with me ..

PS : I have been threatened by Psycho that he will come back at me .. That he will put up a thread on the tuner's perspective on modding cars .. Knowing the silent mad scientist that he is I am looking forward to this a lot .. And Keshav aka madman aka MadScientist aka Buddha aka Psycho aka Tunner thanks for being there .. And thanks for those fabulous deals and for putting up with my nonsense .. Couldn't have done it without you .. I love you too .. Mahesh before you get to your dirty thoughts , I meant it in a brotherly way .. Over and out ..

hey Rahul , Alexander Hamilton would take a 2nd seat after reading this bro'!!
My respect for you has only grown after reading this !! Hats off man.

It takes a lot to do what you have done on the car and to get to what you have achieved today.

There is always a tomorrow for everyone and yes am sure you will get to what you have wanted to acomplish.Goodluck !!


Now get back to studies .

Best of Luck.. Spend that same amount of time on studies as you did on garages and modding cars and you could be president of IIM's .

kiddo .... Ive read this thread a few times allready and it simply amazes me how you put ur heart into words and that too so frigging beautifully . That car is one helluva lucky piece of machine to have you raping her and then loving her , and just in the right ratios .

I wish you had gone on and on writing ..... I keep logging back in just hoping that I see something more added but so far NO LUCK !!!

And yes , Ill keep reminding you about hqnding your car keys to me though next time I have a feeling I will not manage pushing her as much as I could !!! ;-)
