Remove the ambipur dispenser from the top of the HU(known for spoiling the HUs as Ambipur can leak and find its way on/in to the HU face panel.
I see you have kept the amp space packed(with Fire extinguisher, toolkit). Please remove anything from amps vicinity as they tend to get very hot on continued operation. So allow enough air ventilation around amps.
Good FE too. I am sure you push your beast to limits. Have fun and safe Motoring!!
@ Getsurya
I just got my HU - probably will upgrade a few years down the line. My install was done at Evo in Bangalore - Sathya suggested that i go in for a Kenwood and later upgrade it to a 2 Din. Completely agree with your point that it would be better, but i didnt have the budget for it now.
Thanks for the Ambipur insight, i have moved it to the airvent on the side.
I have kept my Jack next to the amb below the passenger seat as it fits perfectly there. The vents for the amp are behind, so i guess its fine.
Last but not the least - right now i'm running in the car, so never really went above 80KMPH.

Jacob, I still will insist you not to keep anything beside amp. You have got a nice set up. Would love to see your ICE in person when I am next in Blr! I liked the spare on the rear!Gives a true SUV sporty look to scorps otherwise 'bald' rear!!cheers:

Guys,

Did you by any chance come across this thread -
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...er-design.html (Tata safari rear brake release Valve(non ABS), disaster by design?)

Have you ever experienced any thing of this kind? I know this is not the right thread for this discussion, but I just wanted Scorpio owners to share their experiences (on the above mentioned thread).

Cheers!!!

@deepgautam: Once, my dad got the rear brakes locked due to very hard breaking at around 90 to 100kmph but no fish tailing effect happened. i ve never experienced anything like this too.

Neither did I on both of my Scorpios. I braked hard once on my non-ABS one on a highway in a turning. Had a little slide before I released the brakes but nothing like fish tailing!

i dont think scorpios sways sideways or fishtails. atleast my non-ABS scorpios come to halt in a straight line always. wheel lock does happen because of the absence of ABS but it does not leave its path. even in tanveer's safari, i feel its a problem with that peculiar vehicle.

Almost certainly upgrading to the mHawk!

if he upgrades to the mHAWK, by any chance, it will be the VLS for sure, not the VLX. he is the guy who believes in buying the lowest variant and sprucing it up according to his liking.
