Anger!!!!Cause of most of the TBhpians and also of a lotta accidents.
Right......my turn now.
1) Like every1,Impatient.Thats what i need to improvise on.I`ve even rammed my m-800 years back into an ikon at breach candy,cos he was kinda blocking my way,and going to slow despite honking.
2) I revv the car a lot.I know its bad for the car,but im into this habit of revvin till the redline on each gear.
3) Screech.....i start with a screech most of the time.I love the impression on the Paandus face after he hears the screech.Looks so harrowed.
4) Handbrake.While parking the car i usually pull up the handbrake and rotate the car to a 60deg angle,while the car is still in motion.Luv that.But gotcha stop it.

Thats bout it for now......
Cya.

I definitely need to work on my patience. Part of the problem lies in the car I drive. The Conti dosen't like to be driven at city speeds. It's more of a cruiser and because of that, I regularly achieve speeds in excess of 100km/h. Rickshaws, taxis and jaywalkers (especially college kids) really get on my nerves. I end up abusing a lot of people. Politicians and Govt. officials are next in the firing line - for bad roads.

Hi Aditya,

The worst part with conti's at city speeds is watching the water temp gauge going up... ended up adding a electric fan to the radiator to keep up with the traffic snarls *

Somewhat like X-machine, i....

1. sometimes get the feeling that i should ram some people up ahead going very slow. Happened with me the other day when i saw this guy on a Karizma up ahead changing lanes like mad on the highway but was going slower than me. I rolled down my window at the next signal and gave him a piece of my mind, showed him my got bhp sticker and told him "yours is 17, mine is 60" Dont mess with me"

2. Well for no other reason am i called revvmaster anyways. Shan2nu and GTO want me to revv a 1000 cars by the time i'm 50. I sure will i suppose. Geez, thanx guys.

3. Wheelspin in front of pandus... hahaha... ask Shan2nu what i did outside sidewok once after the race. He sure as hell remembers.

4. I use the handbrake a lot. Especially during turns and while slowing down from very fast speeds.

V12, i think you can get away with that fear of driving on the expressway at nights. I do it quite often and it is quite bright actually with quite a few refllectors on the road. Try doin runs b/w 5:30 and 7:00 in the evening. Later than that you'll surely encounter problems.

No offence, but some of you guys could really do with therapy for road rage!!

For me, theres only one solution to Bombay traffic indiscipline : The Jeep.

Well, I haven't been behind the wheel for too long time, but, when ever i've been......i've scared the passengers. I've been a complete idiot!! .I have graduated from a cycle to a car in very recent times , but, the driving style hasn't changed much. I sverve thru lanes as if i'm riding a cycle, overtake from any side of the road, yup....cycle ishtyle. But, i'm curbing those instincts. Now, i'm getting much better. (Thanks to dad who sits next to me all the time i drive!! )

But, i don't speed. I keep my max speed limit to say a 70-80 kmph on highways and a max of 60 in city.
