iceman...sorry dude, had some stuff at home that cropped up last minute, and since i am designated driver at home (not that im complaining), all plans crashed.

but we're on for tgif, right? and we can try out the quick stuff next weekend, if not after tgif itself.

Shan2nu, is there any point in convincing you that a certain car with Variable valve timing and electronic lift control is the safest, cheapest and best way to travel to Bangalore?

If you think that mechs have WRC skill, then you gotta take a look at some of the cab drivers in b'lore... they get an OMNI, and they drive like they're in a Imperza... flying through the corners... I once fgot a cab driver to take my o the airport, and made the mistake of sayin "quick" to him, promising a tip. I did not know that the Indica could do what it did. The guy did 90degree turns on almost every bend, just to avoid the slow moving guy on the left, made the tyres squeal so loud, it beat the tamil music that he was blaring out... and all this with the calmest look on his face throughout...

ZTry it sometime. Promise them tip, you'll get a tast of WRC in 'namma-bangaluru'... hehe...

Cheers!!

Thumbs up

Aveek dude amazing man...... even ive raced on Sajapur ring road....... in my octavia....... its freakin scary especially at the intersections i really wonder how you guys did that man... hats off!..... you can hit 170Kmph on that road..... but you need to have a lot of gutts to take through those intersections...... you should try this road too man, Linking road which connects koramangala and airport road its a pretty short streach but there are no intersections........... let us know more stuff like this man....

Seriously some women drivers are really good, not to mention , i did get beaten on Linking road by a female homo sepien, wonder what she had hooked up to her Ikon 1.6....

Hey guys, careful with those intersections. U can do what ever you want between them but, make sure you reduce your speed when you get there. For the rec, i did 180kmph between 2 intersections while test driving the Accord 2.4 M/T.

Intersections were deserted... VER late at night, and we were both flashing our beams like crazy to the other (rare) motorists anyways, so not too much that either we or the pedestrians couldn't see...

Somehow, I'm apprehensive bout taking the left hand bend on the Intermidiate Ring Road (koramangala - airport road - indiranagar) too quick cause the back of the Honda just loses it completely, and I've been in one really crappy tail-sliding situation before, and have no desire to be in it again... hehe... will try it when I gt counterweights in the trunk though... hehe... thanks a lot!

Cheers!!

No offence to Lancer owners, but I'd vote for ANYTHING over the Lancer.

i love a stock BALENO
and more than that
a modded baleno ROCKS

lancer never seemed to impress me in terms of power
only the looks of a lancer sport sometimes catches my eyes
