I have raced quite a bit with my dad's Honda City...damm it was a sexy car....just love the way the engine rev's up...pull up at a single and out accelerate the wind out the others there...There have been many exciting races i have been in but nothing beats when i tried to race myself(stupid isnt)
It was 1st March 2003 the very day India beat Pak in the world cup.Like the rest of Bombay i was out on the streets with my friends in the Honda City drove all around later dropped most friends (giving advice to one about driving safely).Then just me another friend decided to go to reclamation as it wasnt yet open officially(or so i thought...that you could drive up and down anyway you want...if you get wat i am saying).With India winning...i was all pumped...i took the left frmo Mahim causway to enter the strecth at reclamation...drove the car sanely upto the 'U' turn.I turned...paused for a bit...stoppped put the car in 1st...revved her...and let the clutch go n stepped on the gas(not knowing wat was in store for me!) I redlined her in 1st n 2nd...shifted to 3rd reaching upto 100 kmph...just then my friend shouted WAT THE HELL R U DOING LOOK AHEAD....it was too late the $%^#@(& @ MSRDC at put up a concrete road block...i didnt notice it before...slammed the brakes...my friend pullled the hand brake it caused the car to skid and BAMM i had banged into the road block shattering the concrete blocks and totally wrecking the car but the stereo was still working!!.Now this says a lot about how safe the car is and how stupid i am!! Neither me nor my friend were injured not even scratches!! It was totally awesome though!!

Please see this as an detterent to road racing....it is highly dangerous especially in a city like Mumbai where anything can come up anywhere!

holy mother of s*** man ! thts highly dangerous driving there...i knw they just put some blocks out of nowhere sometimes but that was serioulsy risky stuff there man...better be careful dude...life is precious...one thing i didn't get though is where were u looking when ur frnd shouted ? speedo ?? anyway thanks to the car ur safe...hmm..interesting the car's stereo was still wrkng..mayb to keep u entertained till help arrived anywho so how much was the damage on ur car ? Honda's are really expensive as far as denting repairing goes..i had a rear end shunt in aug last year & it cost me 55g ! the trunk lid had to be replaced with the taillight & the bumper !

Btw r u maharashtrian by any chance ? just curious...

Drive safe dude....

The light's were pretty dim...and those A$$^&*$ had painted the road block on the other side so i really couldnt make it out!!
Just wanna let ppl know that road racing can be dangerous even if done alone!

Yeah man, ther's nothing like owning a City. Have owned the Vtec since Sep 2001 and i've never, even for a sigle moment, regretted buying it.

I heard of a Vtec for sale in Blore. According to sources, that car is 1.5 years old and can be your's for 5 lakhs!!!

I'll personally check it out and let you guys know about the details.

Is there anything in particular, that you might want me to checkout?

Regards...
