Default comparisons

guess what ..there are people comparing opel corsas to corvettes, ferraris, evos and subarus to prove they having tuning potential...[/quote]

Hey dude, seems like you haven't heard of the tuned opel corsas or vauxhall corsas from Brazil and UK. Search for videos and pictures on google and you'll find more Opel and vauxhall corsas beating the crap out of ferraris, M5s, 911s etc than any other car on the track. By the way, a friend of mine in UK drives a 540 bhp vauxhall corsa C1.6 (more or less similiar to our very own opel corsa 1.6) on the tracks. And boy can that car kick some A**!

Default Update - Car is No More

Hi Guys,

The much talked about 600 BHP Subaru is now no more. It met with a massive accident at Juhu where the driver lost control of the car.

Apparently the car is a total loss. No one got injured and no other car was involved.

Viper

PS- This is from confirmed sources and not a rumour. Pics witheld on request

This is SAD NEWS
Boys have no Business being given such cars.
They have no clue how to handle them.
Neway, because it was a STI everyone is saved!! she is too too Strong, but doesnt give a license to rough around.
Very Very Sad, and we will be told that it wasnt the drivers fault.
We all must remember that we need to Save ourselves from others Errors, and that we need extremely high and Quick responses to handle such cars.
After Alcohol, I drive at max 70kmph at worli or marine drive, I am stupid, I guess. but this is because I wouldnt remember the thrill i got, the next morning neway!!!

I hope mihir is fine. This is shocking news. Infact this is the second accident in less than a year I guess. Though in the first he was riding passenger. Hope he is alright.

He is no boy. If there is anyone who can handle this car he is one among them. He has undergone professional training abroad on track and drag racing. I have personally seen him drive and he is like the inspiration to most of us. Though would like to know the exact details and when this incident occured.
