GS's Skyline was done up by Croydon Racing fron Sydney. Yes, the car did perform the way you said it would. But I still fail to see what you had to do with all this sitting in Bangalore. At the most you might have done is recommend them to him.

It's awesome to see this caliber of a car in India. I am happy to see it, and hope there will be many more in the future.

And if I read correctly, I believe Dominator stated somewhere that he had to do with sponsorship or marketing or something like that.

ust for the record . Who are you to point fingers ? No offence but by the way you post in all the threads , i think you are all talk no show .

And what do you mean by " At the most you might have done is recommend them to him " , You think Mr Gautam Singhania hasnt heard of anything called the internet , if he had to find the right tuner for his skyline . Please read Dominators posts which mention that hes been working on the car since day 1 .

Mods im sorry if this is a incorrect post but i just had to post this .

Varun, he might be there from day one however its that DOMinator hasn't presented himself or any of his own pics with skyline..so thats why the doubt.. Secondly, if he did have alot to do with it, which I pray he has.. I would like to talk to him about other builds that he is into..(DOM) are you listening? Well,if your hands touched that skylines oil, KUDOS to you bro.

dominator,

I have gone though this whole thread again. I didnt post earlier but now I want to. I always had my doubts on GS being a great driver but Sunday's times and GS's driving has changed my thoughts on him. He drove fabulously well and the car didnt what it was meant to do. Win the event. Hats off to you and your team who have made this monster machine. Cars like these are rarely seen at any drag event in India and we were lucky to experience just that. I hope the motorsport athorities realize that we have the cars to race and they should look at making professional drag strips now. I am sure you will work on your success this year do something even more special for next year.

I have seen many posts in this thread doubting the capabilities of this car but I am sure they are put to rest and the critics have been silienced.

Congratulations to you and your entire team from Australia. It was a pleasure watching this car perform on track.

Guys, just to clarify >

I do not own the car, so I will let the media highlight the facts with the rightful permission of the owner.

I always stress about the word " WE " because I always belive that any sport is a Team Work. I could have had the worlds best car,but it still required a very brave driver to steer it through.The car has just not popped up out of the blue.We were a team of 3 people out on a mission.Our brief was very simple, " Want The Fastest Car in India ".
Apart from tuning I was involved in every aspect.
I still maintain that I do not want to take any individual credit, it was a Team effort. I was assigned a job and we managed to do it.

Hey kid, I was standing with you and Jesal at the SR. I have nothing to "show" because I didnt "claim" anything here.

Lots of people claim a lot of things here like the guy on cardomain.com. So dont believe everything you read kid, unless you have some substantial evidence to be so confident about someone. This Dominator guy may even have something to do with the car but if I was in his place, I would have been proud to tell people in what way I was involved. I dont think there's anything shameful about being involved with a car like this.

Hey kid, first of all I dont need to "show" anything because I dont "claim" anything. Secondly, I dont need your approval to post in any thread and thirdly, who are you? An advocate for dominator?

Ok. This stops now and here guys. No fighting and bickering.

Varun tone down your language please. No personal attacks on any member. I hope thats understood. You have already caused double jeopardy to yourself by reposting that attacking mail of yours when a moderator had already removed the same post earlier. Treat this as a final warning.

Varun, Rehaan & Dippy : Thanks guys for all your support. I am a man of very few words and hate being in the limelight.Friends from bangalore who have known me will vouch for it.I am very shy by nature and leave the publicity to more deserving guys.I do not need the publicity, fame or name because it is not my profession. It is just a very passionate hobby. I guess all "BAWAS" like me are very passionate about automobile.Even during my visits to Australia for testing and tuning I was very discreet about it. The local Aussie was very curious, but even in an alien country I just stuck to my purpose - progress of the car.Even during the entire stay at Kharghar I did not go around posing or making claims.My job was to stay behind the scenes and ensure that the car had a good run. I am sorry if I am made that way.

And let me guess, your name ends in a Y.

Together you can make KY and go super smooth and friction free.

But then all that nice rubber would lose traction.

Damn, isn't Sunday over yet?

Even I feel his name starts with K and ends with Y like Sam said. But not sure because of this post by Dominator.
