Yeah, he's a really good driver. Even managed to go below 17 seconds with his S2000 at Jakkur once.

Well from what I know, he's not as good a driver as he's made out to be. His performances in the S2000 are some what testament of that. But, let's see what happens at the Speed Run shall we?

i have seen him race and his launches are real good. his response timings are also good. dont know what happened here. the car looks good but dont think it would need the shoot or full throttle. looks more of a gimmick advertisement car than a runner.

@ liv2drv i thought you mentioned you have seen the car or did i get that part wrong?

Well, KD and the old Peugeot whooped him badly. There are videos on this forum which proved this

You need to meet Mihir Dharkar.

This car's going to get violated by the white Supra if he could only manage a 11.252 in Australia. So much for 1080 bhp or whatever.

why do i need to meet Mihir Dharkar . isnt he the same guy with the black STI.
I dont dissagree that the supra, mustang, corvette will desimate the skyline on the track. i have seen the supra perform in the drags and the car is fast.
PS i only said his launch was good ( reflex times on the sheet) besides that my money does not go with him.

Holy Moly, what a whale of confusing posts here. I guess the Skyline will be given a good run for its money by the Supra.

He may not launch like god, but he's probably a close 2nd. And this opinion is shared by a lot of people.

i wish him all the luck on the track and hope he does not dissapoint all his fans .
i purely believe it is 30% man and 70% machine on the track, so hope the better man and machine wins. i am going to be just another spectator. now lets not go .
