@johy- you are most welcome to join in. most probably the next meet will be held in december when Rudra Sen, suman and zappo will be in kolkata.

and may be by then there will be more members in Kolkata.

PS: lets make that one a gala one.

@mods: please change the title/subject of the meet. because the meet already took place.

Like someone once rightly said ..."s**t happens!"

But then what better way to see Eagle F1's at work. Does it really work that way when the fluid happens to be water!

Yes, the eagle F1s DO scoop up everything from the road and then aim it carefully at the car following.

Ask revvhead when we drove to Lonavala, he kept ducking lol.

It happened just after we hit Rajarhat road... before 1100D started "pushing" you on! You were leading the pack, so you missed it.

@ shuvd - welcome to team BHP!

yep i will change the tyres by next week. its great to hear that you had a good time. didnt get the opportunity to take a snap of the "mammoth" JBL bass tube in your octy's boot.

we will have another meet again. i guess by the next meet the number of members @kolkata will increase and we can all have blast.

@shuvd - please go through the rules section because smileys are restricted to two per post and sms language are not allowed.

I think there was more to the Eagle F1 show than just the cowdung incident. The Baleno's maybe in a better position to say. Haldiram Flyover @140 on the outside lane. Infact even I was not so sure but always knew I can take help from the wal!!

I probably had the best seat in the house. was a very impressive move, the way the ikon took the flyover curve at that speed (around 80 i would say). i was worried u would lose control, but turned out things were under control!
Eagle F1's definitely played a big part in that!
Not easy to push the Santro that hard... higher centre of gravity, less stable, smaller tyres etc. However, I can do much more with the fatter tyres (165's tubeless Goodyears) than I could with stock.
