Great meet guys! You've really had a good time! Too bad I couldn't make it - maybe we can have a mini meet sometime along the sidelines of this one for those who couldn't make it

Everything is in the drivers hand, stay sane and u stay safe ..

Remember if one learns to respect his ride she will respect u in return ..

That said , yes i have bought the NOS kit and its NOT YET installed in the car .. Im not that stupid to install NOS for DAILY DRIVES that too without upgrading rubber .. The day i fell my car cant handle without the change in rubber i shall do so , right now im comfy driving it (as my car still sees shifts at 1750 almost daily, the only time its opened is ONLY at the tbhp meets).. More importantly im tight financially and cant afford to spend a penny more on the car for sometime to come .. I do appreciate ur concerns for my safety but there certainly is a better way to put it than saying "he will kill himslef , dont let him drive" ..
.
Ok chill chill, I'm sorry, was just kiddin there, didnt mean to get you offended en all.


Anyway, hope to see new rubber the next time you come down (or we come down there)

Sam, we must exchange notes on conditioner, yaar.

I see Stuart (Little, not Lima!) is getting some heat for his Hero Jet tyres. Since I have driven that car almost as much as he has, let me give my views. The car drives beautifully, it wheelspins like crazy, and all that jazz. How you drift on this is very simple...you approach a corner at speed, brake, and accelerate through. The rear-end looks around for a while, goes hmmm, and comes around sooner or later. Easy enough to drift if your cycle tyres are bald.

But I tell you, I don't feel unsafe when I give that car some stick. It still corners well, and goes like hell. The only problem is with stopping, because of the bad tyres. So what do you do? Like the little man said, give her some respect. Learn to brake early, don't push it too hard, and you will have a hell of a ride.

That said, PLEASE GET BETTER RUBBER!!!

Nice drive there. You Bangalore guys know how to make great drives and enjoy to the fullest. What happened to veterans like Rudra sir, amitoj etc?

Team-Bangalore, Thats a nice report.
Could not meet you all one to one as my Son was troubling me and I was already late on my schedule for that day (I was on a sightseeing trip with my parent-Inlaws who visited me from Agra).

Whose Baleno was that which overtook me in the straight route back from Nandihill? Who was driving? Man that was dangerous on the Road like that.
