Buddy, i wish i could but i cannot but whenever my dad's driver is there he lets me behind the wheel.
Or even my mom's driver. Real Good fun to scare him by accelerating hard.
You should see his face when i take a U turn to come back downhill.
Besides, no car at home except the Mercedes and there is no way in Hell that i would drive the car.

Meet Report 12/May/2005

A small report of a small meet.

Today i stratos, viper and lamborghini met up at the petrol pump opposite cadburys at mahalaxmi. When i arrived, mechanics were busy tinkering under the hood. The idling wasnt right...they were trying to fix that....so an hour passed at the petrol pump. Had checked the alignment as well but there were still problems...we left anyway for the expressway picking up stratos on the way from sion where i parked my car.
After a brief introduction with each other, we were off.

Viper at the wheel was taking it easy, the engine was brand new so no fancy stuff on the revcounter.
We didnt go all the way till pune....the temperature needle was heading north through the ghats...viper didnt want to risk it so we turned back at lonavala. We stopped at the food mall for lunch...after that we were back on the expressway managing around 120 kmph at around 3000rpm in 5th gear...and can you believe it this engine redlines at 9300rpm...but for todays run...the ceiling was around 5000rpm. And the sound from inside the car was nice...viper wants to change the exhaust as well...so im expecting to get only better. Even though the engine is not in the perfect state of tune...fuel efficiency was in the region of 9kmpl.

Man does she pull...sounds pretty good as well...we just came back from the expressway run...there was a flat spot which viper was complaining about and even about the handling, there was some alignment problem...still lots of tinkering to be done...wait till its completed its going to be one hell of a machine.

Here are some pics of the meet, should have taken more (mental note - remember to take more pics).

Vipers souped up esteem.






A crashed lexus, there were so many crashes we saw today...but this was the worst one...the others were all trucks.



On our way back, viper and lambo dropped me and stratos at sion...while they headed home, i and stratos stopped for some coffee and to discuss more cars.
All in all a nice little meet.

[EDIT]
Viper just confirmed, the car returned 11kmpl...the gauge was faulty.
