Hey nice trip. That Lexus looks pretty banged up.

Quote:
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
Viper, you gotta get that ratio changed dude. That 5th gear is good for 372kmph at 9300rpm. LOL

There's no way you're using it all up unless you're in a Mclaren F1. hehe

With the right ratios, the car won't just accelerate better but, it'll also be more confident getting into corners.

Man my second T-BHP meet was awesome.
We discussed cars for a full 6 hours.
Vipers car is just too cool but he plans to increase the power by changing his carbs.
His alloys look great sitting on 14 inch Bridgestone Potenzas and the car feels really smooth.
Hard to believe that it has not been polished since the last 9 months.
The best part about this meet was that i was sitting in the front.
Oh and we did 140kmph with the tacho just below 4000 and the way it accelerates is like wow..
I have one pic of his car which i will try and post.
Drifter really good write up and viper, you got a really sexy ride there.

Hey Shan2nu,
Even I'd love for the car to do 372KMPH. Anyways a lot of changes are in the pipe line. You see this is just at an experimental stage. Will probably arrive at a permanent set up in approx 2-3 weeks after trying out various different Carb options, jetting & fine tuning, modding the gear ratios etc. Not doing anything now till i run her for another 500k after which I can take her to the redline. It is expected to be 9300 RPm but maybe slightly lesser.
