ok, here goes my set of snaps... just five of them.

raid de himalayas champ (sideways) in an animated discussion with samurai, sharing his experience of how b@!!$ got reinforced.....





Sticking to the team-bhp meet norm of that that man... that that money, SB dint even swallow his saliva , so that he dint have to pitch in anything... but our man... nitrous laid a bait... cajoled him to just have a peanut... poor SB carefully weighing his option without knowing what was in the offing






Mission accomplished....SB thought, it was afterall a peanut.... but it proved to be a costly one... Nitrous now i know, why you are keen on conducting team bhp meets... look at the smile on his face.



here is what you get see, when you sit in sideway's lancer. let me try to recollect what the meters are for.... air fuel ratio, fuel pressure.. dont know that the rest are for... if there was a meter to read the heart beat rate of the passengers... then it would broken down for sure... what do you say samurai..... there is a onboard computer (partially seen in the pic.. behind the gear lever) with which you can control the AF mixture ratio and whole lot of things.....


here is arka's jeep and sideways lancer.... if you observe jeep has a GC of 25 inches.... caution... vertigoes are advised against peeping out of the arka's jeep.

Thanks SZ. Yes it was a nice meet in its own sweet way.

Remember we discussed it right after this photo was taken, only a Canon dSLR can take something this clean at ISO 1600.

This can be further improved though. Invite tifosikrishna for one more session, let him bring his tripod and his widest lens, I think he planning to buy a pro quality wide lens soon. Park the car where it is really dark, no streets lights, etc., turn on the ignition. Then watch what tifosi can do without flash. Placing the tripod inside the car is tricky, but it can be done.

@tifosikrishna: Sorry man, we could have discussed photography, but the occasion was different. BTW, your meet photographs are the best, you obviously spent lots of time composing and experimenting.

Thanks Farhan. Infact there is loads of shake in the picture, but looks ok from a distance. Low shutter speed and battery of speakers making noise from behind generously contributed to the shake.

Next time, we will try to get a better shot with a tripod.

Samurai, Thanks for your generous compliment. Yes, we could have discussed about photography, but as you said, this was not the occasion. But i thoroughly enjoyed the meet, especially the technical discussion between sideways and ex670c a.k.a arka on diesel engines, differential et al....
