Looks like you need that cold beer .. there's a difference between a truck & a lorry.

You can blame themag for the shake. he dint know how to use his camera phone. come to think of it he dint know the road as well.

My so called navigator had no sense of navigation. the result being the evasive action and then further down leading to 2 lancers in mid air after taking off.

I had no choice but to go sideways. the road ended abruptly leading to a mud road. the exit was 90degrees to the right and there was a barricade in front. If I went forward we would have plowed into the barricades. It wasnt so bad but I dont like locking my brakes and flat spotting my tyres.

Yes, I'm sure at your power level, it makes a lot of difference to your car's output.

Just kidding, please don't kill me! Couldn't resist!

Chill dude I wont kill you. I know it doesnt make a difference but they are new tyres so more on the mind that I flat spotted them.

But to tell you the truth the steering did begin to vibrate a little more after that.

I dint know that chap was pawan. He was awefully quiet throughout and we dint hear any american supercar stories as well.

The drive was good... did go beyond 190kmph 'on the speedo' for couple of times. Driving sideways to avoid the barrels was fun So was the exit from the freeway after that incident screeching all the wheels on the turns...hehe

What was not fun was hitting the speedbreaker...

And 'Caffeine Kick' is just a fancy name for the humble 'black coffee'...

Nice drive Sankar enjoyed seeing you drive.

yeah first was run i forgot to switch off the ac and return I guess my car topped out at 180kmph.

Well even for that I blame themag. I was carrying excess weight. JKdas was right we should have thrown him out on the second run.

You guys seem to have had a lot of fun. I am truly sorry v1p3r & the rest for not making it. by the time i got back from my business, i was too damn tired (maybe my age, but i dont like to say it) plus the fact that my friend had been chilling a bottle of Blue from the afternoon. I sincerely wished some of you would have turned up at thippasandra, since i could not make it. Maybe, no surely next time i will meet you chaps & spend some 'quality' time. Yes, i did get the comps installed on my love & am now presently happy about it. Me & my friend (in his Vtec) had a lot of fun today, just like you guys did, when we drove from BLR to Hosur. 2 cars zipping through the traffic was an amazing sight. we exchanged cars in between & went all the way to krishnagiri for the heck of it & came back to hosur. Hope to meet you guys sometime soon (planning another trip by April end).
cheers

That does it. I demand a full refund. Or is it the other way round?

Btw- I do know that road well - everything done was with intent

Since you admit you were carrying excess weight you shoulda jumped outta the car.
