Dozing off till 8 did come with some negatives. Like missing the peek-a-boo of the 300 BHP RS and walking up and down the hill for 30 mins trying to figure where you guys are. Ginger calling quits didn't help the cause either.

In fact the previous night after i spoke to you guys, i got my cam, data cable and laptop all set. But partying till 5 AM was not the best way to do it. Come to think of it, maybe it was better this way, else i might have dozed off enroute.

Next time will be on time. No partying on the eve of a drive.

And kudos to you guys for organising the whole show. Thank You.

What is the difference between j and jj? I may have some interest in Neovas since the driving impressions sound outstanding. I would love to try a set once I gather up enough money but difference between j and jj first please?

Sorry for going off topic on the meet thread.

Well, its was a fantastic drive... Mostly people reached on time, wide variety of cars and excellent climate except a few puddles acting as speed brakers to me(thanks to my low slung exhaust pipe).

Dude I saw that Ikon blazing past your baleno...why you taking it on my vtec now bro???LOL...

The Ikon was quick but have a heart dude, dont pit it against a vtec...
While the poor guy was gunning the hell out of his car belting all over the pot holes and puddles I was just about keeping up with him driving extremly carefully as my exhaust was scraping on smallest of undulations and I also coz my head gasket was leaking which is why my car wasnt idling well....which made you ask if I was running a cam! !!
Moreover, whats with the fully modded OHC vtec??? ... Care to explain ????? Looks like you know my car better than myself!!!

Infact I was expecting few quicker cars to run against... RS was no match at all so thats out...only psychos car looked quick among the whole lot...and unfortunately Psycho left to the dhaba while I was waiting for him for a run. The only other quick car was my friends vtec, the grey one that overtook you while you both decided to take on each other on the highway...LOL!!! That was quite a seen...

Fully-modded minus cam Ikon was faaast for a stock car, and yes, he was ahead of me. Chill man, your car is probably the quickest NA Vtec in India.

Great thread. This helped me get familiar with a lot of members, and with the photographs of some too. This must have been a memorable experience for all the participants. Even the readers can imagine the fun that the participants must have had.

The participants are all praise for Elantra. And to think that Hyundai was not able to market this car properly in India, despite this car being described as a VFM by reviewers.

Dear Readers,

If you liked reading abt this - the largest(?) Team-BHP drive ever, whose memorable and passionate experiences are being described here, please do rate this thread. I've, of course, given it a 5-star rating.

Participant goats - pl give it a 6-star rating, if possible.

Mclaren1885 - I never thot I'd say this ("M=Mismatched wheels", aise hi always came to mind ), but, honestly-great job organizing.

You ppl had a whale of a time...

Damn, I missed it.. I had a terrible weekend. My car had a shunt friday, Some idiot motorcyclist clinging his helmet on the mirror banged the rear fender when I was waiting to take a U turn. So left the car for body work.

Still, I thought I would hitch a ride with some one, but something came up in Tumkur, and I had to ride a KSRTC bus to Tumkur .

Default Drive up Nandi Hills, Bangalore

While V1P3R is doing the trip movie, here is a clip, would help folks understand the road up Nandi hills.



And now, will "it" strike again?
