Default Skoda RS!

A different one, an Elantra "huffing and puffing" behind a 300bhp RS.

. Will upload and give links for the slightly better version tomorrow.

The RS was driven by Mathew, Peter's Man Friday for the performance business. He also did some "minor wiring" on mine some time back.

And it was Jomz'z first time with a handy cam, excuse the slightly shaky pictures.

No LSD. Quaife ATB is on the way. 300bhp in the wet, just be happy it wasn't freakin RWD. We would have been sweeping pieces of him off Nandi Hills.

Samurai, 9 mins is possible. When you are younger Just kidding! Downhill on a bicycle is a wonderful experience, and 9 mins doesn't seem farfetched.

Yes, we need to do this more often. But seeing as we are always at The Grand Ashok or CoffeefreakinDay, it's a little hard.

Ok, just mapped the route on Google Earth. Works out to around 7 km, which means we averaged around 60 kmph. If someone did 4 min 30 seconds, the average is over 90 kmph! And I remember taking some of the sharpest turns in first gear, so my minimum would have been around 30 kmph.

This is the route. Hand-mapped with that path tool, so don't get on me!

And the thumbnail, for anyone that wants the full-size version.

The deviation at the highway reads 22kms to nandibetta .. Spoke to scan yesterday who says that from the shops to the final corner before the arch its 8kms .. I guess they will be heading there next week .. Probably will be joining them ..

And those who want to see the nature of the roads , kindly zoom in on the destination show by akshay on google earth .. Its quite clearly visible ..

the claim of 4.30 is only for 3 cars which are Wolf's vtec, Psycho's tc esteem and the vitara in 4wd(high)mode,by the way i really don't remember using the 1st gear on the vitara, by the way the vitara runs a H27A i.e. a 2.7l V6(petrol), so for every one who says it will not do such a run, you have got it wrong..... and yes there was 2 or 3 points in the climb when i remember speedo in the vitara showed over a 100, by the way on the clind we just encountered a trax driving up and he let all 3 cars though the moment he saw them in his rview, and after seeing taddu's video what i observed is he has encountered 3 bikes riding down hill, 2-3 bikes going uphill, i can see him slowing for a car driving at him in the opp direction and there seems to be a cut in the video at 4.27mins..... and there is one point at the hair pins where he has run a little wide and slows to correct it so all this put together is added time..

If speeds varied from 30-100 kmph, then avg. speed could have been 70 kmph or so (given that there were not too many sharp turns), so 4:30 mins means a distance of ~5.25 kms. But Tadukuttan's (first) video ran for 5:45 mins, which does not tally with the claimed 4:30 mins -- is the video not in real time? I didn't see the full video, as my network is very slow right now.
Bang on Rks!! The claims of the fellow members are tooooo unreallistic the Balenos and Zen did 120-130 at some stretches and everyone was driving quite hard-which they claim they did not.

However to my reasoning 4mins30 is an insane timing on the climb!! May be the guys started the StopWatch from Half Way LOL!!-Just kidding. Of the 7Min Climb we can probably think of improving just over 1Min-1.30 time with good tyres and good driver behind the wheel. may be 5.00-6.00 is a reasonable time we can give, Moreover GUYS were also worried about the Vehicles coming downhill-4.30???Gimme a Break mann!!If its really true i want to sit in that car man seriously

Few pics from my side , though not many .. Have a couple of videos that are undergoing processing by akshay ..


Check the following pic :
Wolfie , memo and tuner intently discussing the strategy up the climb I guess .. Unfortunately I didn't quite work out at the end of it all it seems .. Talking about strategies , loved memo's .. Shed weight , go faster that simple .. Maybe thats why the vitara came in bits and pieces .. All other fast cars out there take a hint ..




Finally , managed to catch the culprit who forgot to tighten my lugs ..


Poor fellow hasn't yet been warned that I am planning to unleash this beast out on him ..



Slightly Off Topic , can you guess who this blue headed barrel is ?? Rotflmao !!




On a slightly sadder note , just got some news from the garage .. One piston has cracked due to the high in volume cylinder compression .. Added to that a leaking headgasket .. The car was surely on limp mode .. Still she managed 200 on the highway and a good descent in under 6 mins .. Maybe thats love .. For this could well have been my last drive with her .. You guys must be thinking Im mad aren't you ??

Dont worry yaar , this memo no is a race driver .. Some years back (no no he is not 40+) used to race for mercedes junior class in germany .. To him going off the throttle to brake also is like loosing ages .. Dont churn yourself more thinking about the drive .. Cant have you fall sick again ..
