As I see it, the meet is over, reports were posted, photos were posted, videos were posted, lots of discussion on the meet happened. Now all I see is general chitchat and OT talk.

This is a meet thread, we will be storing this forever. Why should anybody who reads this thread in future go through all the chit chat? What value does it add to the thread? Please understand why we mods intervene, we want to keep the threads meaningful and focussed.

You'll both notice that there is a "I hope" at the very end exactly intended to ward off jokers like you. Amen.

See the two posts after my post, what value are they adding? If v1p3r takes one more week, this thread will double in size exchanging sweet nothings. Anyway, I'll lock this thread until v1p3r is ready to post this videos. He can PM the mods when he is ready.

mclaren1885 - thats a very good video. Thx for posting. Where was your lug-stricken Baleno pulled over - didnt see it in the video.

tadu - great drive. Nice overtaking the v1p3r Baleno. And thats Vikram_D's black Swift that I was driving which you overtook after some compassion from me. Btw - who was your navigator?

Well I remember having pulled over to the RHS twice to check what had happened .. Initially I had feared driveshaft failure , then realized that it had to be the rims on the second attempt .. Have a video from my car , will upload it by morning ..

That was a KSRTC bus that had broken down at the exact center of that hairpin curve. And the driver also had given up trying to repair it and was having a smoke on the parapet wall

The bus was concked .. I heard the first lot of cars that went down had a real scare .. The bus was stationed a bit further down the road then .. Luckily while coming down it was easily spotted by all of us ..

Even lucky we were that we could squeeze through .. If not , we might have to be there only for a good part of 3hrs or so until they got some help ..

Convert 3gp to WMV or AVI or any format that windows movie maker supports.
To convert try total video convertor (Shareware), SUPER (freeware), MediaCoder (freeware).

Nice video btw.
