Yeah if the car was slightly more grippy in the wet would have decided to go beyond 180 still had 2500 rpm to go. Loved the climb up and the way down, would have loved it even more if Memo let me get past him on the way up (was wishing I could do it under 4 mins, and my apologies for the person on the backseat being thrown all around as I dont have seat belts on the back)and if I hadnt been slowed on the way down on the long curve by a cop jeep standing in the center of the road and the cop fighting it out with a bus driver (thank god memo was far behind this time) and a group of slow cars at the last 3 bends.

Loved the ride but could have been even better if the roads had been dry, never had the heart to try any stunts around, and am yet to learn what pedal to metal means, was on half throttle on the highway, and quarter on the climb.

Thanks guys for a great drive.

Altho jkDas didnt come in his ride, he still had the best time amongst all of us- having specialized in male photography with Sankar as his subject.

Thanx jk, for pics with me in there... i was wondering if i was on 'invisible' mode there...

As about bowling atop the hill... i had to stop you from it, as the last thing we would have wanted is to start an avalanche there.

More pics:

Ikon power



L-R : The Rally Sport 1.6, Shaz's Ikon 1.6, and my Flair.

The battered Vitara, which was 4 wheel powered. Yes, all-time.



The engine bay



Airbags??

Jomz was like..I did see the speedo pass 190 then I fainted.
After that he was sick!

I missed my bike. Psycho hear me?

I was damn impressed by the Dicor. I wanted the roads to be more dusty when we drove over potholes etc.

It was sad that the Bullet didnt have a working speedo. I should have done 120 plus easily.

What I really missed was when all the cars...the Balenos taking down the Vtecs along the highway. I had stopped for checking air for the Bull when they were tearing down the roads, the buzzing in the air of all these cars were great and couldnt stop grinning when localites started commenting.

Nahi rey uncle , you got me wrong .. I was referring to your car and the others as well in comparison with Rks' supercar (santro with 5j) .. It was meant to be sarcastic .. For better grip in the wet you ought change to neova's .. They are out of this world .. Ask akshay , anup , jk , binoy (who infact said the neova's are 30% more grippy than his brand new es100's) , pawan and vikas ..

Finally I see that jomz has recovered from his shock of riding shotgun in the elantra .. That mallu I tell you is as insane as his crdi engine is .. Tadu , how about a drive next sunday to nandi hills ?? Car will be back by then from work .. This time though it will give you a run for your money ..

For all those who were unaware , my car might be having either fried piston rings (worst possible case) or a blown headgasket (remember I have two) leading to leakage of oil thus giving out white smoke at anything over 3k .. So guys dont be surprised after seeing the vidoes and the smokey baleno .. Too high in-cylinder compression is the root cause , will be going lower on the compression by this weekend and get the fuelling right .. Though this could still be my last long drive with her she did manage not to disappoint me .. Touched 200 and I didnt have to tow her back home (which i was expecting) .. And she handled like a gem on the ghats .. Though she is atleast 25-30% slower than she was on the pune-mumbai expressway she will be back to good health really soon ..

Once again I would love to thank you all for coming from different parts of the city and making this meet a huge success .. And thanks for the kind words .. Hoping to see you all at more such meets .. And special thanks to psycho for being ON TIME ONCE ..

Just got the CD from lukeskywalker and anup , shall be dropping it off at akshay's place once I am done with a few checkup's at the hospital .. The video's are awesome I tell you ..

My car ended up as an ambulance once Jomz ended up sick. He went and rested in it, and also took the ride home with me. The guy was literally talking in his sleep. And yeah, he had contracted Elantrophobia, thanx to Tadu's driving.
