Team-BHP drive to Nandi hills meet report
Oh boy. what a meet. We had close to 40 members and 25 cars. Started off from Mekhri circle. Almost Everyone was there by 6:15. Continued on to the next meet point Hebbal.
At Mekhri Circle we had like 10 cars. ikons, swifts, optras, balenos, vtecs, safari dicor, elantra, a Suzuki Vitara(parts of it), modded bullet and what not. Then at Hebbal we met up with psycho and the rest of the gang, 25 cars was the car count at hebbal and close to 40 members.
Then came a Skoda RS. Whoa. 300bhp . with a bigger turbo, intercooler, carbonio intake, eibach suspension and tarox 10piston brake calipers in the front.
Rudra and me were talking it fairly easy. We were doing 140-160 in stretches. The petesified Elantra(tadus), the RS and Mcl took off. These guys were doing 200kmph on the straights. Was awesome to hear these cars take off. Then all would slow down at the bad sections of road. And whoosh goes the safari dicor whistling away.
We reached the base of nandi hills and waited for everyone to come. After that began the climb up.
contd. in part2.
ps: I didnt have a cam although we have loads and loads of pics and videos.

The road is now 6 lanes through out with 2 sections off railroad crossing still ongoing.
Also the cars which were doing those speeds had some serious machinery. Example the RS was running ventiltaed discs with 10 piston calipers in the front and ventilated discs at the rear as well. It also had strengthened suspension and goodyear eagle F1 tyres.
The petes Elantra has ABS, Michelin's and a very good driver. None of these cars were running higher psi tyres for higher speed. almost all these cars had 50profile rubber with atleast 195mm thickness.
Agreed it may not be safe but noone took any unwanted risks.

Biggest turn around in Bangalore. All these cars belong to TBHP team.
Youngest member. Slightly mood off with all those loud funny noise from cars.
Group. Few are missing cause they were busy tuning their cars for return...Wolf was one of them.
Stuart lil. Feeling sleepy after tightning his almost falling out wheel bolts.
Vidyut is curious to see how tadu is opening warm beer bottle.
For Joz's collection. Actually never mind Joz, I'll give you that big image.
Climate was nice after the rain. We could really see pretty far.

Airbags deployed, no rear glass and side glass, no lights, stuck in 4wd and no Power Steering still was doing 2nd gear 4wheel spins with the V6 engine. hats off to Memo for being able to drive her.
