Next time it will be bone breaking if you don't land up on such mega drives.

Amen!

DF & threepio thanks a ton once again for you know what ;-) .

So now that a long drive is done, how many of you would want to get onto a race track with your cars and improve your driving skills and have some more fun? Remember, it will not be a race and almost any car can be taken to the track (though our Bhai from Dubai might want to drive only one way, STRAIGHT. No turning in, or apexing, NOTHING. Thanks to a certain monster truck). It will not only help you know the limits of your car but will also enable you to handle panic situations on public roads better if one understands the limitations of their cars. So the cat is out of the bag

@Tadu....great video, as usual.

Dialogues I likes

Tadu: Da, put the seatbelt at the back. You know, you may land up at the dashboard, and we don't have enough airbags on the dash
The poor soul at the back seat (Ben?): a feeble "Mmmmmm"

@Mcl: You Baleno handles like a dream. Looks like Tadu has to cut corners where you were able to stick to the normal driving lane. Awesome!!

Superb drive there guys. But no point complaining, i was 100% sure i won't make it.

And great job on the video by Tadu and Jomz, unlike the Nandi hill drive where a certain someone is still editing the video!

Man.. This was the seccond video I ever shot..
But i think it is tadu's editing which made the difference.. I remember one instance when the camera was still in rec and pointed downwards..

Those scenes are missing... Tadu you being humble??

This is the first time that I have heard that the tyres contribute so significantly to straight line stability. Dont take it in the negative but remember that there are many more contributors to have a car handle better in both straight line and being able to handle greater G's around corners but tyres do tend to play a role but to a point only. I do hope that no one expects just the tyres added on to a car will make it handle that way.
