Forgot to mention, Kito is very cute. But does Kito have anything to do with KITT?

@ Planet - Very good video. Tiesto rulez huh?!!
Razor was doing 160. And I saw Wim ahead of the Santro. What speeds was he doing?? Not taking Black Pearl in the equation.

razor was doing 160+ -> but before i was able to take a pic he had to slow down.

wim complained about wheel balancing issue - i guess he stuck to 140-160.

shuvc once touched 140 in 3rd gear - well thats what he said.

BP was driving unusually "slow" - could be because - his mother-in-law was in the car.

but we missed shuvd, toiingg, babhishek and 1100D. it would have been great if you guys were there.

but there is always next time - "next drive kaab?"

Yeah, we missed the Silver Bullet on this trip... in fact come to think of it, we would've missed it even if it was going to S'niketan

I need to get my wheels balanced pronto, the steering was going haywire above 130. I touched 160 a couple of times, but restricted myself to 130 otherwise. Quite frustrating!! The road is very very inviting...

I drove at a steady pace of 175-180 in 5th gear for quite some time and then saw there was nobody around, so slowed down and conserved fuel. what is the point in driving at speeds which only one more car in the group would be comfortable at ??

BP was being nice to us, and driving sedately so we could keep up

Shuvc did more than 140... I think he was talking 170+.

Video is really nice. Showed some of my colleagues also... they're highly impressed by the highway (like all of us were).
Good job planet bhai. I didn't realize you were taking videos for that long a time. No wonder etc was pissed at you

Just saw the video... finally!! Awesome work Planet. It's pretty obvious that a lot of work has gone into this, both while shooting as well as in post processing. Great Job!!

Oh, and a special thanks. Because of u, I got to see my new alloys in motion

Can you pls post the pics separately too... I really liked some of them.
