i thought you guys were great friends - so thought of letting him know about it. thats it. yes, TBHP doesnt support street racing.

thats why! i thought all of you guys were there to burn some rubber a.k.a. FUN (but not necessarily street racing). but video "nahi liya" - :(

even i am not good at organizing meets - an example -> the september meet which is eating up my head - because i *****d up while making the bookings and i really hate when i do that.

Its never going to work out in the current scenario.
Lot of these meets will go futile. The very essense of a meet of Team-bhp individuals is to satiate a part of the automotive love life. For the other ones, I guess all of us have other circles. Then a car meet will have car talk, but soon talk will be over and one has to walk the talk! How? Where? We have not figured that out.

People sitting in their own cars and driving around town. Thats so much for interaction. Then there is the difference in the rides and the difference in the amount of risk each individuals judgement is going to allow, then ofcourse the random factors which will differentially affect a few individuals and leave some largely unaffected. Thus, organisation is going to require far more than co-ordinating the time and agenda. We need a playground. Then, we need comparable equipment and enough lead time to familiarize with those equipments.Probably then, we can actually judge abilities. And I am talking gibberish (but I never mentioned "street").

lol....I was glad to meet ya'all though - realized that the endcan in my car doesn't really get the top speed any higher, just increases the mid-range pick-up -THAT'S ALL !!! Good to meet ya'll

@ace959: was good meeting you too.
But, not too sure about the end-can increasing mid-range pickup. How does this happen?

Exactly the reason why we should refrain from using Drag, Race etc.

If its a dirt track its all the more better. However have to check if there is a possibility of rally group outsiders using this track maybe after paying some entry fees. Driving is like any other game one plays. One needs practicing to identify the limits. So one time participation will not do any good. It needs to happen frequently before the true potential of an individual may come to the fore.

hahaha, yeah well, that's what I was told...I'm not that literate to understand the theory bit of it, but I did feel the increase in the pickup between 2000 - 6000 rpm....but i don't think top end speed has gone up much
