I take strong offense to call the DICOR - Tata Supari - It beats the Baleno by all standards.. and takes the bad roads with a smile. Lets drag and we'll know..but I will select the terrain!

We can argue for days, can't we?
Honda or Harley?
Ford or GM?
BMW or Benz?
This is an auto forum and we're emotional about our chosen vehicles no matter what contraption it may be.

Actually it sounds cool - like you were some dada/bhai from the Bombay underworld.

@vikram, not busy or anything - just not in town during weekends. Do ping me if you guys plan an improptu meet on weekdays.

Am actually doing quite some dragging on 2-lane roads in Kerala on the Swift. And it is fully diesel country there - mostly Skodas, Mercs, Innovas, Fords, Hyundais etc.

BTW, those 2-lane roads are supposedly National Highway, which is just .

ranjit, I wish there was something like a season ticket for overnight trains also. But, the online reservation facility sure has made life easy.

Will surely contact you guys during the weekends I am in town.

Wow !!! sounds exciting Arka. I hope the participants would also split the petrol expenses otherwise it is going to burn a huge hole in your pocket.

ex670c, congratulations on your new purchase. Wish I could join you for this OTR drive. I will be doing something exciting enough on the same day though - driving a colleague's Fiesta 1.6 from Pune to Bengaluru while you guys enjoy the Nissan.
