I just stumbled upon a thread from 'tsk' saying that his safari was powersliding all the time because of some brake problem. so i guess it should be possible without a roll bakiya

Hang on guys. If I decide to power slide with my Tall Boy Wagon R no one stands a chance. Considering that the Safari guys are pretty much set on trying to prove a point I dont want to disappoint them.

OK so we have a contest - The Powerslide contest between:

1. The TS DICOR
2. The Tall boy
and
3. Bakiya's ford

By default 2 and 3 are ruled out as they are FWD cars, Hence the winner is #1.

@ Ramwest : Except for Alloys and K&N mine is as stock as it could get, which is the reason I could power slide or should I say power roll better

Maybe the Scorpio guy just wanted to check the under-belly of his car for any dents/bruises in an unconventional way.

I am sure the Dicor-boys don't want their beast to rest on its side a la the Scorpio in the video.

Looks like we were far better off having a few cars considering the amount of flaming happening in the Yelagiri Meet thread about who was faster and who was not, add to it the confusion about newbies driving well not well etc. Hopefully there were not many who were cursing me of holding them back etc. during our drive.
