I dint miss her in the start cos I was too sleepy but once we hit the GQ I saw the cars flying by and missed her then again at the ghats hence the drive down I made sure i drove the other suzuki, vikram's. It showed me a good time though. Next one definitely bring my car.
It is just taht for these long drives too manby cars and too few drivers makes it boring. There was no way I would hve done this entire trip alone. So now that Vikram has gotten his turn next is mine

I was looking forward to riding Tarul's R15 in the ghats. Too bad he couldn't make it. Tarul, thats a brilliant bike you got there, we should meet up and ride upto Nandi Hills soon.

When you post the group pics, please name the members so that others could recognize them.
I initially thought of asking all the members to come up on the stage and introduce themselves. I has asked the hotel guys to get the mic ready too but most members thought it was too lame. I think this is the first time this has happened too in my experience. When I went down to the kitchen to see if things were in place I assumed everyone would start the intro session.

the bottom line: realised i shouldn keep the RS in stock condition , should go in for atleast the first stage ecm remap.
That RS was fun to watch and quick. Siddartha, you should join us for the drives we do every weekend. It was nice to see some quick driving from you to give company to those elantra's.

Rahul missed out on the intro bit as he was being harassed by everyone to get better service. poor fellow started hallucinating and dint even know where his camera was.
Oy! The manager called me the previous evening saying they had no stock of beer except for KF super strong anywhere around Yelagiri for a few days now. Since I was out with family and coulnd't get out, I called up Karthik and asked him to pick up a few beers the previous night.

I wasn't hallucinating. I know I lost my specs at the last drive we had to Tumkur but I ain't that blind. These guys hid my camera and started playing pranks. Got all worried because I have been losing too many things in the last couple of months. I knew someone was at it, so left to organize other stuff, by the time I got back there it was lying on the table and all these guys asking me if that was my camera and that it had been there forever now.

No words to describe Rahul's commitment, efficiency and meticulous attention to detail... Captain, you simply ROCK!

Three cheers for you.

Default Drive Video



And thanks to Pavan/Memo in the Turbo SX4 and Siddartha in the vRS for making the video interesting.

Again, the audio had to be muted out by Judas Priest, too many "encouraging" remarks about other cars. If any escaped despite the loud admonitions of Judas Priest, my apologies.

Yes, thanks to Pavan, Memo, Siddhartha, brraj for making the drive interesting and fun. We definitely missed the likes of binz, iceman91, v1p3r, wolf who would have made it more interesting.

Guilty as charged. My apologies as I was doing most of the talking .

Just finished watching the video, tadu thanks a ton for taking the troubles to edit and upload such large videos .

This drive was more fun than the previous yelagiri drives because of skoda RS and turbo SX4.

I suggest you pickup RdKarthik ecu as there are many options like mileage mode, power mode and stock mode. As you told me your RS gave 5kmpl in the yelagiri drive this is the best option. Get power or mileage by just changing the modes.

Thanks rahul for organising a fun meet.
