[quote=suren181;1413391]Wow, to think of it I was in 2 minds on whether to skip this meet. Now I thank God for not having done that.

My vote for the best driver in this meet goes to our very own zen91. Am sure the gentlemen following through with the detailed reports will have a lot to say about him, his driving and his car.

Suren Bhai, I am humbled by your statement..

Great meet/drive guys----enjoyed to the hilt. Brajesh of course was consistently the fastest. Hillram was driving sedately most of the time, like me.

Special credit to Ravv's zooming by everyone on his GTX with that sporty sound---man, what a growl that was!! I am curious to know of the F.E. he got.

Credit is also due to RR for driving a Santro that fast---never knew a Santro could be driven that fast----I had to increase my speed upto 145 on some stretches to keep ahead---as a result my F.E. dropped to 14.1 for the entire trip (with AC on 95%).

Guys wonderful drive.
@Venu..Rather i was driving cautiously after the initial burst,which saw my Cedia touch 170 km speed and revs as high as 6500,finally redlining the Yellow Kamikaze.
Another highlight of my drive,was the clear feel of the ABS kick in,when i was braking at 120 odd speeds and i could feel the difference of all the 4 disc coming to a dancing act of braking.
At one point,my wife reminded me that there were 2 more passengers in the car (my son and herself) and i slowed down.While returning..we had an extra guest,Mihiran,so I had to further sedate my driving to caution.This well sedated driving did not tire me a bit,inspite of the fact that we drove 300kms odd in few hrs.
In the end..a fantastic meet.
I touched 5000 km and 1 year of ownership of Cedia and will soon post a report on this.
Next in line should be my vociferous request since last 2 months..An RC Aircraft/Car meet.

A good drive meet after I missed the Bidar drive meet..infact I was so eager to do this drive meet that I ended up reaching the meeting place at 7.20 am instead of 8 am.

Even my friend PK came in early at 7.30am and were chatting when the yellow beast rolled over behind my car and PK was like...WOW..what a car.Hillram's car was the highlight and drew the maximum attention at the destination too.

Ravvs..what a growl..I mean your car's. Every time the GTX overtook me, by the sound the engine made, I was sure Ravvs would have made some modifications to the engine or the exhaust till such time I was confirmed by Ravvs, that the car is stock..I guess this is the best growl that I have heard till date in an Indian stock car.

In the end I guess we could not conclude on the destination for the next drive meet.

Avi Bhai, the sandwiches were very good and much needed..I guess I had the maximum numbers.

Default N'Sagar Drive



Guys,

Fristly I missed this wonderful drive due to personal commitments(with Wifey!!)
Whose Fiesta is that? It is high time I sync with group fast!!

The best car in the photographs was Avi's red Viva....as always, followed by our model Cedia!!
Suren's red Team Mars Verna cannot be left behind too. I saw Suren's Verna last week with our pal Suren zooming on the Bowenpally-Balanager stretch..superb sight!!
Himanshu, one of your pics the bottle is not in the right place....

the 4 guys in black t shirts forming a square are trying to outdo each other in the sine curves...the belly's I mean!!

Our pals juniors are seeming to have the max fun in our meets!

Good to see KKr2K2..phew-one of the most complex handle names! Rajesh bhai as always seems glamboy!
Mitesh, our drive partner thrills!

Brajesh bhai, nice to see your super ride...cool!Vnabi and others...i missed it ALL!

Great show guys.....CUG ROCKS!

It seems that you guys had lot of fun.
Second last pic in the post no 294,
four guys on grass, but why are they eating grass?

Please someone post relative information about Nagarjunsagar dam.
The dam pic reminded me the ujani dam near indapur, 60 km away from baramati toward solapur. ditto same.

Hi srikanth,
I could only make it to the meet rendezvous point. I did not continue to NSD.

lol, the confusion continues(that despite it being only 6 characters)!!!!

To clear the confusion, here is the story behind the id:

Quote:
My initial is K. ; Last name starts with R. ; when i was a kid, i had a different name which started with K; 2k2 is 2002 - the year in which i registered an email add.

so its like this

K Keerthan Reddy 2002 ==> kkr2k2.
