That Getz looked Terrible.

And to talk about 4 cylinder (Ferrari) City; well it was LOUD.

Pics from my side pending. Will post that tomorrow night when I am back to Pune. I am travelling today and tomorrow.

And well, I won't be posting Dostana pics; dont want infractions on my name . If anyone wants it, will mail it.

@Sprucegoose : Yup!! that was loud. Did'nt realise a small tiny thing underneath your car could could make so much noise. Ohh!! BTW it was'nt until me & DocG realised while trailing your car that the small tiny thing was the exhaust.

I'm guessing there were only 2 guys in that Getz. Heard one of them askin the cops " Firebridage kab ayega", at the same time overheard another cop mumering to himself " Dame! It does'nt rain where it's suppose to rain". I guess that was not funny owing to the fact the getz owner moolah was up in flames.
I've attached the pics of the Getz inferno.

@UM, nice pics mate!!

Eagerly lookin forward for pics from your end. As for DOSTANA pics, that was the highlight of the whole meet..

haha, well the car sounded good only in the tunnels, it was a bit loud but not too bad. I think goose learned some very valuable lessons from yesterday's meet, such as avoiding potholes and his new love for DocG a.k.a. DocBanned

I do like what goose has done with his car and will be a great car in the near future, also thanks for driving !!

Aquaplaned?!!! How? Old tyres, under inflated tyres or sudden braking at high speed on wet roads?

Nah, completely fine tyres with 30psi in each, at speeds between 80-100 kph with no braking or steering. Could feel the steering become completely weightless and the front of the car almost drifting into the next lane a couple of times. Rains were VERY VERY heavy for a small stretch of about 8-10 kms.

The rain was really heavy for about 5mins, and what you explained, steering become completely weightless, i felt that too when the car went over 2 large puddles of water. Luckily i didn't drift to the next lane .

but surprisingly no-one slowed down. All the cars around kept doing 100/110+. good that heavy shower ended quickly.

UM

Scary stuff, thank god you didn't have to brake at that moment. Anyways, post a detailed write up and if you can tag the pics... i just know you, satan, goose and paras outta the bunch. I presume it's Unique Mods squatting by the car to change his tyre. And the rest?
