That's me squatting, but 90% of the tire changing hardwork was done by Pranav.

Thanks

I Missed the meet as had my college on Sunday.. So much wanted to be a prt .. Looking forward to the next Mumbai meet..

Off Topic : What you just mentioned seems like Aquaplaning : very dangerous : plus the speeds at which you experienced it =
Is there a driving method or improvisation that might counter aquaplaning ? probably reducing the speed ?

Yeah, it was aquaplaning, at around 80-110 kph. The fact that the road was straight helped. Apart from that, keeping the tyres in good condition and knowing when to keep calm. The car will come back to you, until then, don't do any sudden movements. And don't brake when the tyres do not have any grip.

PranavtWas your car aquaplaning as soon as you enter the wet patch or it was for the whole wet patch,it may have happended due to sudden change in temperature of road surface.Or it may have happended due to uneven road surface the water gets accumalated on some patches and you drove over it.

Heard thAT A FOUR cylinder sounded like a ferrari...Ummm. just for the record. No four cylinder can sound like a supercar. Loud is one thing, trucks are loud too. Just for a simple clarification here's two car links one's a full blown honda civic and the other a ferrari. Use headphones, my advice.



thats a mugen civc type rr


thats the ferrari

No, only when I went over 2 huge puddles. The dark tints + low visibility + incredibly heavy rain meant that I could only see outlines of whatever lied ahead. Forget trying to even see the actual road.

Yeah, Punjabi food at Toni's makes the steering feel weightless and makes the car drift into neighboring lanes. I swear, I did not pour a lot of gravy into the throttle body.
