Excellent work ghostrider! I cannot read all this in one shot. Too much information to digest. I'll keep it as a reference.

GR, ahem...you forgot to mention who proof-read it all!!!

Guys, GR's initiative is brilliant. All this information is 100% authentic, and I forwarded it to a few experts, who came back with favourable reviews. Good one, dude.

ps. Please DO NOT try this on public roads.

In the initial post you sounded like you wrote it, research or not. Isn't most of it cut-n-paste? When you do that, it is called compilation, as a copywriter you should have known that. I wouldn't have commented if it was all in your own words. BTW, I did compliment on your compilation. Pretty good work.

I think our concern is understandable in the post-pulsarian era...

To samurai: I guess you are right. It does sound as if I wrote it all on my own...my bad! . I did edit a lot of this stuff to try make it as close to the indian senario as possible. But thanks for pointing it out, i'll be more careful the next time the next time!

To v1p3r & mclaren1885: Thanks a heap akshay n rahul. You guys have been really helpful! There were so many places where some of the lesser known drifts were explained very complicatedly and was very confusing, which made me doubt the sources. You guys did great!!! If I was Salma Hayek you guys would be having a real good time right now to show you my appriciation!! (mods: if you think the last line was s tad inappropriate please take the liberty to delete it, I just could'nt help saying it!)

godspeed.

Salma Hayek and two heroes, now that reminds me of the movie Wild Wild West... Yeah, she appreciated them a lot at the end for helping her, it went something like "Boys, meet my Husband..."
