A scorpio like that licked my vtec on stock tyres on an uphill curve once - poor traction and poor torque killed the vtec

hey Gamer1, thanx for that

the Scorpio is a beautiful vehicle, and the disadvantage of its extra sensetive power streeing can be used as a biiiig advantage in the city! u jus need someone to drive it with some tuff gutz!

herez a pic of my scorpio's stock tyres with 6" rims which i got painted to match with the body color... somehow i jus luv the rims in that color, thou , have been getting lottsa mixed responses...some saying its juz awesome, and some saying it jus doesnt look any good but whateva...i luv it that way!



and this is one of the mods i was planning to do...

painting the side claddings to something sporty...so jus tried out this RED as a sample on this one cladding, didnt impress me, so took it out..! guyz from HYD , if u wanna do body modifications to ur scorpios or other vehicles, and if u have an idea in mind, let me know, i have a mechanic whoz a genious with bodyworx.... and interiors too.. i got my scorpio's centre seat moved back a feet! and now its like the centre row ppl sitting like maharajaz!

herez the experiment pic



my tyres will go another 5,000 kms good! so afta dat will replace them off....i.e in a months time

No Ajmat,
This guy is a Doctor(doesn't look like one though).. Don't really think he is even practicing.. He's always seen around Cochin in his armada(but fully moded).. It sure makes people notice..
He got the wheels(dont know the name and size) imported from US..
Next time we see him, we'l surely ask him for a complete description bout his cars.. Get some pics clicked.. We'l ask him to join.. But donno if he is the internet kind of a guy....
One strange person.... With one crazy machine.....

He's got a c class among other mercs.. He says, its so tough to take it around town so prefers to use his armada..

My MD too has a big fleet of mercs including 2 S-Class... Also has lots of vintage machines.. Pajeros, elantra, corolla, camry, santro etc etc.... Yup he's rich, really really rich....

_And here I am, cant even buy an RD_

Hey insanedevil,
The car seems to look good somehow with those wheels,but try and get rid of the red calipers.They actually make the wheels look cheap.Otherwise the wheels are pretty nicely co-ordinated with the color.
And good thing you did'nt go ahead with that Red side claddings.Looked ugly.

Thanx a lot for the review XMachine! well , i sure didnt go ahead with the Red Colored Side Claddings...was just an experiment as to what color might suit it.

Secondly, about the Red Calipers, well i somehow find it very sporty, as in the sports cars abroad. so i thought as it wud make it a bit unique among the other cars here, will hang on to it for some time, unless u come up with a diff. color shade for it

thanx again!
