Don't you see the 'missing fan' in from there as well .

The answer to the front grill lies here:

PS: who was that person saying that the 'Wagon R' fan is less efficient?

@ khan Saab: I see in the video that you tried couple of time but couldn`t make it. then you make 2 people sit behind so that the rear tyre get enough traction. Still you coundn`t make it.

I may suggest if there is any way to increase weight in the front part of the car in order to get enought traction just like you tried doing it by adding 2 people behind. I think the car its light at the front. Something like they do in drag racing in the US. they put metal plates or rings just to put more weight on the rear tyre so that it get enough traction when they pull off. If we can do something like this at the front then possibly we can pull it off. I know i am talking in regards to this case only and this is not viable on other situations. I may sound stupid with this but this is what i fealt.

As said by other, diagonally is also an option but i guess this is unfinished business. You need to find a way to conquer it the way you wanted it to. And you rightly pointed it out, going with momentum will certaily damage the car.

Best of luck.
