Default The Indica Mania

Guys.. ihv got a M800 (carb type) and a WagonR lxi(6months old)... and its been 3 yrs since ive been driving.... one of the most irritating experience on road has been with those Diesel run Indicas.... i donno why the ppl who drive it run it so hard as if its a racing car.... ive have heard of Indica's poor pickup.. but when i see Indica diesel taking off from signals.. it makes me think whether my petrol wagonR has even poor pickup than a diesel Taxi like Indica... i donno whether its the power of the car.. or whether somebody who sits in its driver's seat suddenly becomes overexcited.. or what... or is it frustration.... does anyone have a similar kinda experience with this car..???

Yes, i've seen this mainly with Indica Ds and Qualiss' (mainly yellow plates).

The other day on the NH17, a Qualis guy was irritating the hell out of me. My rule when doing a long distance is, keep the car below 120kmph and try not to indulge in any sort of racing.

I was happily doin around 100-110kmph and this guy come behind me and starts honking, then slows down, lets me take a lead of about a 100 meters and then plays catch up.
He tried this for almost half n hr, but then he realised that no matter what he did, i wasn't gonna change my driving style for him.

I wish to meet him on the same road, when i'm alone in the car with AC/DC playing. Why the Qualis, let him get a Mondeo and i'll still get away from him.
