Jitu i saw a video of Ishaan drive your car, there was a fellow on the left front of the car and he had to cut right and overtake, the torque steer was such that he infact had to counter steer towards the biker as the car was pulling to the right.
The videos were awesome. Found some videos of your car on youtoube aswell on the dyno.

Man you have a beast of a machine there. I wish to drive it once.

Congrats on the build and may this determination and passion give more than what you have planned ahead.

@GTO completely agree with your comments the dyno chart just shows these insane figures for an OHC but to feel them you need to drive the car, just looking at Ishaan's videos gave an idea of how scary the ride might be.

Nope, no one can. That's because Ishan himself has not posted them on youtube yet!

Look forward to a PM soon, real soon! And that's for all those of you who've PM'ed me.

I have had the pleasure of being seated as passenger in this beast!
The sheer power this thing generates is absolutely orgasmic!
An adrenaline rush which has never been experienced before!

Ohh and before I forget, it was running at only 10psi boost at the time!

Congratulations on the achievement Jitu!

This goal could not have been achieved without immense
"Passion, Patience and Persiverance"

I can see the smile on your face Jitu, hats off!!

We had a camera mount and video cam ready today, but an unexpected failure of the power-steering pump left Jitu not wanting to deal with wrestling wild torque steer with no-PS. It sounded too unsafe, so hopefully we will get a chance to do it some other day.
