thats b'coz posts on "shifting gears" - that is the sub forum for general discussions dont get counted as actual posts....and most of my posts are in The T-Bhp meet section which is under "Shifting Gears". Its only my posts on 'how to drift a fwd car' that are counted as my actual posts

fair and square....i'm comfy enough as it is posting in this section

Cheers,

J

Hey nitrous, is the movie worth the time spent ? Asking because i got the DVD and we never went to more than 30 mins into the movie, even after 3-4 attempts. Did not hold our interest like the 1st one did. As is the story with most sequels, the 1st one was awesome, the 2nd was so-so and the 3rd is well ...

That sure does it to me and most others.

PS: The movie hasn't released yet!! Damn, these misinforming Satyam cinemas!

Saw the movie listing under Sathyam - "coming soon". Maybe you are right. The big screen would be better.

Goa was great. Actually it was awesome. My rating of Kerala as paradise has been shaken - I would not mind spending retirement at Goa. Driving down would have been hectic - so flew down.
The last time I was there was from college in '91 and all we did was go to beach-get drunk-swim, repeat the pattern at next beach.

But this time, we rented a bike and rode out to different parts (around 200kms in 2 days is not bad). A super place. The Marriott was bang on the beach, with a great view and great food. Had real fun. Already thinking of an encore soon. Pity I missed the Goa tbhp meet.

A few weeks ago, we had been to the Woodlands drive-in restaurant for an early Sunday morning breakfast. Lots of cars to ogle at, though the food is nothing to talk about.

Just wondering whether it would be a nice place for our meets - has shade, lots of room to park and checkout our rides, food etc. Though I don't think we can revv cars or do wheelspins or hi-volume ICE checkouts like we do on the beach. But then the beach gets real hot in the mornings and no shade anywhere.

woodlands drive-in is the place to be if its an early Sunday morning.....i meet up with the RD fella's there quite often and have come across some awesome machines.....

But how many of our members would wanna wake up and be there even at 8 a.m ?

"Sunday morning ? Plzzzzzzzz guys" - this would be the response from quite a few of the members here

ahem...Aditya, how much did you say ur car accelerated to in 2nd gear ?



Cheers
