      Thanks a ton you all.

      Was sitting and digging through some Dragy Data from the Drag Race.

      0-160kmph times are quicker than a 1.5Cr (Ex-showroom) Porsche 911 Carrera RWD MT.

      If only the Octavia was a RWD or a AWD, we'd be toying around with much bigger cars. Just RWD would help us shave off 0.5s and AWD will shave off 1s off what we are currently clocking right now. The only limit we have right now is the traction we get off the line.

      Wow!! Those are some crazy numbers Rahul.. considering all the mods were clean installs (no 'cheer phad') it's commendable.
      All the best

      You currently have yoko ad08r. Do you think wider tyres in 18" would help?

      Wider tyres brings their own disadvantage. Higher rolling resistance. Will bog the car down in higher gears.

      Anyways, thinking of moving to 235/40/18, let's see. Not yet decided, lots of stuff need to be finalised still.

      True to find right balance with wider tyres you need lighter wheels.
      And I am pretty sure you are yet to finalise on alloys in 18" first more than your choice of tyre.
      Anyhow wish you good luck. Keep us updated.

      Ohh btw a lil OT but draggy is still available for sale from you guys?
