My (L)ove

Good afternoon everyone. I think this may be the last article for 2008.

Well, I admit that I am quite lazy to write about the trip to KL. Yet, I will tell you next year. Alright, we start from car. As you know I am a car lover. A lot. Especially Lamborghini.


I guess you know what I am going to share...


Last Monday, for the 1st time, I drove a car. Sort of.
I was driving a Kancil or I called it as SLK - Small Little Kancil. A 660 cc car. To be honest, that car I think is one of the worst car every made.


Yes, she is so light yet underpower.

I atteneded the practical lesson with 2 other students. One of them was Kumaresan, my classmate. Another one I don't know who was him. That's not the main point.


If you minus the engine coughing and stop time, the rest of the driving lesson was quite nice. I was doing quite well on the track. Let me give you some statistics. Top speed 30km/h, top gear 3rd gear, max rev up to 3000.


My first driving lesson was quite nice although I really don't understand what the teacher was saying. About the car, it was very very basic. There is not much luxury items. What I can describe the SLK is this is really not a good car to drive. It is too light, underpowered, the backseat is very cramped, the suspension is as worse as my dad 12-year-old Saga. For now, I am waiting for my Lembu License.


I have some advices for those who are going to buy a Kancil. If you want to get a Kancil as your 1st car, You should go to the 2nd-hand car dealership there to look for some better cars, i.e., Proton Saga, Honda City or maybe a Datsun 120Y.


P/S : Please share your driving experience here. Thanks !

On the road or on the track?

10 more hours i'll be going for another lap on the road.

I just hope there is no other traffic on the road during test day, they are making me nervous+mad.

And, no traffic jam please!

but not 660 one
is it ok?

-JoE.CoM- said...

I not sure ...

I only drove the kancil once ..
It is a very very basic car, which malaysian called it.


I think as long as you got go for service constantly, I don't think it will be a big trouble for you.

the 660 refers to the engine cc ??
