I see a lot more Nano's in Chennai. Yesterday had been to a marriage and saw a Nano zip up a steep gradient to the portico of the marriage hall, just watched to see how it would go up, it went up without breaking into a sweat. Anyone taken it up to Tirumala from Tirupati. May be ACI should take it's Nano up to Mahabaleshwar and give us an idea how the Nano behaves on steep gradients.Durango Dude2009-12-22 08:40:37
