    ^^ Issue I had with Belkin car charger is that it takes lot of time to charge. Hence, few months back shifted to Samsung Car charger after reading positive reviews about the same. Boy-O-Boy, world of difference in charging speed. Its almost on par with wall charger. However, compared to Belkin, Samsung car charger is quiet bulky. Since I use it only during emergency , it serves the purpose.

    That is because the USB port always give an output of 0.5V, whereas dedicated mobile chargers would give out more. It is not the Belkin to blame. :)

    Guess you mean 0.5 amps. There is a fix for that. The USB port will have 4 contacts - +5V, -5V, data in and data out. If you connect data-in and data-out together, then the charging with the same Belkin charger is at least twice as fast.

    Damn those pedals cost 10K INR on 99RPM. Just 4.5k on ebay. Nice. But i wonder why its soo darn pricey... :O

    If you need a cheaper option, Sparco pedals are there. They cost 2k plus installation. I have them in my 90HP.

    I initially thought that these are just for show, but they do give a better feel while you depress them, they feel lighter.

    I guess you are talking about this Sparco Progetto Car RACING PEDAL SET

    I am wondering if one size fits all version or not? Also the dead pedal version is missing too :(

    Thanks for the suggestion mate.
