As normally these small petrol vehicles do more in 4th... so if that was fifth!.. fourth would be 180????
5th gear of course...in 4th above 155 ECM cuts my engine off...just like rev limiter to prevent engine damage...i wonder remapping ECM will help or not...if u do have solution plz share it...by the way what gadget should i use to calculate real speed ??

The stock tyres suck for the Zen but With some good rubber it can do some really astonishing top speeds and handles decent too for such a light car, My younger bro runs a set of 195/45 14R Hankooks, he says its rock solid on Straightline at even 150 + KMPH.
The braking though is not Adequete at all.

One of my other friends has a VTEC Engine in a Zen which I feel is sheer madness but That car is a short Dragstrip Killer for a Indian Street Car.
Though Handling the power is difficult on full throttle but then it holds the road pretty well upto 160, Above which I did not feel like pushing it, as it is indeed risking my life.
