Default Top Speeds of Indian Rally Cars

Hi Guys!

Whats the top speed for a Group A Esteem (carb)?
What are the top speeds achieved by these cars on special stages?

Cheers!
Tom

Madan its fun to see the RSC's burning the non-existing roads during the K1000's. IMO they should be able to do those speeds.

Not a chance. Street car will be quicker.

Street car modded anyday. I'm saying in all probability stock street car would be quicker than an RSC car in a straight line. Rally welding and rollcages aren't light.

rsc car v/s stock esteem .

the rsc cars are completely stripped , a/c ,compressor , condensor, blower , door pads , rear power window motors , roof lining , rear seat , mats/carpeting , rear parcel shelf, etc , so all these things removed would probably compensate for the weight of the roll cage ,( give or take a coule of kgs ) , no alterations in the gear boxes are allowed , also the rsc cars are allowed to have their exhausts modded after the cat convertor, and also slight modifications are allowed on the carb , free flow air filters are allowed , so on a rsc car should have the same top end as a street esteem , atleast if not more.
