Default Hi

Great to be a part of this Awesome forum, have been surfing it for along time. I drive a 2000 Baleno with 72000 K. The machine is quite a hottie with a K&N Insert, Free flow Exhaust, Competition flywheel and Main pulley (recent mods). Runs 6J OZs with 185/60 rubber and 5W50 fully synthetic Mobil1. Has given a Corolla,Lancer,Accent Tornado, OHC vtec/NHCvtec a run for their money. Have just changed the rims and rubber, vibrations due to the offset have been rectified but yet to go flat out. Could achieve 187kmph before the pulley and tyre mods, aim to be at 200kmph shortly

just a word of caution... please drive safe.... buckle up.... our indian roads are not meant for such high speeds... you might end up killing or maiming yourself or some other inncocent person... drive responsibly and leave the racing to the tracks... no offence meant...

Just got confirmed reports that a silver SE esteem was seen doing 170+ on its way back to chennai from bangalore a couple of days back.. The car was running OZ stickers on one side and BBS on the other and had an awesome exhaust note .. Any clue whose it is ?? .. Kidding no offense ..


Powerbaleno , welcome to tbhp .. Good to see the number of baleno owners increasing day by day .. Do post the pics of ur ride in the gallery .. Lightened flywheel eh ?? Now how about some crazy cams for the car .. Then it surely will fly ..
