we all increase the psi by 2-3 whenever we do highways
huh - 3 psi increase on highway! i thought a marginal 1 psi would suffice. Won't increasing the air pressure at 2-3 psi above the stock pressure ruin the handling(which is important on a long drive) and also the ride(which will be too bumpy)?

Again what will happen when the tyre heats up at high speeds. Any danger of it bursting bcoz of the increased air pressure.

If you ever venture into water when it's flooded make sure you never let the accelerator idle and allow water to get in through the exhaust. If by any chance you are close to letting the engine die, keep cracking with the vehicle in gear to get out of the water asap. If water get's into the engine bay, woe to you, it's gonna take a lot of time and money to get things back in shape. The best course if to keep off any kind of flooded water unless you are doubly sure the water below one feet and there are no pot holes.

It calls for good clutch-accelerator co-ordination. Err for a second and the water will kill your car. One of my friend spent Rs. 92000 on his Corsa, whose engine went kaput while wading through water.
