Cool INDIGO@170km/h(diesel)

Hi ,
The other day i was travelling to kamshet and i had taken the Mumbai-Pune Expressway
I was in my indigo (LS - diesel , 2004 model) , i alomost touched a whopping speed of 170 km/h ;

(yeh i know it shows '165' was a bit late in getting the snap)
its an TATA INDIGO diesel after all guys , every one does hi speeds in powerful cars , but getting everything out of an underpowered car is something .
I have done speeds of > 200 km/h , but this was unreal ...

WOW man that must have been hell for a drive.. There should be a team BHP Believe it or Not thread where speeds like this should be posted from stock cars. (I know what is your top speed thread exists but this id different)

Most roads are in decline(atleast in CHN), but I'm sure one can go down an Incline too

wow buddy, Thats some speed in an Indigo. But be careful and dont get tempted to do that again. Indigo at that speeds is not safe at all. the speedo needle looks like its gonna spin out of the meter

Headers, I think U own the 62bhp Indigo turbo (without Intercooler)
And Karan must be having the 70bhp TDI Indigo.

yeah Nitrous..but that should not mean upping the top end by some 20 odd kmph!!

The Indigo in stock is not suitable above 120 kmph..It becomes scary at 140 and well....

Intercoolers ..wow!! <GRIN>
