Default Civic vs Baleno

Driving along the ring road at 2am, we see a silver Civic go past us on the other side. Aveek had it pegged as a '95 model. Hung a quick U, and went alongside it, and took off. Hit the limiter in each gear, and pulled away from him like hell. Then, at the turn-off to KR Puram, slowed down, and waited for him. But wait! He goes the other way, all cylinders blazing. So I turn and floor it. Managed to keep up with him throughout, hitting the limiter in 3rd and beyond.

Slowed down at the 24-hr gas station at KR Puram. Got out and checked the car out. Turned out to be a '96 Civic (close, Aveek!!). MH (Mumbai) registered. Silver, with Xenons. The dude said it had headers, and puts out over 110 bhp. 16+ quarter mile.

I bet he never saw 96 horses run so fast in his life!!

cheers

hey dude read my post...car is quick did not compare it to your baleno...also its 11 years old running carb....weighs a lot more than the baleno and is more in bhp than the baleno.
