I think no one can beat my 175 kmph in an old heavy esteem producing only 50 BHP.(The Old Carburetter Version).
Now, isn't that also impossible ? The max you could push a stock esteem is 165 carb or MPFI unless you have a serious speedo error.

Tall claims for a fat car. Fat chance, i would say.

All the mods on the car were done after these two runs.

Hello Anna, Who you calling FAt?

1. Ford Ikon 1.3 Exi:

Mighty fast car for the performance specs ... I managed a 170 kph on the speedo ... Mumbai - Pune expressway ... there definitely could be speedo error kicking in here!

2. Mitsibushi Lancer GLXi

Another sporty car to drive ... 165 kph ... can do more I am sure ... again Mumbai - Pune expressway

I really don't care if you believe it or not.To be very honest,the car was bought second hand from 'sanjay agarwal' and it came with stock baleno wheels painted in white.Now ask yourself why a car would come with wheels painted in white?

I thought it had run a few rallys till i spoke to Sanjy uncle who said the car is bone stock AND I BELIEVE HIM.

Mods on the car were done in jan of this year.And that video was taken quite a few months before that.


The day you push your baleno on stock 165s is the day you will be able to believe those two videos.

Peace!

PS This (Proving my signature.....!!),would be a nice thread to go through and continue the discussion.

stock Wagon R VXi: a lil under 140 kmph on NH5.

my bike has no speedo on it, but when it did have remember seeing 120 on it.
nowadays my bike is either going much faster, or I am growing older.

Hey Binz. Dont get me wrong wasnt try to call you a liar.

I was thinking that they misunderstood your claim that it was stock. If you say it was stock when it hit that speed I believe you.

I did push mine on the Tbhp yelagiri drive to 145 on stock 165 skinny tyres and I could feel it had a lot lot more to go.. however I did not have the guts to push it any further on the puny tires.

cheers: cheers
