Hi Shan,
The 5th gear is a Zens, and the Final drive is of a zen too. So check it up.

Cheers

I did 175 kmph in my Corsa on Pune Mumbai expressway ..... the best part is that car was runnng on AutoLPG ....
Car could have gone still little bit more but i was hesitant as the car was fully loaded and i didnt want to strain the car ....

I did 101 kmph in my baby 800 on the express way. Hey I think this speed is enough for an 800cc engine right? Coz after that the steering shakes like anything so it feels very risky to go further.

i do a 100 kmph everyday in my M800 while going back from work on the Palm Beach Road in New Mumbai. great road and even if my car crosses 100 kmph it does not wobble thanks to my hubby who takes care of my car like our baby, getting the balancing and wheel alignment done every three months just to keep in check the wobbling as well as the qualtiy of the new radials bought abt a year back.

My personal best was a 170 kmph in a 2004, 3.4 Litre, V6 Pontiac back in the US.Would have pushed more but friends had warned me that I'd get arrested if I reach 100mph so had to unwillingly back off as the car had a lot left(it was a 3.4 ltr V6 after all). The Pontiac felt completely safe at those speeds.
cheers,
