Thank you for the invite, and will do even if I dont know when ! That was when I was in a tearing hurry - we did the Kolhapur - Bangalore stretch non-stop in about 8 hours or just slightly over. Wife claims she never saw anything enroute, since she had her eyes clenched shut all the time


Cheers

Approx. 260 km/h - Mitsubishi GTO Twin Turbo with a few mods that I used to own in New Zealand. Car was still accelerating but I was running out of roads and testosterone.

Think you need to check the speedo on the Accent as well - I havent taken mine beyond 150 because I prefer safe to sorry, but my uncle did push his to the limit once and it showed 170.

HAHAHA, if that is the case then add 15kmph to everybody's top speed.

I can believe that, one Ikon in Hubli did 210 on the speedo, only problem is, it's true speed is not even 170kmph.

My uncle has a diesel Lancer and he claims he's done 170kmph on it. That's speedo error for you.

Snap out of it fella!!
