While driving back from Bombay to Bangalore in my Nexia i touched a top speed of 180KMPH (shown on speedometer) in more than one place.. But the car floats when u hit speeds in excess of 160KMPH(again as shown on speedometer). I can confidentally tell that the car could easily make 160KMPH. I felt that the car could do more.. But i lacked the courage to do it. I felt that the car needed a variable power assit steering to handle such speeds. I only car that over took me in the entire journey was a Skoda Octavia which effortlessly over took me when i was making speeds in excess of 160KMPH. I really loved the roads from Bombay to Bangalore.. I must agree Indian highways have improved a lot.

But, why would somebody modify a Carrera RS? I thought the beauty was in the simplicity of the concept.
Oh yeah, the 930. When I was in the used car showroom to check out the 911, there was a black turbo there. Asking price was $10K more, and in the time I was trying to decide (1 day), someone else bought the car. Have been kicking myself ever since.

The 944 was the first car I ever owned. Poor substitute for a 911 but 2 months into living in the US, I couldn't afford my dream car. The 84-86 Carrera was the only car I truly lusted after. My 84 was stock except for slight lowering, lower final drive and modified chip to allow more revs. The Gaurds red colour was good for another 10 mph .

The RS was modified, but in a good way. Plexiglass side and rear windows, thin glass front windscreen, 5-point harness, additional oil cooler etc.

Gears,
RedOne

Yeah, owned all of the cars/bikes when I lived in the US. Sold everyone of them when I moved back to India. Actually, I got the BMW to bring to India, but customs gave a tentative quote of 7.5 lakhs and I sold her as well.

Currently I have the City 1.5, RD and a 1990 Audi 100 2.2E

Gears,
RedOne.

Hit 175Kph on eastern express highway on my baleno with freeflow 3 years back at about 3pm, with 2 more friends in the car.

Then i have also hit 170kph on bandra highway on my baleno couple of years back at about 2am

Then again hit 170kph on my Vtec (When it was stock) couple of months back again on bandra highway again at early morning.

And as far as da fastest average speed goes, i maintained an average speed of 131kph on my baleno again, when i was driving from vileparle to marine drive at 4am through the S.V. roads(No highways). I reached the start of marine drive from parle which is about 24Kms, in 11mins. That was one heck of a drive, never driven faster!!
