Hmmm... yeah could be... after all its as likely as your zen having a speedo error.

Anyways, bottomline, my zen crosses 145 kmph on its speedo on 145/70 r13 wheels. Period. If ur zen didnt cross 120 on its speedo, too bad for you... but thats somethin u havta live with.

Dont wanna get into an argument with you again...

Maruti cars have large speedos varying from model to model.

Amitoj do you mind telling us you car model..please

P.S Also depends on incline of the road..

Here is a pic of the blue car...



Also touched 200Kmph in my E220 (W124) while on the way to Surat. No pic to prove that, though. Here is a pic of the car anyway.

Touched 180Km at Bandra Reclamation and 190 KM (Expressway) in my old 8v SOHC Esteem(Helped with a shot of NOS).

Have yet to see the potential of my new Twin Cam Engine. Guess will find out in a week or two once I open her up.

I was wondering, does it have to be cars speed...? I mean, someone mentioned Jet ski some time back, so I was ondering, does free-fall qualify?? If so:
I hit 294m/s, which makes me go at a phenomenal rate... however, I haven't counted in air-resistance and all, but I was doing about 170-something when I was falling...
In case you're wondering, I went Sky-Diving at Jakkur Airport... the digital meter indicated 170-something mph... and a 34 second free-fall... so, that would be pretty much the top speed that I've hit... hehe...
Does this qualify??

Touched 190 KPH with Full load 5 Passengers with A.C on on Express Way, and touched only once 210 Kph with A.C off , i didnt dared again to cross 200 kph again!, You know guys how does it feel above 200 Kph, Well ur eyes are only on the road seeing as far as you can while both ur hands are stiffed on steering and praying to god that vehicle on middle lane should not come in ur way to overtake some one else,
A note to Tbhpians always check the conditions of ur tyres ,rims,wheel balance and air pressure, before u check ur vehicles top speed, it could prove fatal if not taken care!
