In chronological order ....

RX-135: 105 kmph (couldnt push it further)
Esteem: 140 kmph (any further above that, & I would take off for sure)

OHC-VTEC: 160 kmph (@7000 rpm - boy, did it feel goooooddd...)
Santro: 125 kmph (again, too light - would take off for sure)

(Both below on German Autobahns)
Nissan Primera: 210 kmph (A very old one, but handled well)
BMW-330: 230 kmph (speed-limiter in-built - boo hoo)

NHC-VTEC: 120 kmph (have to wait till the first servicing to stretch its legs)

was this alto 1100 or 800 cc ???whats a governor opened car?

gsi was 1.6 or 1.4???

Optra 1.6 beat an RS ??? did he have a brick under his pedal??

we own the same cars -

i posted my top speed on corsa 1.4gsi was 175 (speedo)..later on i managed 192ish@5500 rpm OD (speedo)

alto 800 cc i struck 155 in 4th (speedo)..if you shift to 5th the speed actually drops ..

i was still running in my Optra 1.6 ..so i dont know much about it ..

Hi,

As i stated Lxi i.e. 800 CC and governors opened car is a car where there is speed lock. A car company usually restricts the car speed but if u have governors opened then u can exceed the top speed of car. Its just like Pete kit but it doesnt not improve pickup etc.. it just sets the top speed opened.

Corsa GSi 1.4..

Regarding the RS thing.. The rs guy was chiken sht... as soon as 120 - 140 he used to get scared.. I think he was looking more at speedo than on road..

Optra is nice car.. I would buy a optra anytime over any other car in its class....

you meant they car rev limiter was extended or removed...damn thats crazy ,why do it to an alto ..but i touched 155 speedo ..and it was nowhere close to the limiter ...
160 cannot be the true speed of alto anyways they are subjected to speedo errors..stock alto doesnt not have that much power ...

How'd you manage that? The Vtec doesn't hit 160kmph in 3rd gear (not even on the speedo).

My car manages only 154kmph (speedo)@7100 in 3rd.

Thats bcoz, at 160kmph in 4th the Vtec does around 5600rpm and in 3rd it should be doing around 7400rpm (which isn't possible as the limiter kicks in at 7100). 3rd gear is limited to 154kmph.

The Vtec doesn't have any gear which does 7000rpm at 160kmph (3rd being the closest match).

Im with that Shan2nu, there isnt a gear in ohc VTEC where you can do 160kmph at redline!!!
Here are OHC VTEC figures :
1st gear redline: 58kmph
2nd gear redline: 96kmph
3rd gear redline: 154kmph
4th gear redline: 195kmph
5th gear redline: never achieved!!!
