ohh VTEC !!

long time back on jaipur highway...i touched 205 (speedo) in 5th gear OHC Vtec ..trying to catch my friends racings 2 esteems ...but i wonder if the front wheels were touching the ground i was sweating in my palm hoping nothing goes wrong ..my buddy in the passenger turned pale white (his mama'ji new vtec barely done 3000kms ,stolen in the middle of the night,driven by a maniac whose out to catch 2 esteem who passed them 2 mins bac at around 130k's)

.. raw power and high revs !! we had a lot to laugh at when the esteems quit racing and started calling.. i was able to maintain 175's with ease while passing them ,but trying to catch up we did a 205 ..

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

Hey Shan2nu, Wolf, you are correct - I was in 4th gear doing 160 kmph at ~6000rpm (or thats what the speedo/tacho said) - the 7000 figure was just an oversight over there - i never crossed 150 on the 3rd @7000 rpm

Apologies for misleading

Fastest ever-162 kph- Esteem VX-Mumbai Pune Expressway
Other Highs:

150(Speedo) in my Zen Vxi-Expressway, No AC, Engine screaming like a banashee
150 in an Indigo, also on the expressway.

But the most fun was when i drove from Bijapur to Badami and did 120 in my zen on an undivided, two lane highway.....

WOOO baby, this is a hot thread. Well the top speed that i could achieve in an indian car was my girl friends MPFI Esteem vx (2001). I hit 182kmph(speedo) . Well no speedo error since me and my babe were racing against a friend of mine in a ford ikon 1.6 who was doing 178kmph(speedo) when i went past him. Was a scary experience because the esteem was running on stock 155/80/R-13s. Well i completely forgot to tell you that this was achieved on a beautiful strip in Verna, goa where we friends went for a holiday last year.
I loved the car soo much that i went ahead and bought it, a 2005 esteem vxi(BSIII) . The fastest that i have ever driven is a Ferrari F-40 in Quwait nudging 305kmph(speedo).
Cheers

a stock esteem 2001 - has a top speed of 175..
ikons are known to have the worst of speedo errors ..i think i saw somewhere in this forum someone saying a speedo indicated 210kmph..

hi all

i drove a hertz rented ford falcon v6 on the great ocean road outside of melbourne( actually lost my way out of geelong iceman) at 200+ kph for about 15-20 mins..... didnt have the guts to carry on speeding at that level..... it was pouring cats n dogs that evening and me and a few of my malaysian buddies were heading home.... they all were too tired to drive and i was offered the key..... i'll remember that drive for as long as i live....



oh yeah.... my rd 350 at 145 kph on the road that turns left off mathura road and heads straight to dagar's(faridabad mp)( sounds familiar kpzen??!!?) residence near surajkand.... my elder bro was pillion on the greenfields road and boy did he hold on for dear life or what.... ofcourse a thrashing was what i recieved for my heroics once i reached home and my bro told my folks about it....
cheers
