170kmph - Hyundai Accent (Stock)
150kmph - Mitsubishi Lancer (Performance Mods Added)

Both the cases are in city roads, so it felt much faster at that point. Though now I don't get that thrill of speed anymore, unless ofcourse I can feel it. 140 is now like 100.

This discussion reminds me of a drive in Melbourne's Albert Park in 1999 which during normal times is part of the city's road traffic system and once a year they hold F1 there. We were driving at decent normal city speed (in an old Merc) but saw at least three Porsches that were rounded up by the cops presumably for speeding - all on the straights and all zombie looking youngsters. The expression on their faces tickled me no end.

Tatha
You are not only dangerous for yourself and your in-laws but also for others sharing the road with you. The Omni tyres are not meant for that kind of speed and can't handle the heat generated by that kind of speed. I hope you didn't do it for any extended period of time. When an Omni overtakes me on the expressways, I slow down completely and let him pass.

112 - RX - Koromangala Ring Road

120 - Baleno (Limited by the Koromangala Ring Road)
In a coupla months time after adding the KnN and the Headers will be going to chennai.. Goal?! - 180!

145 - Esteem Open empty Hosur road towards Ranipet - full throttle, would not budge beyond that.

160 - Friends 1.6 Fiesta - East Coast Road Mahabs - Chennai

130 - non CRDe Scorpio / non independent suspension.. like someone said on this thread SCARRRRRRRYYY and bouncy

Ohh ohh -- and one of my fav and most scary drives

85 kmph on a 20yr old Tempo Trax.. which comfortably seated 12 people.
Steering does not center needed constant correction.

Reached 118 mph/190 kph on a 2007 Hyundai Sonata 2.4 rental car. That car has so much potential.
I must have stayed at that speed for almost a minute. Last night from Toronto to Windsor on the 401, I covered 400 km in about 2 h 45 m.
