nope that is a 1.2.. was a surprise for me too as my car has done 165kmph before but on the other day following spider77's baleno which was doin 180
my speedo slowly climbed to 170.
the only mod in my car is a k&n Xstream filter
X-Stream® Air Flow Assemblies, Air Filters, and Air Filter Tops

And how stable is the Santro at that speed? Isn't that really dangerous?

Were you in 5th? Seemingly the palio really struggles to pull in 5th once you hit high speeds.

I did a 140 Kmph on my Wagon-R on Durgapur Expressway.... but did not sustain for long on that as mine is a 5 yr. old car and the steering was generating a lot of vibrations at that speed. The car was otherwise stable though.

However I find that 110-120 Kmph is quite OK with this car as I often do it on AJC Flyover mostly while comming back from office at night if the stretch is empty.

I tried both 4th and 5th gear. All in vain it wont go beyond 140kmph even with two ppl on board

KP, maybe you too need to follow a Baleno which is doing 180....and then it will slowly climb to 170

That was the problem, you were exerting lot of pressure by standing on the pedal bringing the speed down.
