Hey viper you snached the words out of my mouth. I was getting bugged typing a number in between alphabets. Anywayz if viper is also there i guess ill call you the Civic killer(thats suits your image) Well the way you drive gives me an impression that your Juan Pablo and i am Ralf

Which car is replacing the Baleno and i am sure which ever does will also be a super car after you get your hands on it..

When i am planing to come to bangi i would surely like to meet you and meet Rudra Sir with his amby..

P.s Congo on becoming a Senior Bhpian Ice

kooldude,
the reason is because you are pushing the engine to its limit.try shifting a little earlier or get the carb and tuning done so you can push it till there. if its carb engine...else you will be hitting the rev limit for an mpfi car

well, i have owned a baleno, a esteem MpFi , and currently i have the Vtec. Must admit that somehow the suzuki engines do sounds and feel rev happy! They indeed have more pepp in them till the second year, but as ice said....u shift them to third...and they are dead!

Well i havent timed these cars for 0-100kph...but i think that the esteem surely beats the baleno for 0-100kph. coz its got a much better power to weight and torque to weight ratio.

Cant really comment for the Vtec coz.... she is runnign 205's where else my other cars were running stock tires..!

well i rated these cars on the feel good factor.... Coz..as far as road driving goes i really dunt believe in what the clock shows. U drive a zen at 100, drive a esteem at 100 & drive a Vtec or baleno at 100. U will end up getting more kicks and thrill outta your zen.. just coz the car is smaller...so the speed sensation is much higher!!

P.s. lets not consider the safety factor here.... i purposely left it aside...

hey ice, i am coming to banglore in 2nd week of june, So can i also avail a drive of your baleno ???
