@jkdas... If it does 140 kmph @ 3100 rpm then you are wrong abt the 100 kph thingie or vice vera or a major speedo error
Now maths...

100 kph /2500 rpm = .04 kph per rpm so to say :P
.04 X 3100 = 124 kph which is wayyyy off the 140 kmph mark you said.

Maths lies now and then.

140 @ 3.1K or so for sure and 100-120kmph @2500rpm, not sure which. Will confirm tomorrow

Does anyone know what the rpm will be when it does 160kmph?

Maths again but I wont delve deeper.... approx 3600 rpm taking into account it does 140 @ 3100 rpm.

P.S. Before anyone comes with different gear ratio theory... I am ssuming all these speeds are in 5th gear hence the ratio remains the same.

Do i use premium diesel or normal diesel with systemD?
Anything else that i should be careful of in the intial days.
A big congrats and happy trucking.

I did take my Cycus Grey LX 2.2 VTT the very next day for a 2600 km journey and the precaution was not to cross 100 kph and took some short breaks with driving a max of 400 km the first day. If you are going to the hills, the variation of speed acts as a natural control.

Do go through the manual, that requires patience but you will be suprised to learn the various small things that has to kept in mind, most important being the turbocharger and catalyst care.

Fuel choice has me totally confused, the smoothness and noise free performance is there with premium and now hearing more and more that normal diesel is what should be used.

Going back to the video




It is 3200 at 140 [at 42 secs in video], and remember 150 came up at almost or at 3500.

Sorry I can't get excited about this video.
Feeble, in my opinion.
I'm wondering whether you've seen (on this very forum) great attempts by Samurai at putting his Grand Vitara through its paces!

That majority of sliding/drift came due to the rear LSD - the video shows it is a Safari Dicor 2.2 4wd.

Anyway some harmless fun on a dusty parking lot.

Dude,

Congrats 2.2 mini truck. I always voted for Scorpio over Safari.
But still congratulate you buying this.
Dont' rev beyond 2750.
Get the tyre pressure corrected every week.
Don't apply urgent breaks.
Get the waxing job done and don't clean it with dusty cloths.(
Grey tend get dull if you do that.)

Keep a eye on feel of the engine for consistence turbo performance

Everything else(including above) have been discussed in the forum..


Have fun with monster...

cheers
Anju

Sorry, I disagree.
Pray where did you spot rear LSD at work & reponsible?
Heck, I'm not even sure the vehile was in 4WD mode for that video!

1. That is a 4wd Safari, it shows on the video. writen 4x4 on the sides. Safari has Limited Slip Differential in 4x4 version.

2. Whether it was in 4wd mode that is immaterial, the LSD will come into play anytime there is a difference of wheel motion. With LSD it is much easier to execute a slide.



Quote:
An LSD is basically some thing that locks up both or your wheels and makes them work with the same amount of power. An open diff...makes it that an outside tire of a turn would be be spining more the the inside tire.

If one wheel begins to spin then equal mounts of power is sent to both wheels. either causing them to grip, or both to spin.. either way you will come out of the corner faster.. or you will drift smoother..

Open differential makes it hard to hold a drift for very long. It also makes it less predictable as one tire is dragging... and you cant really predict which tire in all cases.
