175KMPH my skyline 3rd gear (5 speed manual)

200KMPH on Falcon

180 KMPH in Toyota chaser
Be 3rd gear or 5th all jap cars (made for japan) are restricted to 180kph. In nz we get a lot of these jap imports. I would never buy a import as the service is taken for granted on most cars as they get rid of them in 6 years time.

Pretty cheap to import cars in NZ isnt it

My mate is there and he was telling me that you guys dont pay any taxes on them. I paid 1800 dollars Custom and Quarantine on my skyline.
Yes of course they are restricted thats what I wrote above.
You can Bypass that but remapping ecu or using a Bee*R if you know what that is

Hi all ,How fast have you gone in your vehicle?
This Speed was done at MYSORE-MADIKERI highway,with luggage on top With 7 onboard.
Posting some pics of my ODO (mHawk Mist Silver)

Nice thread that!

The fastest I have gone in my Fiat Linea 1.4 FIRE Petrol is a touch over a speedo-indicated 180 kmph [:D]; in fact I have gone past that figure a number of times...the only problem is the photos come out a bit blurred every time. Nevertheless I am posting one of them here. I have routinely driven this car above 160 kmph, though the last time I did that, got lucky not to have smashed into the treeline trying to spare a cyclist who came all fired up onto the main road from a side alley...the stock tyres on the car are now over 30000 km old, thank God for ABS as I jammed on the brakes hard to shed speed fast otherwise it might have been curtains.

On my old Zen Lxi, the max I could do was a speedo-indicated 140 kmph. Try as I might, she just won't go over that mark![frustration]

I have done 180+kmph in my Verna CRDI!! Have a picture of only 160+kmph though as i was alone when crossing 180+!! This was done with A/C on only , without A/C i think it gets very scary due to the heavy winds! The handling was not that great at that speed , the steering was very light and the steering wheel started to vibrate when braking at those speeds!! The suspension of the Verna is the main problem here , at such speeds even a small bump will jolt up the car completely!


Have done 160kmph in my Safari once in ECR!! Here i would say the car was rock steady and my fiends were sleeping in the car without knowing i was speeding and the noise was also minimal! The car was loaded with 7 people and A/C on!! You will not feel that you are doing 150+ , here also the steering wheel becomes very light but still it was good and not like Verna! You will feel confident to drive at that speeds!! But the steering wheel vibrates at those speeds and braking at those speeds is also scary!! But the suspension is great here! It absorbs almost everything even at such speeds!!


But i would highly recommend not to drive at those regularly , just once in a while is okay but still very risky! Our roads are not designed for such speeds!!
Hey Mukesh, Surender, cooldhaya- great stuff guys.
I myself have done a speedo-indicated 180 kmph on my regular petrol Linea a number of times and have fond memories of a few races on NH 95 and NH 1, mostly with guys driving Vernas or Accents, a Laura once.(Link-http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/f...1373-how-fast-have-you-gone-your-ride-14.html)

But never a City! I have tried my best to provoke them but so far, all the ANHC guys (even young guys driving alone) have chickened out once we hit 150+ !!!

As far as the Vernas go, mostly we finished neck and neck or I just about pipped them except once when an Accent beat me nice and proper. I was left dumbfounded with that guy's pick-up! Maybe he had a performance chip installed or something (he didn't give me a chance to ask him, ha-ha) but that car went like a wild horse with fire under its arse!

And yes, the Linea's steering weighs up nicely at high speeds and the car itself is stable and grips the road nicely, though the plaintive wails from the engine above 160 tell you it is not exactly euphoric being driven at those speeds![;)]
