Torque addict and racer's pictures are great.

Any speeds im hill driving.

I have done up hill at 70 max.
down speed crossed 80+
Stopped as my friend at rear was about to vomit . i stopped to save my car.

Just one of my friend will sit next to me when am driving at hill. Others at rears with there faces glued to floor.

Plan to take them a ride again in a sophisticated car like innova/verna/ford/etc [lol]

Doesn't help!!
Driving fast on hill-roads will always risk your upholstery if your friends are so inclined, irrespective of the car.

I like that!!
(But carry towels!)
The problem I have with hill roads is that it is normally too exciting to be glancing at the speedo!!
My favourite is the stretch at Lonvala on the Mumbai-Pune Eway, and it is possible to cross 100 on the sweeping curves, if you have remembered to check the tyre pressures, and prayed that morning.

Recently had been to pune .What a confusing city,No sign boards.
I wanted to go shirdi via pune. People there really dont know the way.
They confuse the outsiders.
I finally got the way through Hadapsar-Ahmadnagar highway.
But covered the whole city of pune from start till airport,Somehow reached Shirdi.

I have taken my Punto yesterday upto 145+ speed yesterday on NICE road. This is superb car to drive on high speed.
I have captured it (when i was about approx 140), will post picture later.

Just got a PM re my statement of "one sleeping wife". [surprise]
Let me clarify ... I have only one wife, sleeping or otherwise!![:D]

You should never drive that fast when the family is sleeping. You know what I mean, right?

RSM how was the response at 140+ ? I mean over all stability of the car to sustain the wind pressure ?

The car was perfectly grounded and under full control over 145 speed. I could take a picture also @ 140. Steering is top class specially on higher speed.
