    Default Baleno Road Grip

    Dear fellows, I have baleno 99, which i raced up to 170km/h on eid day at sharea faisal karachi. When we get back home my cousin (sitting along) told me that you did a suicidal sort of thing and that this car has no road grip (I have 185/75/R13 tyres). Alot of more people said the same thing to me. What i wish to ask is that is this true cuz i have here at pakwheels seen ppl admiring the road grip of this car. I have no issues with my car but just for inner satisfaction need you ppl comments. Thanks

    Also, I dont think that baleno has any speed limiter like civics or altis have. If i am wrong pls correct me.

    its a good car! good road grip! i drove mine to 180 once! on the m2! but trust me when i got back i realized it was a stupid adrenaline rush to overtake a civic! shouldn't have done that! its not a safe option! although i say its safe till 150 if you have good tyres!

    the only problem a baleno has is that its aligned from the factory to have more grip at the back and less at the front... same problem a BMW e36 has.

    good thing with the BMW is that you can actually adjust its suspension geometry

    The majority of production cars (as said above) are not configured to go beyond 150kmph. Its not just a matter of road grip only, the suspension, engine and braking are just way over their limits at these speeds. You have very little manouvrability and zero braking on say a standard 1.3 Baleno at these speeds.

    I believe that the 1.8 Altis auto (with ABS) has a limiter somewhere around 170kmph..... one can assume that Toyota put it there for a reason.

    Though high speed runs on the M2 one can get away with and justify to some extent, though one has to watch out for any animals or obstructions on the road and pray that you don't have any problems with tyre burst etc. Knowing the time and distance needed by a 1.3 to go 0-160 and then back to 0kmph, it completely fails me why anyone in the normal state of mind would try this within the city.

    ... but then again I feel like an old man talking and knowing quite well my share of crazy stuff, I can only pray for safety of all pakwheel members.

    this is not important for me to search about the speed limiter in baleno but i like u should see these pictures and think about the ppl who love you so much. 170 at shahrae faisal is nothing but extreme danger not only to your own life but others too.

    Baleno has an excellent road grip but at such a high speed like 170kmh you should not rely even if it is some other brand.

    u should be thankful to Allah that u are able to post this topic even after doing 170 on shahra-e-faisal... be kind to yourself & please dont overspeed.. we have dozens of threads recently on PW that people have lost their precious lives doing 140 on even more "stable" local cars than baleno!
    don't love the car you own.., own the car you love!

    ^ lol

    @postr, i guess at thoose speeds even the traction control gives up.

    nd yes Baleno nd Civics (have the best road grip out of the cars ive driven) mayb due to the independent rear suspension.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    @all. Guys would you please just relax. I am not that kinda driver that you ppl are thinking of me. Secondly, I understand the risk behind driving so fast but pls mind it that when i did that there wasn't a car visible to me far ahead (still i admit that these cars are not meant to drive that way). It was around 9am that day and i droped my bro who had duty that day too. Nadeem, Usmanansari, c123 and all others who posted remarks, i thankyou so much for being well-wishers to me. The only thing that pinched me was that people did gave such frightful remarks that baleno has no raod grip blablabla that i didn't helped and askedd you ppl abt it. And guess what, my mormal way of drive is 20km/h 2nd gear, 30km/h 3rd, 40-50km/h 4th and any thing over and above this 5th gear. I think this will calm down all my fellows getting angry on me. But that anger has care behind it so thanks all of you.
