    Default XLI finds it hard to go above 150

    Salam brothers.
    I have tried to acheive 180+ on XLI quite a lot of times. but even though i have tried different ways to get the car to touch the 180 mark at least. But i havent been able to do so. it seems to struggle a lot after 150 or 160. i have petrol xli. NO cng kit installed. 195/65 R15. rest all is stock no modifications. on the other hand I owned a jap. 1992 rolla which i ran to the max ( i.e 180 ). can anyone advice me on what the issue might be?

    @Memphis

    It is the Principle of Physics that if the height of a car is more, then more air pushes it from the bottom and that makes the car unstable.
    And u know abt the ground clearance of Corolla and Civic.
    Civic is more lower as compared to Corolla.
    Just see the sports cars, why they are so Low? (near to ground)
    Just because of this Physics Law.
    So Obviously Civic's Aerodynamics are better than Corolla!

    Buy a real car. The 1.3L is way too underpowered for that massive body.

    Simple advice: Sell your Xil and buy an Altis. Altis easily hits 190 and you'll be satisfied.

    City did 165 kmph without any effort with stock rims and tyres and was not even on full pedal. Xli has superior engine technology dohc then that of honda city. I wonder why ures is finding hard to go above 150. If u got bigger rims and tyres, ure meter will show about 10-15kmph lesser speed depending on rim size and tyre.

    I don't recommend doing high speeds on an XLi. Me and my cousin did it on my dad's company XLi and we ended up saarh-o-fying a valve.
