    Default 2.0 D (2002) Vs GLi (2009) on M1

    Today I travelled from Rawalpindi to Rashkai on motorway early morning on my 2D. The road was clean with no motorway police. But light rain / drizzle was spoiling the fun as my tyres are bit worn out (done almost 30000 km).

    I came across a brand new GLi (2009) with HIDs. The driver was doing good 120 kph but with his HIDs on full beam and flickering them on anythig he sees ahead. I overtook him but this was too much for his ego.

    He pressed the pedal and his VVTi came out roaring with a good accelration from 120 to about 150 kph. I was annoyed by his HIDs so I pressed my 2D and old buddy 2C spilled its beans with a sluggish response from 130 to 150.

    Now at 150 both cars were neck to neck cruising on the flat M1 surface in the wee hours of a rainy morning.

    We exchange a quick glance. His ego riding on a brand new 1.3 VVTi and me trying to survive my honour on a six year old (100 k) driven 2 D.

    We both squeezing out the max we could get. I was in overtaking lane and he was in carriage lane. My tyres were bothering me as we had a wet surface. Both cars spraying a fine shower on each other. The mist was creating a dramatic effect.

    The black XLi with its aerodynamic shape and mean looking eyes (With HIDS they really look mean). Old 2D in rose mint colour (Which is slightly feminine) trying to save her honour.

    Till 160 we were together, at 165 2D was slightly gaining, at 170 2D was a cars length ahead, at 175 2D was doing a good lead.

    The I spottted a car in carraige lane which was posing an obstacle to the GLi. I cut the engine and motioned to call off the event. The other guy agreed and we both exchanged a parting wave and separated to avoid each other. It was almost daylight and he also switched his HIDs which was a relief to every one on motorway.

    2D is still a good engine. 1.3 VVti is good compared to old 1.3 engine from toyota in GLi / XLi as I have easily smoked many rollas on petrol previously. But this one was a tough cookie to handle.

    PS: Speed thrills but kills. Be careful not to over indulge in such adventures. Drive safe.

    @all

    according to toyota experts, a fuel cut system is installed in 2D corolla and because of that it stops fuel suply @ 170 km/hr so this fellow of mine reached 175 km/hr which is debatable.

    normally brand new cars dont have much power.
    engine delivers its max power normaly after 10 to 15 thousand kilometers.
    so that might be a point in this story.

    No Doubt Diesel cars give nice feel after 140kph while X-GLi died out after 140kph.

    Especially if CNGed then kujj na poocho.

    I will surely like to know the refernce which tells that there is a speed limiter in 2D which is connected with speedo (170 kph) and not with RPM (Red Line). Otherwise experts like Puppo Mistry and Sheeda Mechanic all have very interesting theories, which are yet to be proved.

    Anyhow the point of story is not to undermine any cars capability, but was just to share an interesting incident. Anybody who has driven Diesels, know that how pathetic they are at sart up, but thier handling and behaviour changes significantly at higher RPMs.

    diesels are fun at high speeds for sure but dont compare a babay adam k zamanay ka 2c diesel with modern engines. ae101/102 frame was faster with 2c bcz of it weight but previous 8th gen corolla that came till 2008 cant go over 155,160 and thats my personal experience.

    @topic

    in 2002 when i was looking for a diesel brand new car. I had two options
    Sunny and Corolla
    at that point of time i came to know about this speed limiter of corolla and after buying Sunny, I checked it my self.
    I raced several times with corolla and it doesnt go more than 170 km/hr.

    people i have always had pleasurable experience with 2D.
    Its a really cool and reliable machine and surely the torque is a laugh specially when you are driving around 150 KMS.
    I have myself experienced that 2000 civic vti and corolla se saloon really had tough job keeping up with a 2000 2D on motorway.
    And i have also heard of a speeding ticket to 2000 2D at 185 KM/Hr speed.

    sarayaan nay mil k inni lambi behs layee hai.....pawain yaqeen na aye te race la k dekh loooo


    brothers, diesel is a hard target on highways, only few petrol engines can reach there.....but for shorter runs even a 1300 cc petrol can easily beat a 2000cc diesel.
    Prepare for the worst, Hope for the best.

    Liked the story as it was narrated .. excellent writing skills, a higher vocabulary can take make you a writer of class.

    I had a personal experience of racing with a 2.0d 2003-2005 model(as judged from rear lights), I was on city 02 and on petrol ... On lahore multan road, late night, we ran neck to neck at speeds touching and at times exceeding 160. All the while my car had the initial pick but I was barely keeping up at top speeds. The breaking and pick were my leads otherwise my car was no match had it been motorway. After about 10 mins, since it was real dangerous we both slowed down.
