ASSALAM O ALIKUM dear frnds
actually i got a lil xcited on the last day of my pprs ...lolx ... went to tht EMAR road in phase 8 to check the max speed of my civic ... i gave full throtle in D ! 1st gear changed around 55 2nd 100 and i was surprised in 3rd it went till 165 and the RPM needle was touching 6000rpms still not touching the red line there were almost 3 lines (white coloured lines in tachometer) left , so i think it can touch 170 in 3rd !! well tried my best to touch max speed but within limits afta 180 applied brakes b/c it was getting dangerous ! really afta 4 yrs MASHALLAH se its still a very very nice car ! awesome pick !
The confusion wch is irritating me is i told this story to my friend who owns latest civic 07 .....he said tht his civic doesnt go abv 160 max in 3rd ! i told him tht its simply impossible it can easily do 180 in 3rd since Altis also goes till 180 in 3rd ! he said he ll check it again ! on sunday he again went to tht road and said he tried in D3 and also in D but 160 was the max speed in 3rd !! on the other hand i checked both in D and D3 it almost touched 170 ! so wat do u ppl say ??? personally i believe latest civic can do 180 plus in 3rd but saw it wid my own eyes tht it dies on 160 ! both the cars are automatic and stock !
personally i think 05 auto civic has 4 gears and latest one has 5 so its may b due the diff in ratios ! obviously latest one will have better max speed but it shud also have better pick in 3rd no ???
- and for those who will come here and say m mad , dont try these sort of stupid things on paki roads , i shud clear 1st , i went there around 11:45 in morning 1st checked the whole road both tracks from a to z then tried this theres wasnt a single car or human on tht road ! peace
