    Default Race Between Liana And Vitz

    about 45 mins back I was coming back from super market was on margalla road and on this Faisal Mosque waa signal this shinning blue vitz was standing beside me with a young dude in it thought to race with him so we did. I switched my car from cng to petrol and here we go he came to my rear bumper till 80 km speed and around 120 we had a distance of around 1 car (vitz was behind) now as soon as I touched 130 man this vitz crossed me like it had a 1.8L engine in it came F-8 wala signal did the same thing and after 120 he again crossed me the same way now comes the Fatima Jinnah park signal same thing happened till we reached F-10 markaz signal I asked the dude about the CC of his car and to my shock he told me its a 1.0 man I wanted to burn my ride right there coz of the way I lost the race.

    Now I wat input from vitz owners here that is it really this powerful ? A very good friend of mine who is also a Pakwheeler @cooljamshed has a vitz 1.0, I have asked him to race with me on monday night and lets see if the result is the same or that vitz has some NOS or some thing installed in it

    The challenge came from the vitz guy. The car had exhaust and headers. Peugeot was bone stock and 14 years old surviving in pakistan and it messed the vitz 7 times

    High end torque from a 1.0 is surprising for me as well. Are you sure there was nothing wrong with your car at that time. e.g. Hand brake was up or you were low on fuel

    @spectra no my hand break was in place and I had half tank of petrol but the thing is that he never crossed me in pick up and the distance was about of 1 car till 120.

    @nausher yea it was electric blue with IDD number I guess never got a look of plate but number plate was black and big alloy rims the ones which are in these days lot of spokes walay which are black inside the spokes and dont remember about the bumpers

    @ahm at first I changed from 4th to 5th and he crossed me but after the next signal I never shifted to 5th kept my car in 4th, trust me Liana is one fast car in 1.3 category and I can say that coz I own a xli too.

    Liana is faster than VITZ.......VITZ must have modified....if not then there is something wrong with LIANA...impossible to beat normal LIANA with normal VITZ.......

    Under normal circumstances an auto Vitz 1.0L cannot outrun a manual Liana 1.3L. Liana creams xli's/gli's even. Certainly not on the higher speed regime of 120+ km.

    Could be a number of reasons for this,

    1) Gear change timing not done properly. Half the race is about correct gear shifting.

    2) Tyres may be too comfy and soft on the Liana. Harder the tyre better the racing performance but poorer ride comfort.

    3) Liana takes about 5K km for proper running in for the engine to run in full potential. How much mileage has your Liana made?

    4) The Vitz was either modified or was not 1.0L.

    Max high-end power output:

    Liana 1.3L 66kw/5750rpm
    XLI/GLI 1.3L 60kw/6000rpm
    City 1.3L 57kw/5800rpm
    Vitz 1.0L 53kw/6000rpm

    The fact that the Liana is beating the Vitz on pick is what should be expected. So the power to weight ratio is not a factor here. I find it very hard to believe that once Liana is ahead, it's greater power should carry it way beyond the Vitz.

    Actually I own an all petrol VXL Cultus. On several occasions I have encountered enthusiastic Vitz drivers over the Super Highway. Once I am able to come near a Vitz at 100 to 120 km range I have usually gone ahead of the auto Vitz in that same 120 to 140 range. It's the pick of Vitz that was too much for my Cultus. But on highways pick doesn't play that much of a role because you don't have that many stops and starts.

    The point I am trying to make is that if a Cultus can outrun an auto Vitz on the higher speed regimes then how can a Liana loose after taking a head start?

    to sum it up:

    1. vitz must have definately been modded
    2. due to over-excitment, u were pressing brake rather than accelarator when you crossed 120

    my bro had a liana RXi once and belive me it is fast in the 1.3 category

    Strange Newton bhai, that Vitz MUST be moded, otherwise it has no chance to beat a stock liana even...

    BTW, have beaten Rolla Gli, Civics a number of times with my 1.6 Liana... They don't even come close on the highways
