    How do you compare the two palio (1.9 and 1.3)? Is the ride better in earlier one? Not read much about the two 1.3 palio as soon after the launch of Punto and Linea it got pulled to the shadow.

    I would say the 1.9 had loads of low end torque...

    In figures it would easily beat the 1.3 from stand still to 60 or 70kmph...
    But after that that the torque comes down like hell...

    Regarding the ride, it's pretty much the same, except I feel that there is less confidence in the 1.3 during curves...

    But to check this out I risked my life and did a curve at 160 kmph....

    There was no squeals from the wheel bearings....
    Nor did the tyres tend to come off track not even the rear tyres...
    I was alone when I tried this

    After which my confidence boosted up...

    I have ordered the clutch master cylinder ,lower arms and all four dampers from Kht motors recently...
    Let's see how long it takes to arrive .....


    Right now the ride is a bit bouncy as the dampers are dud and the body weight is just balanced totally on the springs....
    If I don't soon replace the dampers even the stiffness in the springs may reduce ....

    my dad is right now on the way to bangalore from chirala(my home town) and the first words he spoke to me today were, " how is this car so smooth even after this many kms "??????

    he took her out today after a weeks long drive in his innova.
