hi, i have a 1.6 16v colt the one i had previous was fast and did 130mph and had no engine upgrades that i knew about, apart from de cat, my one know is slow and is lucky to see 110mph and sits at 4k in 5th and has nothing left, is this normal as my first one was quick?

I seriously doubt you ever got 130 out of a 1.6 Colt. Did you have aftermarket wheels fitted?

My 15"s with 195/50/15 tyres read about 10% higher than the 17"s on 205/40/17 tyres. Therefore, on my 15"s, the clock might say 60 when the gps says 55, and on the 17"s it was bang on.


However, why are you tearing about at 110/130 anyway? You obviously don't enjoy driving and w,ould rather give your license back to the courts.

As long as she drives straight and pulls strong (and if it doesn't, then why did you buy her?), then ignore the estimated speed on the clocks and just enjoy her.

17" alloys fit a CJ no problem- 7j width, PCD 4x100, offset et42 & 205/40/17 tyres- TRUST ME!!

to post pictures use photobucket etc and post the img code into the thread. and top speed wise i got my old cj 1.3 to 120, was on the m1 with a tad back wind but did it and that was on 15's. dont condone driving at that speeds, but make sure your car is serviced and is running right and your 1.6 should be good for however fast you want to drive it

The fastest I was doing was 120 too...But it was only once,I was going down the hill on M40...

Normally I drive safe and trying not to exceed the speed limit,as I preefer to have licence clear and enjoy driving rather than loose it and banging my head onto wall in despair :)...
