RE: high rpm @ h-way speed

Gary Kaklikian decided to speak these words:

>Mine's the same way - I think they all are. 75 actual is about 83 indicated.
>No wonder we all think the type 44 cars are so fast - 140 indicated is
>probably only about 128 actual. 
>No excuse for a speeding ticket - right?

My car is the exact opposite, 65 indicated is actually around 70.  When 
im at 3k it says im doing about 67-68 and im actually doing around 
74.5...  I figured out the math...

so, its bad, now i finally figured out why i have gotten 2 speeding tix 
in this car...the speedometer.  Im going to use this info to fight my 
most recent one...we'll see what happens...
