Re: Thanks everyone
The Ur speedo will only show up to 255km/h (156mph?) after which the numbers
don't increase. Kind of fun doing the estimating from the tach at those
speeds. The car in question - an UrQ with a modified 20V RS2 engine and
trans. FWIW the speedo showed over 240km/h when 6th gear got selected and
the acceleration process started all over again.
My UrQ has seen 228km/h indicated on a nice straight open section of
single-lane highway early in the morning on my way to Helsinki for a
meeting. A guy with new E220 Diesel pulled out in front of me causing a
fairly sudden necessity to scrub off speed.
