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.
