I'm pretty sure he means he has checked against indicated RPMs that he has
actually reached on a top speed run, not that he has assumed that he can
reach the highest indicated marker and calculated from there.

'96 Mustang Cobra Convertible - 435 RWHP (Laser Red, Saddle, Saddle - shhh,
it's sleeping)
'02 Audi S4 6-speed (Santorin/Onyx/Silver Alcantara sport)
'02 Nissan Xterra XE-SC 4x4 AT (Black)

>> I know its about 181mph, equivalent to 290 k per h because I have checked
it against the rev counter

>Is that a reliable way of calculating a top speed? Surely if Audi
>somehow put a 7th gear in, it wouldn't suddenly be able to do 200mph?
>Surely something else gives up first? Presumably it gets to the point
>where the engine can't push the car anymore, no matter what the revs
