Re: Speedo is offfff
A gear shouldn't cost more than $15-20 for an auto.
reece1 : Glides excellent definately was worth while doing. The car feels like it pulls loads harder and going by the seat'o'pants meter it's a substancially faster too.
I can still cruise around like I did with the C4. I cruise/plod around @ 2000 at roughly 50kph in top gear with the 5200rpm convertor. I've driven it as much as I could between fitting some new parts to it.
My opinion : The people who didn't recommend it have no idea how good it is. I highly recommend it.
I took xbwgn and Falcon Coupe for a spin on my street tyres. I still have to nurse the tyres but they aint that bad. I've got the car rev limited to 6000rpm on the street. We had no trouble accelerating stupidly fast up to the 6000rpm limit in top gear. Gives you that shoving feeling all the way to the 6000rpm limit.
I'm at the strip soon for some testing. So we'll see how we go.  I'm sure it'll surprise a few people once I've strip tested it.
