I'm sure Mook (Skewer.co.uk) could hook you up with a nice set without unwanted logo's on them..

Here is a list of all of the diffferent gauge options for the st185 (it was a pain getting these guys all of the info/pics for all of the different gauge configurations, but most of the interested people on my group buy were from overseas and I had to make my minimum order...)

I'm actually the one who worked with speedhut years ago and got these made. Also the foshiznit Celica and GT-Four graphics were designed by yours truly 8)


Thanks a for the link man I think I'm going to have to order some.

For grins and giggles...I'll post

I have pulled a buck and a quarter in the alltrac..
Scared to go faster than that as the suspension is shot...

Seen 155+ on my motorcycle... getting there is way to fast to notice..
slowing down was the scary part..

done 145+ in a formula 2000

Done 150ish in a 125shifter kart! That is scary...
1/4" off the ground, F1 like steering... wow...

my poor ole MR2 was drag limeted to around 125ish...

Just recently a new law in Ontario.
If you go more than 50kph (31mph) over the limit, you get charged with "racing" and fined a min $2000. Oh yeah and they impound your car for 7 days. On the spot.

lol Ontario.


I've pushed my Celica to whatever the governor is on the car. The speedo goes up to 180km/h so I'm guessing about 190km/h?

Interesting.
Over here, if you get busted doing 50 kmh over the limit, you loose your license (for 4 months or longer, depending on the situation at the time of the violation) and get a ~€1000 fine or higer.

Think the 4 months or longer ban from driving would kill me! Mate of mine had this experience after doing 180 kmh on a short 80 road, in style though - with a company Ferrari :doh:

I turned 5,100 RPM in fifth gear at the last tarmac rally with a st185 trans and a 165 center diff. I am not sure how fast that is but my tire size for tarmac is 225/50/16 if anyone wants to try and figure out the math (not my strong suit). I am just guessing but I think we may have gone 115 or 120mph.

I have turned a best of 157 mph on the back stretch of VIR full course but have had the Z-28 just over 200 on GPS last time I went to Mexico. I also turned the back two sparkplugs into melted ruin during that run, I think the back two cylinders got a little too much nitrous on the fifth gear pull..
