Ok..another really dumb question

Postby oldnotdead06 » Wed Apr 12, 2006 6:36 am

Until I can get the speedo fixed, can someone please give me an idea how I can interpret my speed in RPM's?? The last thing I want to do is get a ticket cuz I didnt know how fast I was going. I'd rather get a ticket for speeding on purpose if that makes sense haha :doh:

haha....this reminds me of the time they had a 240 on pimp my ride and the kid had a "cheat sheet" of rpm's and their corresponding speed in each gear

im off tomorrow so i can get a few approx. speeds for you, that is if someone doesnt before me. im not too sure about the gearing between 165's and 185's but according to the specs section 3, 4, and 5 should be the same and i think the final drive is the same so it should be good.

Thanks guys! If someone could give me a guesstimation of what 30 and 40mph's are. I'm not worried too much about the highway, mostly in town cuz they always have speedtraps set up.
