Coulda swore 7000 rpm in 2nd was 70 mph... 5000 is 50, etc. I can hit 80 in 2nd in my 5 spd because I rev to 8000 rpm.

Going off the speedo, which was not accurate. I remember 1st doing 40, 2nd doing 80, 3rd around 120. Never maxed out 4th.

The point of my post was to say just because the car is geared long it doesn't magically make it faster. That is like saying because a car has a 140 MPH speedo and 100 horsepower it is fast.

I think you guys are over-exaggerating the inaccuracy of the stock speedo. When I cross the 1/4 mile mark at the track my speedo says 109-110mph, and that's what comes out on the time slips. Same with the app on my phone which uses GPS to measure MPH. 135mph on the speedo was 135mph by way of GPS.

I've only heard the first gens were a little more inaccurate at HIGH speeds, like 140+. And second gens are pretty much spot on.

Of course it's dependant on whether or not you have the proper size wheels and tires on your car.

crap that reminds me. I do not remember which speedo gear I have in my car right now.

Either way the difference is only like 3% between 1st and 2nd gen.
