Know what I am saying? Memorizing the mph to km conversion is a small price to pay.

They are maximum downshift points. The maximum upshift is a few hundred rpm higher.

Not rpm, speed. At 140 mph u are not going to be doing much down shifting.

Which is, directly tied to RPM.

Ah! Just realized. Damn, so next question is where can I find these with mph. Kim isn't gonna take the time to learnkph. I wonder if not having mph might get me out of a ticket or two...hmmmmmm.

Wow. I've definitely gotta get me one o' those AMG cars. If it can do 55 km/h at 500 rpm on zero oil pressure, just imagine what will happen when the pedal is pushed!!! Tongue

Gone but not forgotten: two W123 sedans and two W124 wagons.
