Ok...was your car built in CAN? That image is deceiving, it looks like 140mph is the last number, if it was in metric, then 220kph would be the last number.

That image looks like the primary speed units are in MPH


The car was built in the United States.

I'll try this one last time!

The main readout has 0 to 140 and can be EITHER MPH or KM/H. When you switch the main cluster to METRIC in the car, the needle on the dash will still go to 140, but the number it points to is NOW to be read as KM/H

It'* hard to understand unless you see it, but the light on the dash switches from being lit as MPH to KM/H, and the needle now reflects how many KM/H you are going, but still only goes to 140.

The car was going 84mph in that picture, but because I set the clusters to Metric using the switch the car contains, the needle was reflecting how many KM/H I was going, being 136 KM/H.

I hope this clears it up.. the needle actually changes... if I'm going 84mph and hit that switch, it instantly jumps on the dash to 136.. as it is now indicating KM/H.

Quite simply, you failed to regard our policy on flaming. You brought it here, you'll take it back with you.

Wow, all this since I was out. I started this thread because I did not know what the top speed limiter was on a 00 Ei, because I didnt think 135 sounded right, this would be the place to ask
and that was the pic in his sig, Whatever

We are done here..

All he had to say was the the speedo converts to kph when I hit the EM switch (or whatever) the gage (despite the MPH scale) temporarily reads in kmh

So...84 mph is 140 kph and the speedo reads as such, until it adjusts, which I assume it does

This thread has been cleaned up to the TECHNICAL aspects that it should have been all along. No flames of any type are tolerated on this Website. If you have a dispute at CGP, keep it there. We don't want it or need it here.

On-topic or lockdown. Period.

Edit......Boogie since you continue to post with regards to this on CGP, I'll state the following. GTX Cowboy did NOT flame anyone on this website. If there'* a war that we're not aware of here, then keep it away from here. I saw his orignial, unedited post yesterday when it was made. He asked a question. You joined this club for the sole purpose of flaming him. That makes you wrong. Period. CGP may tolerate that, but this club does not. No exceptions.

ALL MEMBERS:

This policy is stated in NOTICE. Please heed it in the future:

Quote:
Due to the recent growth of the Bonneville Club, we need to adopt some more specific rules regarding flamers:

Any flames posted will be deleted by an Admin or Moderator. No member here will reply to any flames. Should a member reply to flames, the reply will also be deleted, and the poster will be PM'd a warning. The theory here is that some of the flamers won't post if they know they won't get a reaction from anyone. So to simplify this:

If you see FLAMES:

1. Do NOT reply in any way.
2. Stay ON TOPIC as if the flames didn't exist, or don't post at all.
3. Report the flames to an Admin or Mod to help us find it quicker.

These 3 simple steps will help keep the Bonneville Club the way Jeff intended it. A safe, comfortable, and respectful environment.

Flames are considered any PERSONAL attack on a member, their beliefs, their car, their race, color, or religion, etc. This is a friendly atmosphere and a CAR forum. Pretty much no deliberate negative remarks that another person would consider personally offensive.

Thanks in advance for you cooperation and help (especially to those in the past that have helped with this).
