    Speedometer ID

    Daft question of the day, but makes me chuckle . . . my 220 MPH speedometer. Any ideas what this originally come out off as I have no idea?

    Pass, but I quite like the fact it has a brake warning & headlamp tell-tale built in, even if the 220mph top-end is .. how to say, optimistic

    A lad I went to school with had a mini that went that fast. At least it felt like it at the time.

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    There appears to be several on Speedy Cables website that show 220 k.p.h. Perhaps it is customised. I do know they will build speedos with warning lights incorporated.

    Blimey! Even the GT40 only had a 200MPH speedo!
