eh the hell with the speedo, just drive with the flow of traffic.

knowing how fast youre going isnt a priority, going fast is. devide and conquer. 4.1 with t-loc and do it yourself.

i dont think its a good idea to install 4.1 and a t-lok your self and if you dont get the chip you going to put about 1.2 miles on per mile you drive which is not cool at all.

if you never installed gears before i higly reccomend you dont do it yourself. Installing gears are very easy to mess up on and could be a bigger pain in the *** then it should be.

but 4.10s do kick *** though

From what I just learned recently you can't just say hell with the speedo because it limits your top speed to 74 m.p.h. give or take. Going fast can't always be priority either. You'll end up like me with tickets for double the speed limit on the freeway and have to talk the judge into letting you keep your license.

Fixing the speedo is good, but it isn't necessary. I went from 2.73 to 3.73 in my old Camaro. I just learned to do the conversion from shown speed to actual speed instantly. 90mph indicated = 70mph actual. Roughly.

theres one thing to have a actual fast car, a whole other thing to just drive blatantly fast. i find most people i know with fast cars(13 seconds or faster) actually drive very civil and respect other motorists and the rules of the road. "the faster the car the slower the driver" when you actually have a fast car you realize theres nothing to prove anymore by weaving through traffic like a honduh.

I'd have to agree with that. Most cars I see swerving and trying to go fast are actually the cars that are rather pitiful. However, every once in a while I'll see a corvette or something doing it. Once I was in some terrible traffic where my family and I had been driving for probably over an hour without leaving first or second gear and all of a sudden a ferrari flies by on the shoulder. It probably took us another hour to see it but when we did we saw that it had been pulled over and, because it was an hour later, I assume they took the car from him or were intentionally holding him just to be asses.
