got my tacho in today and took for a drive, and am very impressed with the results

750-800 RPM Idle
changes up gear at 2500-2600 rpm nomally
changes up gear at 3500-3600 rpm booting it
peaked at 4500 rpm in 3rd doing 160kms still rising
spun tires at 3100 rpm (just in [d] not [1]st)
sat at 100kms in blue d on 2100 rpm perfectly,

now to me it sounds like my car is running pretty sweet, so im quiet happy

sat at 100kms in blue d on 2100 rpm perfectly, ?????? Seems a lil high.. about 150rpm too high

changes up gear at 3500-3600 rpm booting it, ?????? What the hell really low

peaked at 4500 rpm in 3rd doing 160kms still rising, ???????? How does it peak if it's still rising.

spun tires at 3100 rpm (just in [d] not [1]st), ????? You don't take off in 4th gear, it does start in 1st

Cheers

its an auto, so when its in white d it still takes off in 1st, and i mean that with the room of rd i have i got to 160kms and it was doing 4500, im sorry i added peaked, and i think a car sitting on 2000-2100 doing 100 kms is ok, concidering the vx's for eg sit on bout that doing 100kms... but i dont care, im quiet happy with what it doing

It ALWAYS takes off in 1st... including using the blue d. The white d is simply 3rd gear, whilst the blue D is overdrive which means the car will sit in 4th instead of 3rd at 60km/h etc.

Whether the gear is 1st, 2nd, white d (3rd) or blue d (4th), it will always take off in 1st. The gear that the shifter is next to is simply the gear that the auto will hold the gears to and sit on when cruising.
