The speedo works with only 2 wheels spinning?? I always thought you needed to move all 4 wheels.

You did the burnout in which gear? Coz 120kmph is pretty fast for 1st.

the speedo is on the front wheels generally ..and these grand ams r front wheel drivers if it was rear wheel driver the needle wudnt have lifted .. the car was an 3 spd auto ( P1 P2 P3 and D )..so they have a diff gear ratio as far as can tell ..(so if ur cars in D thn the auto will shift up only 3 times )..
the moment the car gets some traction the speedo will dip ..but didnt go more dan 120 ks coz i had pulled the stick to p1 skipping ...if i put had the shift to Drive (d) thn it wud have shifted to 2nd and ruined the burn out ...

Great going man. 177kmph on a road going RD, WOW. hey that gadget you're holding, it's digital speedo? Is it a GPS device, or just a digital thing you connect to your bike. How does it calculate speed?

Can you give me some more info on it.
