What do the 1234 markings on the speedo relate to.. Driving my R4 this evening I wondered.
To quote from the handbook:
'Orange figures 1/2/3/4 indicate the most economical speed for the gear concerned. They help you drive economically. As soon as the speedometer needle reaches 1-2 or 3, change up to the next higher gear.
Example: Needle reaches 2 when in 2nd gear, change into 3rd.'
Thanks Andy, makes sense .. Driving up to these numbers certainly means revving up to the maximum.. I change up earlier
If I saw 1234 on my speedo-it woud mean I was going just above mach1 ,I would probably thank the lord
for those superb aerodynamics -Reid
I'm sure Reid, you can reach mach 2 with your Alpine engine but only when you do an upgrade on the gearbox
I agree with the superb aerodynamics and don't underestimate the incredible downforce.
I think it's the maximum recommended speed you can reach in each gear, not the "greenest" point to put the next.
