that was altered. notice the one in the display only has enough space for a 1. those displays always have spaces to form an 8

funny nonetheless

maybe... but i dont think they're gonna spend that much money for a LED panel that size to tell people how fast they're going. they should just make a sign that says "look at your speedometer"

yep. 100km/h=62m/h. so, by that token, 200km/h=124m/h, and 300km/h=186m/h (also, incidentally, the 'gentleman's agreement' top speed cap chosen by the japanese manufacturers).

I don't feel like calculating the extra fifteen, but it's close to 196.

Close enough PGK. 315KPH = 195.73 MPH. It`s not unreasonable, but it does look doctored.

Why not I cruise on the Interstates of Alabama at about 180. With no gear, a wife beater, shorts, and flip flops. Most of the time I am wearing a Skid Lid. Not really but I did make the mistake one time of coming up from a tuck at speeds that we will not go into, to look at a cop running radar in the median. Not thinking I almost broke my neck because I sat up from the tuck and turned around. PLEASE DON'T TRY IT!!!! It really scared the sh*t out of me.

1.6 kilometers per mile. 315kmh devided by 1.6 is 196.875(multiply mph by 1.6 to get km/h)

BTW 80 km/h is 50 mph
