    100% true. The speed is calculated at the ABS sensors. Tire size is the only thing that will make you speedo off.

    Interesting. I feel like it's been a little closer than it was before. Maybe just making things up :D

    Because he stated his tire size and gear ratio, So what you stated is irrelevant because he has a larger tire. Geez dude you get it now? And Joecova is just an idiot!

    The higher MPH the more you'll notice. Yours should be about 5mph at 65mpg higher

    And as I clearly stated. Gears will have absolutely nothing to do with how far your speedo is off. Gearing is irrelevant to what he was trying to say and I was pointing that out.

    A 285/75 will have about 7% difference so you wont see much until the higher speeds.

    I wouldnt waste your breathe on him, knows nothing and contributes nothing.

    Alright Einstein all I know is he stated his tire size and gear ratio and commented on his MPH which is not accurate. So you're reply about gear ratio alone is irrelevant. I'm done dude.

    Anyways back to reality

    Tire size is the only thing that changes speedo. Not gears.

    For anyone who looks back and this and has to decipher some shit.

    Yeah you guys are totally right my speedo did not change. Which is awesome because I'm sending this hypertech box back.

    I'll be honest, the 5.29s in my MT are way lower than I thought they would be. About 72-74 is my top speed while keeping the revs under 3k.

    I'm also running a kdmax tune - she's a bit touchy now.

    However I'm about to do a cross country trip in the next 10 days. Will be gone a month. I'll really get to test these things out :bananadance: and I'm pretty excited for it!

    Edit: I'm also looking forward to doing donuts in 2lo now!! Hahaha

    This is long thread..I'm wondering about REM polishing Nitro gears; specifically whether I should get it done and if it hurts the gears lifespan. I keep reading conflicting opinions

    It polishes the gears removing imperfections in the manufacturing process. I'm not aware of any negative effects or opinions.

    This has probably been discussed a bunch of times.. But I'm skipping to the end of the thread... Thoughts on 5.29s with 33s?
