    Just curious if the wheel rotation and shifting of gears during a burnout would cause the speedometer to display a mph readout while the car is standing still with brakes applied?
    What about the top speed memory in the performance pages? Will a top speed register even if the car is standing still during a wicked tire shredding burnout?

    the speedo is working on the dyno video's without the front wheels turning.

    so then the question is will it save the speed attained in the performance pages? If so, a little misleading!

    The performance pages like 0 to 60 times use the front wheel speed sensor the dash speedo is from the rear.

    That's interesting that the speed reads the rear tires as the 0-60 times is measured from the front tires for that exact reason of just doing a burnout would give a false time.

    Go to screen #3 (performance) your DID (Driver Information Display) and it is on the last page to the far right.

    I hope you all are past break-in period. I typically break 100+mph at least once per week, and 115mph once per month in my RT Classic.
