is that reaching the rev limiter ?

does the car have the same kinda of pull ?? Or does it seem a lil slower.

Lol i won't delve any deeper cuz I'm not familiar with these kinda things , but could be the gear ratios. Or it could be the fact that newer things work better :p best waiting for someone who knows bout these things.

your gearbox was prob shafted then (no pun intended) and you seem to have noticed the difference. Bit sceptical on the old figures though....
