    2500 RPM is a little low… That could be dangerous actually. A new driver should learn the finer points of acceleration, including what the use of full acceleration feels like. Personally, I shift at 3000 usually (to be nice on my engine as it is getting older). But I definitely go above that when I need to accelerate more quickly. It’s possible to drive like this but it’s not good for learning or anything…

        Doesn’t negate the point that there are times that require you to go over 2500 RPM and that people should learn how the car behaves when doing so.

          Do they really need to start putting disclaimers on these things or will people stop being to stupid to realize when something is supposed to be funny? My guess is … disclaimers. Kind of like the coffee cups that say “Be careful-hot liquid”. There sure are alot of stupid people around (or, at least, lots of people with NO sense of humor).

            I get the humour… Not denying that… I don’t get how you somehow got that I don’t have a sense of humour out of that…

    we’re not actually allowed to drive any faster than 65mph anyway (or maybe 70? – 110km/h limit in Australia). stupid companies putting the gauges up to 140mph 225km/h – like my car will ever legally (let alone physically!) do that.

    and like others i don’t get the tachometer. but it’s a joke.
