Plenty of room on the old IHC/Carpenter for the 22.5 up front. Made a world of difference, drives great, and a few extra MPH is much appreciated on this beast!

Tango As for the gauges being off... most of the gauges need replaced and don't work anyways, why not add on a speedometer re-program as well!

Actually...there are some pretty decent GPS speedos these days. And they work on just about anything...as long as the Chinese don't go shooting down our satellites.

do the GPS speedos take into account when you are climbing or descending a grade? maybe im lame but would seem that your speed as noted by the Coppers via radar or laser is your flat-ground speed.. but when on a grade wouldnt your "across the satellite" speed read slower because of the attack angle? or am I just plain over-thinking things again?..

Hmmm...my speed going down hill is always faster than going up hill. If you look close enough to a curve there is a flat spot lol.
Laser and radar are all line of site, so if there is a dip in the road they loose you.

Hmm GPS unit. Maybe I can find a half decent phone app speedometer. Like Caddilackid... the only time ill need to actually care about my speed is when i'm trying not to drive faster than a 20mph school zone!

Also, down hill is definitely faster... though she still screams like a banshee Haha!
