Re: [T3] Engine RPM at 60 MPH?


Pretty close with your tyre calculations Matt - I make that about 3000 rpm for
your 60mph when on test.  I've always used a rough figure of 20mph/1000 rpm in
top, so that looks about right.  I don't know how much worn engines drop in
total power output, but the torque for getting up hills certainly suffers, so it
must make a difference.
