Why You Might Need to Recalibrate Your Speedometer

It is not a secret that no speedometer is 100 percent correct. Most manufacturers actually make them so that they fall within a slim tolerance range. Usually, this is not more than one to five percent too fast or too slow. But did you know that this tolerance range can change significantly throughout your tenure as a car owner? It is true that modifications can affect the tolerance range with potential harm to your vehicle or yourself. Speedometers need to maintained and calibrated at a level to ensure that the torque created accurately reflects speed. The ratios that measure this speed include gears in the drive cable, the final drive ratio in the differential, and the diameter of the tires. These ratios play a factor into some of the modifications that can throw off your speedometer. Continue reading
