tino,
You did not say what sim this is for, if it is for GTL or GTR2 the values you need are in each cars individual .car files.

Look for the line that looks like this: HUDSpeedometerRange=(0.0, 350.0, 215.0, 315.0)

Hope that helps

its for gtl...i sorted the car to pe perfect for my driving style,it would be nice to se real top speed,cca 320 kmh. seen the line,tryed to overwrite with csl turbo lines,i imagined that same speedometer would work with same,but tuned,argh,downgraded to 480 hp for driveability engine..so,im stuck.....i figured out,that "new" spedometer actually works like one that shows 250 kph....also,tryed to manualy play with values,but no effect!?! unhappy... Suspect to be precise,needle goes to 360 kmh,sure,but it gets there too fast, ...so,range is good,bud the speed of the needle is the problem....im new at this,not an expert,but i would like to do it right,because,car handles surprisingly well.....after 3 day testing Sleep ,changing parts,er,lines,figuring out clutch,and my favorite,the four wheel drive try affraid ,that gave so much understeer,and tire smoke,it was maddening,and hillarious at the same time... Very Happy Embarassed

Well I can’t help you with physics or setting up your car, I think I can help with the gauges.

To calibrate the Hud Spedo the four numbers in the "HUDSpeedometerRange" work as follows:
The first number is the starting kmh of the gauge so it’s always 0
The second number is the max speed of the gauge, so in your case 360 kmh
The third number is the starting point of the needle when at 0
The fourth number is the amount of angle the needle will travel, and it is dependent on the first value.

Setting the start and end points for the needle can be a real pain; and can take a fair amount of trial and error to get it set just right.

As a general rule for the setting the beginning point of the needle; 0 = to the right at the 3 o'clock position, 90 = straight down at 6 o'clock, 180 = to the left at 9 o'clock, and 270 = straight up at the 12 o'clock position.

*Important* Always get the starting point set first as it Will affect the end point.
Also I would recommend only changing the number by no more than 10 each time to make it easier to track and close in on the correct position.

So for example - If the third number is 90.0, and the fourth number is 270.0, then the needle will do a semi-circle, and end up facing straight up.

Hopefully this will help
