Hey guys, when I bought my car it had those white dial insert put in the dash which u can get, the problem i'm having though is it has slowed down the responses of the speedo and tacho a hell of a lot, for example tacho barely gets to 3000-4000 rpms b4 im guessing im around 5000-6000, not that i always rev it that high but i just need to kno what revs and speed im doin when im doin them, any ideas?

Thanks

source another dash

also remove your dash and see if the white gauge is just laid over the old ones making it thicker which could affect the speeon needle speed.

Well finally got around to taking the dash cluster and had a look through it, nothing seemed out of the ordinary so all i can think is that they damaged the motors when they put the inserts in or something, so decided to source another dash when i got the spare $$$, i cant imagine they would be that much,
