Momentum cannot be the explanation. At best, you maintain your original speed via momentum. Your speed does not increase. More likely, you lose speed gradually from frictional losses bleeding down...

I think that is the problem, right there (for the pre-2015 models with speed sensing on the rear wheels)...it's such a close margin to hit 60 in 2nd, you either have the next shift timed perfect, or...

I'm talking about metal vs sidewall being 1" on each side of a circle...18" vs 20". 1 + 18 + 1 = 20

I have a feeling alignment specs are far less glamorous a process than people make it out to be. They aren't customized for each model, as some might suspect. The lower the car is, the more static...
