Has anyone else noticed that the stopwatch on their clock stops at 19Min59sec59tenths? Then it starts over at zero?! I saw something about this a long time ago on the net, and someone's humerous explanation was "that's how long it took the engineers to repair a broken birfield on the trail", so that's what they determined the length of the stopwatch to be!! :D

I forgot to ask, why do you think it's like that?

I would think your LUXURY Lexus would have one?!! I don't know, but my plain 'ole 92 has one, it's part of the clock. :p

Hey Doug, I was just showing my wife pics of your Lexus on Armando's photo page!! I was also looking at used LX450's on Autotrader.com, and I don't know why, but there's some that affordable, (16K and under)! What's up with that?

They messed up. They wanted it to be 1min 59sec ... . They were trying to figure out how much time you would need if you were getting busy in the truck and figured that should be sufficient.

I actually discovered the real reason that the stop watch stops just shy of 20 minutes awhile back in my 3FE powered '92.

After engaging drive, left foot braking, and simutaneously tipping in the throttle I released the fury of the 3FE. I started the stop watch as I released the brake. All 4 mud terrains clawed at the tarmac, leaving four smokey tracks. At the 60mph mark, I stopped the clock and was amazed to discovered that it read 19:59! That is the real reason. Just enough to time your 0-60's! :D

If memory serves it is because of the led orientation in it. notice the 1 in 19:59 is just a straight line and there is not 0 in its position in under 10.
therefore:
there is no other crystals for make the 1 into 2 or 3 or................................................................
have to admit im with upcruiser though.
