FAO 172 owners

I recently had to call the RAC out to fix my car. The RAC mechanic also owned a 172 and was chatting away about my car. He told me something new which I cant believe I had not noticed. On the dash there is a green gear stick symbol which lights up when you turn on the ignition. Apparently this iluminates when you hit a certain amount of revs for the optimal gear change....

anyone else know about this??

Have your ever noticed how when it hits the limiter its like you hit a brick wall.
