You should change the speed feature because it's arbitrary. I would suggest eliminating the above 70 MHP or weight it's score differently and focus more on the rate of acceleration I.e how long it takes to get to 70 or whatever speed and the rpms. In the city for example, you have all kinds of speed limits.

Greetings everyone! I have some exciting news regarding this idea: we've released the high speeds feedback threshold feature for the iOS app.

You can read more about how the feature works here. Keep in mind that for now your drive score is still impacted by how much time you spend over 70 MPH, regardless of your custom speed threshold. We’re already working on an update to address this issue, so stay tuned.

Please note that your firmware must have the latest version (0.9.7). Once you download the v2.0 of the app, you’ll need to connect to your Link and complete a trip before the feedback threshold will appear under the “High Speeds” menu.

Hi everyone. I have another quick update for this topic: the Custom High Speeds Threshold is now available for Android. You can read more about the feature in our blog post and this FAQ. Keep in mind that your Drive Score is still impacted by how much time you spend driving over 70 MPH. We are, however, working to refine how we calculate Drive Scores, and this will be addressed in a future update to the app.

Please note that this feature requires firmware version (0.8.64). Once you download v1.1 of the Android app, you'll need to connect to your Link and complete a trip before the feedback threshold will appear under the "Speeding" menu.
