cutting out and dodgy speedo?

Evenin guys, I've been having a few probs wit my V4 type r. When I'm about to pull off (clutch biting point) my car will stall. As it does this the speedo goes erratic.
It is only an intermittent problem, but very annoying. some times if i build the revs a little higher i can make the speedo dance but it if the needle gets to over 180 it cuts out!!??
I've checked my fault codes a couple of times and its not showing up anything.
Thinking it could be something to do with the speed sensor, but it runs fine as soon as I'm moving and the speedo keeps a accurate reading. Any thoughts on this would be gr8. Thanks

Re: cutting out and dodgy speedo?

the speedo drive is on the top of the gearbox, to left as u look from the front,
Its mechanical on some and electronic on others,
I have a spare electronic drive if urs is that type but id have a good look first,
If its mechanical the cables can wear over time.
