Reving in Neutral - Speedo moving.

When I Rev my M6 in neutral the car alarm (beeper) goes off because it shows the speedo moving.

It goes up to almost 10mph

does any one else have this issue?

It may just be a rev-vibration peculiarity, but since the speedo-pickup is at the transmission it may be sensing something there?

thats strange, 76 Camaro should be a gear/cable speedo system, in which case if the gear in the tailshaft moves, your car would be moving, no way around it unless of course the back wheels are off the ground
