Default Shutter speed User Mode

So currently I am assisting in setting my fathers camera up for high speed action photography (radio control cars). We are having a slight hiccup due to the fact that when set up so U1 is in TV Mode, when the camera starts up it always defaults to a 1/125 shutter speed, where my father would rather it default to a 1/1000 shutter speed in order to freeze the action as soon as the camera is booted up. Does anyone know how to set a default shutter speed in TV mode? Thanks in advance guys!

Sure. Set the camera to Tv mode, set the shutter speed to 1/1000th, then walk through the following steps in the menu (I'm translating it back from Dutch, so the exact menu phrasing might be subtly different):

-> save USER settings
->save settings
