Sorry about the huge and out of focus picture but I had it on medium res, it was a little bumpy and I was holding the camera and the steering wheel at the same time. The guy in the 6 speed Ranger from the DupliColor booth can confirm these speeds along with a few others that were running with us. NO, I don't do this on a regular basis. Just had to show that bad ass Ranger what was up. And yes, that Ranger was fast. I think it had a supercharged 4.6 in it but I'm not sure.

Well, let's put it this way: Real good lawyer. I finally went to court just over a week ago. Keep in mind I got the ticket May 5 and the court date was on the 17th of this month. When my lawyer first talked to the prosecuting attorney they were going to give me 21 days in jail and 200 hours community service.

He finally negotiated it down to 250 fine.

Well, they put that on so your tires don't blow. I think the stock tires are rated at 96 or something. Someone was telling me the only reason they put the limiter on is because of this reason.

Yes, it is true that the speed limiters are put on because of speed ratings for tires; they are also put on cars due to federal laws. On the tire thing, it is really nothing to worry about. For instance if you have a tire that is speed rated to 116 mph that rating is not a peak rating. You could probably safely go 150 or 160 on those tires for a few minutes. That rating is achieved by testing the tire for a period of time (a minimum of 3 hours continuously) and then determining a safe rate for it.

So if you are worried about hitting 100 and your tires disentigrating, don't sweat it. Not going to happen.

The one people that really get screwed over this is the people that buy F bodies. You can opt to get a low speed rating tire (s or v) or a high speed rating tire (z speed rating) when you purchase the car new. A lot of people are tight and don't want to spend the extra money to get the Z rated tires so they get the crappy 118 mph speed limiter. The people that get the Z rated tires have NO speed limiter. A friend of mine found this out the hard way. He bought a Z28 used and it had Z rated tires. Unfortunately, it didn't come with them when the car was delivered to the dealer. He was pretty ticked when he took it out one day to see how fast it would go; it pulled hard till the speedo hit almost 120 then fell flat on its face.
