Now, this could be speculation, but it is a ford and they have been known to cut corners (cough, cough).

A 115 limit is pretty sad. Imagine the point-by's at the track!
The drive shafts have been known to fail around 130mph

Sometimes, I see cops with their backs turned writing tickets. When I drive by I can see them stick their heads up,and sniff the air,catching a whiff of exhaust and burning rubber,the crimson smell of speed,telling them a Race Red Mustang is somewhere nearby!
