I just got a 2003 gt. Take my governor please. Any suggestions would help tremendously. Anybody please help me. I really don't know where to begin. What speed should the car top out at? what first?

The Governor is based on Tires that are equiped on the car when new. The Governor was installed because of tire limits. So it can range from 112mph and up. The federal limit for a pass. vehicle is 155mph which a manufacture can get a waiver to raise.

I don't have a clue why you're worried about the governor on the car. There's nowhere near you that you could even think about winding the car up that fast. Unless you get on I-85 in the middle of the night. Even if you did that you're being dumb.

Why do you sound so desperate to take the governor off? You should never need to go that fast

There are lots of open roads in Salisbury. But there is always at least a few cars around. I can't think of a single 'good' place to go that fast anywhere except on a track. I really do hope you get caught and you don't end up killing some innocent bystander.

Have to agree with BlueStreak03:

Speedig might be fun for some people, but there is ABSOLUTELY NO reason for it! If you kill some one or "just" make someone paralized - it is going to be a huge load on your shoulders. Mentaly and financially.

Is that really worth it?!

Welllll, I drive pretty conservatively but there was that one time on that long flat bridge and I was a little disappointed when the car stopped pulling at 140. But now that I know about the reason for that (tires) I figure it's agood thing. Besides 140 feels like 70 on a smooth road so what's the point?:rolleyes:

The point is that even though 140 FEELS like 70, the physics of a collision with anything equates to total destruction of not only your car ( and everyone in it ) and whatever you hit. Be it a rock, drainage ditch or another vehicle.

up to about 95 can feel like 70, 140 does not feel like 70. :sterb: I don't care what road you are on.

I also second what Blue Streak said, no offense, but you sound kinda immature. Learn some self-control before something happens to you and/or somebody else with your reckless urges.

How do you know what 140 feels like, or did you give into your reckless and immature urges?:laughlitt
