other than reasons that apply to every other car, why is 100+ in a V6 a bad idea, several people tell me to not do that
just thought i'd point out, the V6 convertibles do have subframe connectors. :scratchchin100 mph+ in any car isn't a good idea with any car on the street...but preaching aside..
As the base model, the V6 Mustang doesn't have the proper equipment to handle that speed and keep you safe. I'm not entirely sure, but I think the stock tires are rated at 115 or 120 mph, meaning that your tires may not handle those triple digit speeds.
And if you're not going in a straight line, the V6 lacks a rear sway bar, subframe connectors, or anything else to prevent the car from severe under/oversteer.
It's not to say that the V6 isn't capable of it with a few minor mods, but a lot of us don't recommend it unless it's on a track to keep you and others safe. :bigthumbsup
He has a coupe. I win by default. :hihi:just thought i'd point out, the V6 convertibles do have subframe connectors. :scratchchin
but still...driving that fast is dangerous. if your tires are in less than perfect shape, or you run over something in the road and blow out a tire, the only question is which side of the road are you going to end up on. :so
Potentially yes the motor could spin the wheels that fast but realistically the stock v6 doesn't have the power to overcome the friction and wind resistance to achieve that speed. Not to mention the stock tires would probably shred around 125-130.i THINK,, that with the stock gears, no limiters, and some extra torque that the v6's would redline at about 155. ive heard that they hit the limiter  at about 3k rpm in 4th, and also someone hit 135 at about 4k rpm, so it would make sense that at the redline [5k rpm] the car would be going 155.
