Im a new owner and I thought I was out of my mind when I run my car out the first time It has no mods yet. If you punch it at 110 and hold it it will drop to 3 and clime up to 130 at exactaly 5800 rpms. and when you let off the gas just like you guys said It will shift to 4 and slow down..

Yeah, it is nice to know that the car will keep you from going too fast!

I mean think about it - if you were to crash at 140 instead of 130 there would certainly be a lot more damage done!!! 10mph is a huge difference.:rolleyes::D I suppose that the limiter helps to protect the engine as well....

I managed to get the speedo up to 140MPH, I was running on a downhill section of Interstate though... The car handled very very well at that speed, so well it felt like we were just doing 80MPH, I guess the wide open space and endless horizon made it seem slower too...

...I wonder if I had a JDM Spec Combat Package and Whaletail Wing, do you think I could have taken off at such speeds????:eek:
