Before I modified my Monte Carlo it had the normal 112 limiter. Have you ever been in a race where you couldn't catch someone cuz of your limiter kicking in? This guy was in a late 90's mustang gt. I think stock other than being ridiculously loud. We raced and he got ahead once we hit a 100. Then was ahead for like 2 miles and I was like no way is this happening. I didn't want him to think he had won so I followed him on a little but till the road came to a corner causing us to slow down. Once thro the corner I was back on him going about 40 then hit gas and just smoke by him with ease. I was happy I could prove my point lok

No never been in that situation racing. That would suck to not win because of the factory settings. Nice you recovered and pulled away...

Haha yeah I am careful. Just love the feel of street racing. Usually only race up to the speed limit or a few over but we were only ones on road and figured ehh why not

I've never had the factory limiter make me lose a race but then again that was one of the first things to go on turbo Monte and my daily driver is a 2013 focus st which don't shut off till 155mph from factory so I'm good there lol.

The MCF in no way shape or form approves or promotes, condone's any kind of street racing ... Don't do it!!

However, Jason.. (Maniac)
Can However, remove the speed limiter... There for allowing your Monte to run full out. Feel free to contact him or check out his post.

We (MCF) do however, Recommend if you want to race... Please Race at the track...
