Stopped me at 120. Dang. Accelerated to about 109 petty quickly, 109 to 120 was slower than expected but still strong. Cut me off at 120 even. 120 was like going 60 is most cars, butter smooth. 0-60. 7.16 seconds. Very nice


In the last 10 minutes my MPG average went from 20.1 to 18......self inflicted

Governor speeds limiter depends also on which tires (speed rated) came with the car when factory delivered.
On my 11 crew with standard 18" and Michelin lattitude was set at 110mph

OK, here's the buzzkill from Pop-pop. Anyone taking selfies at 140+ mph needs some enforced/mandatory time alone to contemplate his stupidity. Getting deep into the triple digits on public highways should be severely punished, even in Montana.
BTW, yes, I have often exceeded the posted limit on the public highways, even into triple digits. Luckily, I was cured of that stupidity in my 20s when a friend lost control doing about 115 in a souped-up '57 Chevy. He over-corrected and we did several 360s on the road before coasting into a ditch. It was about 2:30 a.m. and alcohol was involved. No damage, except to our underwear.

Yeah, didn't know he recorded it. Found it randomly one day on YouTube. We were on I95 way outside of Vegas and no traffic. We slowed down when we came up on vehicles.

My '12 Citadel tops out at 110. I'm going to sell my HT. I'm having more start/stall issues (not related to the HT) so I need to take it in to get it fixed anyway...then maybe the Diablo.

After reading some of these posts, I'm sure someone is not going to like this, but last week on the way to the hosiptal, I got my Durango up to 135, with the digital limit. Truck behaved fine.... I didn't care about the speed limmit, had to make sure I didn't mis the birth of my second son....... Long story short, Everyone is ok, my healthy baby boy was born, I found out my Durango has more ***** than I thought (it's an R/T) and I didn't get a ticket. It was 3am so that helped out a lot as well.

Absolutely worth the risk in this case. Congrats man!!

As you can see...113 (also my old badge number), undocumented...123, downhill. Waiting to upgrade the tires before I find ways to remove that #)*$ING limiter. Just opened up the exhaust so I will see what the 0-60 time is. I'm guessing upper 7s. Anyone have any suggestions on how to improve this? OH and CONGRATS 91DakBuilder!!!

Thanks guys, I don't normally drive that fast, but desperate times and all.... I try to save the speed for the track honestly. That is what the 91 is being built for.

Congrats on second son. Having 4 kids I can understand the need for speed on that occasion. Do you have a tuner on it that let you go past the limiter?

idk if any of you guys have the 3.6L but got mine up to 110 last night on a quiet road around midnight and after 110 the car would just hold there and not go anymore. lol so i guess the v6s are limited too 110mph!
