Default Speed limiter bypass "key trick"

I heard this from a guy who used to have an '04 hemi... you can bypass the speed limiter without using a tuner by turning and holding the key in the start position while driving. it has a block off so it wont turn the starter but it will cut the seat belt lock, speedo, blower motor, radio... and maybe some other stuff i cant remember... but it also cuts the speed limiter!
he said he had his truck up to 130 with no tuner by doing this...
obviously this is very dangerous because it cuts the power to the seatbelt lock but... has anyone ever heard of this??
anyone wanna try it?

It's also dangerous because you take a hand off the wheel to do it.

All safety considerations aside, I've tried it and it works - but I have no GPS to confirm speeds.

I bypass my speed limiter with a Superchips.

dont know if it will work on an '02... i know it works '03-'05 hemi
yeah... taking a hand off the wheel is another good point... i wonder if you could get over the SC limit of 140 by doing this?

Not gonna lie these trucks really do not belong anywhere over 110 to 120 mph. Its just ****ing retarded IMO unless you are running capable tires and enough braking force to scrub the speed off of a 2 or 3 tone brick moving at triple digits.

i've hit 110 with a lot left... i dont have any desire to go any faster than that... but you never know, if the cops are chasing you and you need that little extra speed boost... just turn the key and away you go. lol

What a great idea!
Sounds like a good way to eliminate a few pesty gene pools that have otherwise avoided the natural selection process.

"I leave it to you greg, is this not a infringement of our american way of life?" lol
Can you guess the movie? I'm a little nuts, but I'm not that nuts. 110 is my limit.

Why would you even WANT to go 120+ and try this? If something went wrong even at the slightest level they would be picking up pieces of you. At that speed with a 3 ton truck even if your wheel got snatched just a little you would be phucked.

But I tell you what.......you try it, video record it and we will watch you either succeed or fail.

The one where he thought it was a blown tire, and not his own idiocy?

Lifted trucks yes, I don't think they should ever even come close to breakin the 100mph mark, but something like a 3/5 lowered with the proper speed rated tires. I don't see the issue there, SRT's can do it all day long and their not much different than us up front. In fact we can basically install their suspension up front and run it just fine, it's no different that professional racing. Even then the slightest twitch of the wheel or jerk and your f**ked it's a matter of bravery I guess.

Get up to 120 and turn the key.... uh.... no.... dont think so

I know a few people who have done it and had it work but there is no way Im getting up to those speeds and then losing my focus on the road to turn the key and see if it works. My DSP can raise the limiter up to 190mph (not that I'd ever take it up that fast to test that limiter) so why even bother to try it. Also I dont see a point in doing this with a stock truck, and lets face it a new exhaust and CAI is most definitely still a STOCK truck with a STOCK tune.

Thats the vid. And had he not been trying to show off and do idiotic things he would not have wrecked and flipped an SRT or any other truck/car. He was too young to be driving his dads 500hp 8.3L 5spd truck.

Thinking he blew a tire and blowing one are two different things. That truck was too much for him and it got away from him.

Yup - 500 hp, wheelspin and anti-lock brakes.
He prolly panicked, stomped the middle peddle to save himself, the ABS detected wheelspin, backed off on brake line pressure - rendering his brakes useless, ond over he went.

Aside from ruining a beautiful truck, I laughed at him.

well i have used that key trick once before. i raced a toyota tundra and we were both governed out and his govern was just a little faster than mine it was about 170km/h and then i turned the key forward and started to pass him i couldn't see how fast i was going the only thing that worked was the rpm guage.
