I have never had my car cutt-off at 115mph or 118mph or what ever the cutt-off really is.One night me and my friend are crusing down 95,and he is like how fast is this car? So i floor it,quickly i get to 115mph expecting a cutt-off,but it keeps on goin.I hit 120mph and was like jesus this thing is fast,i'm lookin at my speedo seein that the arrow is bouncing back and forth,and as i was petal to the metal i was deff. going faster and faster than 120mph :bigsmile:

Only about 120mph!!! I went over 135mph for over 2 miles on my friends Yamaha RD500YPVS. As to what my trep will do I have no idea and do not really care its quite fast enough and I would not want to mess my car up.

Speed limiters are usually there because of the speed rating on your tires. I know on the new Grand Prixs, GT1 and GT2, they cut out at like 120 or so. I have a GTP Comp G that comes with V rated tires, so there is no limiter there. I know it can go over 140 before hitting a limiter.

generally, but the police package intrepids aren't limited and have a top speed of 135, but they also have the tires to handle it
The police package Intrepids ARE limited to like 120MPH or so..............the tires they use are H??? rated I think.

Intrepid R/T's aren't though and are capable of speeds over 140MPH ;) (I wouldn't know about that though ;) )

I wonder what Michigan State did to their police Treps before testing them? Their test results shows 135MPH top speed over a 2 mile (?) run ...

I am a police officer and my department has a 2003 police package intrepid. I have had the car to 135mph responding to calls with no problems. The police package units do not have a limiter and use Goodyear Eagle RS-A+ tires

I wouldn't think the police package cars would be limited. If so, why would they need 150mph speedos? Wouldn't make sense to me...
