I'd much rather drive in Germany at the speeds folks talk about here. Much safer.
Yep I could have taken my drivers test drunk and going backwards .. When I got done I asked him that's it and he was like yep u passed and I said wow that's to easy

Things have to be nerfed sometimes to protect the stupid, and in turn the general public

Lol. The younger owners of the 11 plus V6 models can easily spend $379 on a performance tuner and there goes the speed limiter.

My dad said he was going to put a limiter on my car, from the factory.
I smiled.

Not sure why people get the impression that young mustang owners are unsafe, risk-prone drivers. I'm young (22) and I'm aware I might not have years of experience some of you guys might have.

But as it stands, the car is more important to me (in the economical sense) than it is for you guys who have careers etc, so I'd argue that I take even less risks etc.

So what if the car can go 113mph, here in Canada that gets your car taken away immediately (lol). Save it for the track.

All of us here at ME save those high speeds for the track. Driving 140 mph on most U.S. public roadways would be illegal and we would never do those kind of illegal things. Those are naughty and dangerous ways!

I've got the performance package on my mustang. So the suspension is the same with upgraded braked. The tires that came with the package are rated at 180 or 190mph. Obviously, you need to show sound judgment when going at those speeds, but let's face it. Ford didn't put a trackapp on the car for nothing and don't give me that it's only for the track stuff. Racing tracks already have timers for that. They just didn't want to get sued.

And here's a little side note

If I want to go fast, on public roads, I don't go Tokyo drift.
It's when there's no one around.
