My friend topped his 5.0 out on the way to SEMA show in Vegas this last fall... With no speed limiter.. So I'm guessing 160-170ish.. Still driving the car w no issues and he's REALLY hard on it too (he's like 19 or 20)...

Yeah, I wouldn't suspect the focus could travel 140 based upon the type of vehicle it is. Its kind of silly to have a speedodometer in a focus that reads 140 but that's just me. Im not really sure of too many people trying to go 100 plus in a focus.

But a real shocker about the mustang . Because people who buy mustangs drive them like a focus. Mustang owners don't drive there cars fast, they don't race them. They drive them like its a smart car. Slow and steady. Someone who has a sports car, mustang at that trying to drive 135. Wow that's a shocker there. I can't believe someone would think a 305 hp sports car would have an unsafe driveshaft that couldn't handle 135 mph.

Really, then why does Ford make the 5.0 go up to 145. Is that safe. Is that legal in the US. Is that needed? Why doesn't Ford design a car to only go max 85. No need for higher speed here in the good old USA.

Why did Ford produce a gt500 that goes 200 mph. Is that safe. Ill tell you why. Because its customers want fast. That's why.
