Being outrun by a Mitsi-Outlander-NOT COOL!

I really hate to tell this, but this morning on my way to work, I was minding my own P's and Q's, and one guy driving an Outlander passed me on the highway. I was doing 75MPH, but wasn't enough for him.
I felt angry and floored my pedal to unleash my Hemi up to the sixth gear. Couldn't get him! Why? Easy! My dumb "Limited" has a speed limiter to 110 MPH. And isn't that she couldn't pass that point, but it limits your top speed to that! It sucks! When we will get a programmer to get rid of the speed limiter? Men, I wish it to be in January 2013!

Re: Being outrun by a Mitsi-Outlander-NOT COOL!

Well, my Hemi did at 110MPH and I was going straight on the valley no hills or bumps. I'm kind of intimidated by every car that passes me! Really a trauma!

Re: Being outrun by a Mitsi-Outlander-NOT COOL!

The only jeep i would feel safe doing 110 in is an SRT.

If I had to guess at it. Id say his is a 12. My laredo when it was stock was limited at 110MPH, and it felt like it had more to give. When I got rid of it I hit 125mph and after some more mods it was breaking 130 and was still pulling. I could hav barried the speedo.
