Re: For all owners wk2

BTW, the specs show the V6 electronically limited to 6400 rpm incidently also the hp peak. The same subroutine could limit the top speed to the OEM tire rating (my 17" Goodyears are T rated - 118 mph/191 kph - but the spare is H - 130 mph/211 kph). What are the other OEM tires ?

Re: For all owners wk2

On my V6 it go to 112mph before it shuts down to 109mph. Not sure what that translates to KPH but that is what it is in the States. Not sure what it is on the Hemi

Some quick ciphering using my fingers and toes believes 112 mph is equal to 180.24 kph.

Re: For all owners wk2

On my Hemi, it kicks in at 120 MPH.
I've only done it once, the main reason is if you are caught doing 50 kph (30 mph) over the speed limit here in Ontario, you get hit with a "Racing Charge" which means you lose your vehicle immediately, lose your license, and pay up to $10,000 fine.
Its just not worth the risk.

Wow. If we had that law here in NY we would have a lot fewer cars on the roads. But that may explain the reason I see so many Ontario plates flying by me here.
