Re: Speed Limiter...
That's what I love about my two non-computerized trucks, the only two speed limiters I have are the mechanical limits of the equipment, and the limits of my courage (or stupidity in the case of driving the 'burb much over 90 even though it handles and rides great at those speeds and gets there insanely fast for a vehicle it's size... Not that I've ever done such an insane thing, however... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img])...
Speed limited at 65??? Yikes! That sounds more like a mechanical problem than a speed limiter... That's definitely weird, only an idiot designer would put a 65 mph speed limiter in a truck that will go almost twice that without the limiter [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I don't think you have a regular speedometer cable, do you? I would assume it's just a sensor that tells the computer every so often and it calculates from there. If that's the case about all you could do is get the computer reprogrammed (or there is one product I read about before, not sure who makes it, but it plugs into your computer and your tranny connector I think, and you can adjust this thing to what size tires you have and it makes corrections, as I recall, it also lets you control your shift points, whether you want hard shifts or smooth ones...)...
If I am elected President, all paved roads will be abolished, and we will have to drive everywhere we would like to go off road... There will be several different obstacles on the different roads every 2-4 weeks, just so the same obstacle and road won't get boring... How's that for a political campaign?
