My GT is definitely not limited to 135. They are limited to 155... I've been up there a few times. It'll let you go past the limiter a bit downhill so that's probably how he hit 159.
The 2015-17 Mustang GT cars are limited at about 164mph I believe.
2018-current Mustang GT cars are speed limited to 155mph
Something fishy about that story. The guy says a "Mustang GT will not go over 159", The Mustang pictured is a base GT. Those are limited to 135 mph.

How did he get it to 159 w/o a tune?

Kinda wonder what the top end of a 18+ GT A10 would be if the limiter was removed. Figure it's gotta be good for 165-170 (assuming it doesn't fly off the road, which it might).

It's not just about a Cannonball Run. It's about reckless driving. Wonder why Mustang's and their owners have such a great reputation? Car's & Coffee. Stupid, dangerous reckless driving.

As far as stupid ass comments are concerned, unless you are the owner of this forum, best that you not tell other people what to do. :angry:
Kinda like you telling people to not do cannonball runs. But I'm sure you never break any traffic laws. We all bought 400+ hp cars to just go the speed limit lmao

I can neither confirm nor deny a 167 mph governor.

Am I the only one who read the story and was wondering how he was able to whip it out and piss in a Poweraide bottle while driving? I can see someone doing this in some large SUV, but from the drivers seat of a Mustang???

Gatoraid bottle is easy, pepsi bottle, not so much.

If you've ever driven in the middle of nowhere, with absolutely nobody on the road, you've got 2-3 lanes to yourself. I'd figure if you've got cruise control on, and just find a way to keep it decently straight, it's possible with a larger mouth gatorade bottle, or something like a mega big gulp.

I mean, if you were really determined, you could replace the stock seat with a potty training seat, and just eat all you want. Offering, not pressuring.

"The Mustang GT will not go any faster than 159 miles per hour," he told Road & Track. "Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying."
That is what the guy said, I've gone 140 personally. But I really don't see how it can't go past 159 if you have the limiter off with a tune.

Next time use a catheter...no problem and no mess. What about poo? Did he shit his pants and wear a diaper? Or perhaps take an enema from hell and clear it all out before he left??

you don't need an enema. just ake a laxative or drink the barium stuff they give you before going in for a colonoscopy. You won't need to use the toilet for a several days. Who needs food when you're hopped up on jet fuel, er high test.

That is just awesome. Ultimate budget run.

This guy is a role model. Put your mind to it and do it.

Quite Impressive.
And with a little more money for a tuner might have been even faster.
