I noticed when pushing it that hard (on the track only) the fuel gauge goes down almost as fast as the speedometer goes up :)

Road America in the spring I was touching 170mph going into #1. Probably could do more but oh my that is really moving.

I can only attest to a 2016 GT and a 2020 GT500 being limited to 155mph and 180mph respectively 😇

Does the GT, 350 or any of the late model Mustang have speed governors?
From the factory, the EU models are governed at 155,3 mph (250 km/h) the EU Bullitt at 163,4 mph (263 km/h*).

For US model, from experience with imported vehicles from the US, at least the vehicles without PP are governed at 124,2 mph (200 km/h), but maybe PP are, too.
It is possible to remove this governor, but I would recommend only for vehicles with 6-piston Brembo front.

*speedometer value, GPS should be little less

There's a point where he's at like 188ish and lets off for a sec, then gets on it again and it goes right back to 188 in a few seconds from 180. Car would easily do 200 with enough room and balls. Also the wing and front aero bits + rain tray out (which I assume this guy has done), is something like 400-500 lbs of downforce at those speeds if I remember correctly. That ain't gonna help your top speed runs lol.

Edit: 550 Lbs of downforce for the CFTP, 380ish for base with handling pack, at 180 MPH.
I agree. It hit 188 without trying and he let off. Something didn't add up to me.

I'd have to go back and look at the track addict app. I'll get back to you.

That looked fun for about 2 laps, I'd rather do the infield course.
I think the Rolex is Tomsters normal choice :like:

I had my 2016 GT350 at 177.4 and two others were approx the same. A 2017 R could only obtain 173 because of the additional down force. All of us were on a closed roadway in Texas.
