Re: Speed Limiter

'spozedly there is a speed limiter for US A4's, set at 130mph, claimed due to
tires, US liability and tort law may have something else to do with it as well.
i suspect the germans know that not only are we bad drivers, but that we also
like to find someone else to blame for it.

there is also a rev limiter.
the chip makers typically delete the first and delete or up the second.
since this is a chip function, it would have to be burned into the PROM, and no
dealer could do that even if they would, which they wouldn't.

haven't tried top speed since getting my car & chip.  although i believe tire
speed ratings to be fairly conservative don't want to test the bounds of my nice
new Hakka 1's which are _not_ exactly built for speed.
