Thanks! I'll do that next time, although it never complained.

If it is soft you probably didn't feel anything but I always felt the binding when turning get off with it in 4hi.

The SCT X3 allows you to raise the speed limit, but I haven't touched it.

LOL, it's all good, you aren't the Lone Ranger, I'm sure it will happen again. It just seems to be happening more often recently.

Besides, you gave me a perfect excuse to break out some different smilies!

I figure my user name would really keep it from happening, or when I sign my name to every post, but it doesn't.

Maybe I should sign each post in oversized font, eh?

As far as the speed limiter goes. You can have no limit if you like with SCT X3. Although pushing 90 mph in the X as heavy as it is it feels light at 90! Maybe it's just me.

I've had my truck up to 220 km (136mph) and it handled very well. As long as you keep steering components tight it handles very well

Sounds like fun, GB. Get that Stang running better and race against your wife. Let her win every once in a while. You'll want her support when you break out the checkbook to go even quicker. You'll be able to run high 13s when you get your routine down with your setup. More than that and it'll cost you some coin. Have fun!

I'm sure Matt tuned out the limiter on the SRL. My stock limit is 93 mph. Your trap speeds are consistent with your rig.

Probably so, I just haven't reached the limit yet, so that's good The fastest I've had it is at the track.

Yes, mine handled the speed well. It does need ball joints though!

WOW!!! I'd bet it would roll for quite a ways if it was to blow a front tire out at 136 mph!

Without a significant rollbar installed, I'm too leary to get up over 90 mph... Running an Ex that fast gets a whole lot of Metal n' Motion!

That's prettty awesome. There's a guy here that drags his Cummins 4x4 Dually. His last run was 12.08@112mph with a 1.6@60'. It's far from stock and is great to see peoples jaws drop when something that big goes that fast!
