I've pegged the speedo and glitched out the speed reading on my 7.3. That's about just as sketch.

Glad I don't have a sunroof. I keep bugging Mike to raise my speed limit. Why lock it at 140?

While not fun, I can think of a couple reasons. I'm not an expert in aerodynamics, but I'm fairly sure a truck of any type, or bricks, don't create much if any downforce and it's simply their heavy selves that keep them on the ground at silly speeds. Then there are the tires and the centripetal forces at that speed...doubt there are any engineered to hold the kind of weight a truck is capable of while simultaneously able to sustain the forces created at that kind of speed. That's the logic portion...the reality is lawyers. Fvcking lawyers killing your d@mn fun.

Surprisingly, my truck was stable at that speed. I need to make a wing for the back lol.

Super car manufacturers spend a lot of money to put thousands of pounds of downforce on a car that goes 200, so you probably have a good point. I'd love to see one of these pigs in a wind tunnel at 200... I bet it's a sight to behold.
