Published: Dec 20, 2011
Description: So someone has just bought themselves a new 2011 Ford Mustang V6. With a respectable output of 305hp, it also has a factory set maximum speed. If you want more power and speed, then you'll need ...

why didn't he buy a one piece driveshaft?
Ryan Filkins Feb 14, 2012
Is there any way to remove the speed limiter without taking the risk of this happening?
Hank Austin Jan 16, 2012
Civics are limited to 125
Max Waite Dec 23, 2011
Lol my civic can cruise at 137 for as long as I have the balls to do so. So much for my desire for American cars. At least Corvettes don't pull this shit
Cody Andree Dec 22, 2011
G8 was sick. gto was sick to. Period.
Carlie George Dec 22, 2011
Wow this is "The battle "to keep it real Pontiac is a great company period .I would have got rid off vaxhall and Opel if I was gm ,and fords are weird they are extremely difficult to work on oh they didn't need a bailout cause they sold there name
P_R_N_D Dec 21, 2011
@Brandon GM paid the government back already.... with interest. Sooo... we tax payers MADE money off that deal.
Zach Cinkosky Dec 21, 2011
Keep in mind, people, that Pontiac was a lower-market brand than Buick or Cadillac. That's why it had to go. Lower margins on cars that they were also making for other marks.
Vincent Butler Dec 21, 2011
Well buying a v6 mustang or any American muscle v6 is pathetic.
Rueben J Yslas Dec 21, 2011
I like how my 2010 v6 camaro can easily get passed 140 and I've done it more than a few times. And these mustangs are limited below 135 how pathetic.
Scott Gracey Dec 21, 2011
Good acceleration on it but 135mph is pretty weak, surprised its not 150-155
Zain Sheikh Dec 20, 2011
My cousin's E92 came without a limiter so it can run upto 186 MPH . And we've gone upto 177 MPH on the garden state pkwy at midnight . I will never forget that day :)
Daoo Daodao Dec 20, 2011
Haha love reading same people arguing about the same thing in like 3 different sections.
Alex Cameron Dec 20, 2011
For doesn't have there own diesel it's made by international, but they're junk too
Ambrosio Aguilar Dec 20, 2011
Same parts as a camaro and a vette hmmm doesn't sound bad to me what killed Pontiac was their plastic cars like the Aztec not the GTO or g8 damn trolls
Vince DeMasi Dec 20, 2011
I own a 94 Pontiac trans am it's a daily driver and I take to the track some days hasn't let me down yet... And Pontiac was owned by gm alot of there cars were copies of Chevy cars so basically you guys are calling gm crap
Cody Andree Dec 20, 2011
Ps. Powerstroke is a heap. DMax all day long boys n girls. Had both chipped, fords diesal is junk.
Cody Andree Dec 20, 2011
As said before Brandon a 12 year old camaro z28 would easily hold it's own against ur precious slowmobile. Top speed is still above 155. And SS is 175. Hmmmm.
Cody Andree Dec 20, 2011
Brandon u r officially handicapped. But that's a nice way of saying it. Ur actually retarded. Very. Don't touch ur parents cars. And it 17? U don't even have a car hahaha. And v8 stang is limited to 155? What a piece.
Devin Babyn Dec 20, 2011
Yes there old cars were great but it's not the 70's there new products weren't good enough to stay competitive so stop bitching
Paul Lissona Dec 20, 2011
Dad likes pontiacs I never did, his had transmission and brake problems. Those are common problems for those.
Kevin Rehbock Dec 20, 2011
Only on Carbuzz will a Mustang article turn into a Pontiac debate, I thought the Autoblog community was the worst.
Brady Fereday Dec 20, 2011
Actually there old cars were and are amazing the gto the firebird and the g8 are sick cars yo
Devin Babyn Dec 20, 2011
Guys calm down Pontiac was a useless company if you miss them you have some horrid taste
Vince DeMasi Dec 20, 2011
@brandon please grow up and stop trolling
Brady Fereday Dec 20, 2011
That's a 350z sorry lots of Z's out there lol
Brady Fereday Dec 20, 2011
Lol I've done 155 in my Z an that's where it's governed but I don't think there's much more in her I was around 5k rpms when I was going that fast lol
Chris Bridgers Dec 20, 2011
They shoulda said screw the bailout the mustangs not a bad car, its been in production longer than the camaro. pontiac was by no means bad, however sales showed it needed to die
Greg Lewis Dec 20, 2011
Pontiac died because of the GTO. They epically failed the design, it was a make or break car. If the goat was a hit like the new muscles, Buick would of went instead. Damn you Pontiac! Now a kit for the camaro to turn to GTO... :D
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
Brandon, if it were not for f-ing liberals General Motors wouldn't exist. I'm a conservative, I would've let them die. If you can't compete you have no place in the market.
Kevin Rehbock Dec 20, 2011
Driveshafts are like tires. Different types handle certain stresses.
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
Brandon, if you think pontiac was killed off because it was inferior in some way you are completely clueless. GM had to kill it to get a bailout from the government. Do us all a favor and don't post until you at least finish high school.
Teddy MacDonell Dec 20, 2011
I have a mustang myself and I'm not defending them. some cars just aren't made for speed
Patrick Schalk Dec 20, 2011
Brandon is just butt hurt about this video and is taking it out on other cars that still stomp on Rustangs.
Teddy MacDonell Dec 20, 2011
yeah because during the recession gm didn't get enough bailout to save all of their brands. pontiac still made great cars including the car of the year g8
Teddy MacDonell Dec 20, 2011
Pontiac is the first brand to actually make a muscle car... don't know why you're trolling
Josh Sammons Dec 20, 2011
That's pathetic I hit 140 in the GTO with zero problems at all but that's a ford for you.Dont take them past factory specs
Justin Tucker Dec 20, 2011
I hate how the limit the speed of cars....if your gonna have a "sports car" I would sorta like to have its full potential. But NOOOOOO the stupid law unforced that.....I hate the law..nd cops
Kent Sullivan Dec 20, 2011
115 in my FJ Cruiser is the best I got before the speed governor kicked in haha
Chris Bridgers Dec 20, 2011
That car prob had a bad shaft, Ive seen people do 140+ in 90s mustangs and saw 1 2001 stang pushing around 350 rhp b4 the engine blew out.
Clint Edwards Dec 20, 2011
I've done 120 ish in my Cummins, that's pretty poor. I'd bet that driveshaft was off-balance before he started
Charlie D'Amato Dec 20, 2011
Pretty disappointing engineering. I had my Focus SVT with the Powerworks supercharger kit over 140 on a couple occasions. I also have gone faster in an 88 Toyota Supra. If a car has the power to reach 135mph the driveshaft should not fail at 135mph.
Description: To start with, it lost the driveshaft when it ripped into the floor pan, in addition to some major damage to the exhaust system and muffler, and a broken transmission shifter and parking brake. Oh yea...

Away the limiter, there's so much work to be done after that.
Jairo Garcia Feb 16, 2012
Dayyuuummm, how did he not hear he's car sounding all weird at 130.
Jeremy Brown Dec 22, 2011
I've done 120 in my stock 92 accord with over 200k and didn't have a problem (I was dumb an in HS) still have it with 266k and still runs like a champ and is still stock no dumb ass tunning or any of that shit.
Cody Andree Dec 22, 2011
Taking the limiter off isn't tuning Brandon. Is that what u do when u say u tune ur parents eclipse? Prolly not even a gsx. Had a 96 talon tsi. Rod bearing was pooched tho.
P_R_N_D Dec 21, 2011
I can't believe everyone laughing at this guy for taking the limiter off. I wouldn't have thought an extra few mph would have caused all that, and he prob didn't either. And maybe he can't fkn afford the v8. I feel bad for this dude.
Jesse Demasi Dec 21, 2011
@ Vincent someones clearly a fanboy of foreign cars and goes with the trends
Brady Fereday Dec 21, 2011

Usually if you're flooring your car and it starts to make crazy noises you let off the gas a little.
Vincent Butler Dec 21, 2011
I hit 135 in my 08 TL'S & it's Perfectly Fine. My interior didn't shred nor my car didn't Explode!
Kevin Rehbock Dec 21, 2011
After doing some math, the driveshaft is limited to 83% of its speed at which it gave out (112/135). Because of centripetal force, the stress it experienced is the square of the rotational speed, so at 112 mph, it's at 70% load. Because the stress is the square of its rotational speed, at 135 mph the driveshaft was put under 20% stress than it was engineered for. You can't beat numbers. For all th...
Dillon Dixon Dec 21, 2011
And I do recall camaros front plastic breaking when they first came out, if they went over 100mph.
Greg Lewis Dec 21, 2011
V6 challenger is limited to 138. Guess I have a better driveshaft? Hence the 10k lbs it weighs!! ;) and how bout the new camaro 6's what they designed for? Looks like ford is cutting corners to be the 0-60 champ...
Nicolas Blake Mullen Dec 20, 2011
Another reason this happened is because he's probably done this many times. This car is not BRAND SPANKING New, cause its got almost 18,000 miles on it. You never know what kinda dumb crap he did.
Nicolas Blake Mullen Dec 20, 2011
Brandon, your dumb. It didn't say anywhere the mustang was tuned........ Also, I've never heard anybody refer to a Camaro as a "maro" so quit trying to sound cool. G35's are not junk. You don't have 3 cars and you love to troll on this app.
Clay Higdon Dec 20, 2011
Look at yahoo news. A guy wins a a lambo crashes it instantly.
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
Checked out you tube. There's a lot of these V6 mustangs demolishing drive shafts. Brandon, don't comment. It's past your bedtime.
Axel Cousins Dec 20, 2011
Hahahaha!!!!!! Don't film and drive! Jk! That sucks!
Shane Jansen Dec 20, 2011
Whoa that didn't look to good. That actually doesnt sound to bad for a v6 as well.
Nick Espinoza Dec 20, 2011
Seems like Brandons trying to overcompensate... Just like this guy who owned the Mustang...
Morgan Dame Dec 20, 2011
Me and my dad did 150 in a maybach 57s
Clint Edwards Dec 20, 2011
@Chris thank you. It gets me when people say "all fords suck" or "every chevy is trash". Everybody's made a lemon. One car doesn't define an entire brand. Hell my Ram's knocking on 160K with not a peep wheras my buddy's Neon spilt the head at 90K
Clay Brewer Dec 20, 2011
I think both stupid driver and bad ford engineering P.s I don't like chevy It's dodge all the way
Jason W. Evers Dec 20, 2011
But my 360 ci pushrod engine dating back to the 60's has hit 7k rpm since the rev limiter has been removed. Not that difficult. And Brandon is a douche
Daoo Daodao Dec 20, 2011
He did what he was not suppose to do. I don't think that's bad engineering. That's just stupid driver.
Alberto Rajerno Dec 20, 2011
Ps. The interior parts fell apart because the driveshaft blew up under the cabin and probably went through the floor panel. Which probably destroyed the center console...which is plastic
Alberto Rajerno Dec 20, 2011
Uhm. U take the rev limiter out and hit 8k. In most cars the engine would have blown hitting redline like that Props to the engine withstanding that and luckily it was the driveshaft.
Clint Edwards Dec 20, 2011
Ahh, basking in the love and friendship here.
Shane Heid Dec 20, 2011
My nineteen year old thunderbird can do 165 on the stock shaft and rides smooth as glass an quiet.
Vincent Butler Dec 20, 2011
I would never buy An American Car. Imports for Life
Patrick Schalk Dec 20, 2011
Thanks Clay! I could write an article on it and post a couple vids. And then I can make some vids on my Sheep Strangler (Jeep Wrangler). That's what my friends and I call it.
Vincent Butler Dec 20, 2011
I hit 135mph in my 08 TL'S. My car didn't explode lol. Or my interior fall apart. Lolol
Danny Reed Dec 20, 2011
Duhhhh......I'm gonna do 135 in my Fiesta! Oh no wait thats stupid. I'll go buy a MUSTANG!!! Yeah! Now should I get the BOSS 302, the GT500, the GT, or...OH! OF COURSE! THE V6!!! Yes I is feelin smart today!
Paul Dickey Dec 20, 2011
I'm with Brandon. And just sayin a lot of you guys need to grow up and keep these comments about the cars and not people's personnel lives, and stop string so heated. Damn
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
Brandon, show your parents your previous comments about how fast you've had their vehicles. If they love you they will beat you until you can't sit down and pull your license until you move out.
Devin Babyn Dec 20, 2011
I love that you're comment was talking about reliability and then you say you like BMW
Clay Higdon Dec 20, 2011
Every article on here should be about Patricks camaro. Congrats man.
Paul Lissona Dec 20, 2011
Fords are usually the most reliable American vehicles, their trucks are always way better than gm especially. Another example crown victorias are really reliable. I like BMW and Honda the best but still.
David Gray Dec 20, 2011
@Brandon. Sshhh now pal, digging a big hole. Secondly, the car should be engineered to its actual top speed, not a limit set by the factory. This would ensure it is safe on the road. Even with clowns behind the wheel.
Kevin Rehbock Dec 20, 2011
I just realized he's holding a camera while going 120. The legal implications are piling high..
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
I put a K&N filter and sticker on my Frontier. I'm officially a tuner!
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Dec 20, 2011
This is why i call mustangs potes (spanish not auto correct)
Chris Bridgers Dec 20, 2011
I got that and a royal purple sticker, that means i got 20 more hp=P
Michael Palazzo Dec 20, 2011
@ Colin, are you daft? lots of cars can go 135+, not most lots tho. And I'm definatley not lying about going as fast my listed top speed is 155.....
Dillon Dixon Dec 20, 2011
I like how almost everybody that mentioned that their car can go that fast, has a v8 in it, not a v6. If he didn't take the limiter off, he wouldn't have this problem. It's not designed to run past that for long periods of time. Owners fault.
Jason Brower Dec 20, 2011
@Brandon, you're on the losing side of this. Prepare to be trolled out of existence. You obviously don't respect your parent's cars if you take them to those speeds.
Greg Lewis Dec 20, 2011
Patrick, sorry my 92 RS Camaro 5.slow with a mere 186k on it would stomp your bugatti killer! (I even have a flowmaster sticker on it)
Jason W. Evers Dec 20, 2011
One "kid" specifically I was referring to.
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
@Patrick, congrats on the fastest car in the world!
Vince DeMasi Dec 20, 2011
@patrick wanna swap your LS1 for my LT1? I would love to have an LSx car haha
Luis A Villalpando Dec 20, 2011
@ Kevin good point too many people seem to hate Ford for no apparent reason.
Riley McKelvie Dec 20, 2011
@ricardo, What?!! A car that can go more than 140? I honestly don't believe you. Fastest car in the world is Patrick's camaro
Patrick Schalk Dec 20, 2011
No Ricardo, I have the fastest car in the world. A 98 Camaro Z28 is faster than a Bugatti Veyron SS and Ultimate Aero.
Quinn Conner Dec 20, 2011
Wow people. It's the driveline that broke, NOT bad "tuning". Learn how cars work before you get on your "v8 is king" arguments.
Kevin Rehbock Dec 20, 2011
Why does Ford's engineering matter now? They did nothing but sell him the car. This idiotic owner did not know the limits of his car until it was too late. Bashing Ford all day makes you guys sound stupid.
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
No kid here, I'm 42 and have owned a lot of different vehicles. Brandon, if my kids ever assume that the vehicles I've bought and paid for are theirs simply because they're parked at my house they will never drive them again. Typical spoiled kid.
David Gray Dec 20, 2011
@Cho. So glad to have found someone on here that doesn't just big up ZR1s and actually knows what they talkin about! I love arguing with some of the idiots u find on here
Ricardo Rodriguez Dec 20, 2011
@Patrick you're wrong obviously not the fastest car there's car that do almost twice 140mph the hennessey venom GT top speed 275mph that's the manufacturer claim though we still need to see the test.
Teddy MacDonell Dec 20, 2011
this car was not engineered by ford to go that fast. that's why the limiter was put on it. I don't think there's any problems with the car or with ford because of this
James Jay Putnam Dec 20, 2011
Fords engineering is really good look at the size of engine compared to the maro smaller and more hp that's not easy
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
@David, that's my point exactly. You think M3, you think all around performance from the intake to the exhaust tips, no weak points. The car is designed and built to handle the power period. Ford needs to detune the engine or upgrade the drivetrain.
Patrick Schalk Dec 20, 2011
Colin my Camaro has done 140 no problem. How weird. I guess my car is the only one in the world that can go over 135 without imploding! I have the fastest car in the world!!!
Jason W. Evers Dec 20, 2011
Lol kids driving their parents' cars and talking big...pathetic. MY old '92 318 Ram did 120, but that was dumb as hell and almost 15 years ago. Stuff happens.
David Gray Dec 20, 2011
Colin my M3 does 155 no tuning, no problem
Colin Barr Dec 20, 2011
Also: mustang has been beating the Camaro in comparison tests both years of it's return. Also no surprise. Dont believe me, read Motor trend, car and driver, road and track, they all say it, or YouTube
Colin Barr Dec 20, 2011
This isn't my fanboy side speaking, ford is the best American company, beating Chrysler and GM year in and year out. F150 just won truck of the year. No surprise. So don't say ford has bad quality and engineering you guys are the worst
Colin Barr Dec 20, 2011
I swear this app is bias. And all these chevy fanboys do is hate instead of look at the facts. Every car has it's limits. Don't say it should be able to handle 135+ without tuning. No car can, and if you say yours can you're a liar.
David Gray Dec 20, 2011
There's no mention of any tuning done by the owner Brandon. All he's done is taken the factory speed limiter off, simple job. Cho you are completely right, my point exactly
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
Brandon, what do you know? In another post you said you can't wait till you're 18, but in this post you say you've had YOUR tundra over 120, YOUR Lexus over 140, and YOUR eclipse over 120. Are you lying or did you win the lottery?
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
Brandon, what about pointing out the inferior quality of the materials that ford chose to make this thing out of is un-American. Products like this are what gives America a bad name. For what it cost this car should NEVER break.
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
What's tuning got to do with a u-joint disintegrating? The car comes stock with 305hp, the drive train should be engineered to handle the power.
Jesse Demasi Dec 20, 2011
Damn that sucks a lot. I got my trans am up to 135 @3500 rpms and my car was running so smooth probably because my car is set up right I feel like this guy didn't do it right at all
Michael Palazzo Dec 20, 2011
Hahaha I've gone that fast in my V6 2010 Camaro without altering anything and the ride is smooth with no problems.
Teddy MacDonell Dec 20, 2011
this is almost as stupid as people with stock v6's trying to burnouts without upgraded drive shafts.. don't do what your car can't handle
Ryan Chavez Dec 20, 2011
I have an 02 GT and I've taken it to 145 more than once, with over 100,000miles she took it very well no vibrations at all

Natalino Monastra Dec 20, 2011
Damn it, I wanted to see more
Luis A Villalpando Dec 20, 2011
Ford is not crap, Mustangs don't suck, and some people are true idiots! How do people do such stupid things? Really idiotic what this guy did. Oh and if you want a fast car just get a Roush Mustang, I've taken mine up to its limit no problem
Scott Lenahan Dec 20, 2011
push a performance car not a v6.. you don't get one to break the sound barrier.. get the gt500 for that.
David Gray Dec 20, 2011
Poor engineering. If the car is capable of that speed, the components should be built to take it. Putting a limiter on it isn't a safeguard cos they can be taken off easy. Guy should've also realised summin was up at 130 n stopped accelerating
James Himsel Dec 20, 2011
Id like to see you take a V6 camaro and do the same stuff this guy did. Or even a V6 challenger. When you do stupid things to a car, bad things are gunna start happening.
Nathan Curtis Dec 20, 2011
I'm a lover of all cars, but ford has some seriously crappy stuff. I don't like ford. And don't call me a Chevy fanboy.
Chris Bridgers Dec 20, 2011
The cars great, it obvious wasnt tuned correctly. Any car will get destroyed if abused. Mustangs sure as hell aint cheap, my 96 has no issues. minus needing new knuckles.
Josiah Thomas Clements Dec 20, 2011
@brandon: you failed to realize That the interior started falling apart at 135mph... That's beyond pathetic. That is why I will never buy a ford. Shoddy engineering. And no, I'm not a chevy fan either. I'm simply explaining why this car is junk.
Danny Tran Dec 20, 2011
Cheap pos Even the interior started falling apart? Wtf
Clint Edwards Dec 20, 2011
That was pretty funny. Serves him right for buying a V6 mustang
Ivan Rudnitsky Dec 20, 2011
What a cheap car. My g35 can hit those speeds no problem.
Mathew Caleb Stanfield Dec 20, 2011
Lol this exactly why I would never buy a ford. He broke the car doing exactly what most people wanna try to do in this kind of car
Adam Sampson Dec 20, 2011
So 2 options here: 1 - Ford's engineers bought their degree's online and hence have no understanding of a safety factor, or 2 - This is a poorly made piece of junk. Hmmmmm...
Jason W. Evers Dec 20, 2011
That thing accelerated much faster than I was expecting. Impressive.
Dale Schroeder Dec 20, 2011

Vince DeMasi Dec 20, 2011
It is a mustang V6 what was he thinking
Cho Dan Dec 20, 2011
Why would ford give a car 305hp and limit the speed to 145mph? Answer: because the car is made out of junk and will disintegrate at that speed.
Ruhel Zaman Dec 20, 2011

There are some truly idiotic people who own all kinds of cars, not just Mustangs. To those who say that the parts can't hold together @ 135-145 well the speed itself is not what did it, the vibrations from the malfunctioning part did the damage
Ori Haviv Dec 20, 2011
Mustang owners are not smart
Boyd Boudreaux Dec 20, 2011
Yeah I bet he had to change his draws, but damn really sad that the mustangs parts can't hold together at 135 to 145. What happen to under rating, parts should be tested to higher standard.
Vincent Butler Dec 21, 2011
Patrick I love the 2000 cobra. My friend Had his supercharged 600hp. God I literally shit my oants
Greg Lewis Dec 21, 2011
I side with patrick. Ford has gotten sloppy. I owned mustangs, camaro's and now a challenger... and never had this issue. Ford is cutting corners. GM make me a GTO CONVERSION KIT! And I'll be buying a camaro next
Patrick Schalk Dec 20, 2011
Wow you must surround yourself with good people. I've met a lot douchier people than me. I like very few Stangs. But one of my favorite cars ever is the 03-04 Cobra. Don't get your panties in a bunch.

But the Mustang with it's archaic technology bests the Camaro in almost all tests and has a nimbler, livelier feel.

Where? I see nothing, please explain

If you take a look at the very front of the car in the center you can see the problem.

A lot of people are driving their cars to 200,000 miles now more than before.
Patrick Schalk Dec 21, 2011
Nicolas, that's still a brand new car. You seriously think 18k is a lot?
Vince Cassi Dec 21, 2011
The Shelby's will probably go up to 300 mph :P
Greg Lewis Dec 21, 2011
Failure in 3...2...1...
Nicolas Blake Mullen Dec 20, 2011
The car has almost 18,000 on it.....
Shane Jansen Dec 20, 2011
And the GTs speedometer probably stops at 200 or so, and the 2013 Shelby like 240. Most cars show like 30 more mph than the car is capable of.

Why have the gauges read 160 if it's limited to 112? This isn't a GT.
