Mostly stock focus on real street tires, not even DOT race tires. Camera car is a near stock SVT. Still think your car isn't fast enough for the track?

Huh? I hit the rev limiter on a nearly stock Focus with of the straight still left to go at Roebling Road. I have seen the maps; the ECU starts messing with the timing as soon as you hit triple digits. You don't hit the speed limiter, you slowly bump up against it. A stock Focus is fast enough for a road course, believe me. I am the yellow car in this video:




If you don't hit the rev limiter on a racetrack you are either on a really tight track or you suck as a driver. If you want to remove the speed limiter for use on the street, you just suck, period, end of discussion.

That is the info I find on local tracks.
I myself drive 1.5 hours to the nearest 1/4 track, at least once a month.
