There's no reason to get rid of the speed limiter, I still have mine in place.

But get a tune from Tom if you want one now. That way when you add more parts the updated tune is free.

There are only 2 options to 'tune' your car:
* Xcal + Advantage III (Pro-Racer) - $$650-$1,100 (depending on who you buy from and options)
* Xcal and remote tune - $400-$more (depending on who you go with and options)

YOU DON'T NEED TO REMOVE THE LIMITER.

Talk to 1turbofocus and he'll give you his prices. IIRC it's about $400 for the device and custom tune.


And if you're 'racing' cars on the interstate and winning,,, you're racing the wrong cars, slowpoke.

Racing on the interstate is dumb. It's not safe for you or anybody else on the road. Take it to the track buddy

None of us care. Racing does not belong on the street no matter what.

If you want to stay around you'd best learn that real fast.
