Kudos for the speed, but I would be pretty damn hesitant to take a picture at 125 mph.
The fastest I have ever gone was 175 mph in my 2001 cobra (no longer have see sad story post) it was very scary it was at 3 am on the highway. I think the cobra could have done 190 but that would have been suicidal on the highway.

The SVT will go faster than 125 mph. You need to downshift to 5th and run it out. There isn't a governor on the SVT, its just that there isn't enough power to run out 6th...

Yeah the gear ration on the SVTF will def let you go past 125! U just need some bolt ons to give some extra umph! in the higher gears.
