IS SVTF Governor Limited?

What up guys. I have been told and have read that the SVTF has a top speed of 134 mph. I have also heard on this site that some cars have hit as high as 145, which seems kind of hard to believe but might be true. I was just wondering if the SVTF is governor limited. And if the cars that supposedly have hit 145 mph been modified or completely stock?

Its not limited like a regular focus. I could see 134 but i think drag conditions would keep it well short of 145 though.

I have read of 140 to 145 mph being hit easy in the SVTF. Modded and stock.

You can find more by doing a search of "Top Speed" in the SVT Forum. If you are interested.
