It's the speed limiting device programmed into the computer. Just because the speedometer reads to 130 MPH doesn't mean the vehicle will go that fast. HTH. -Jim

Did you say 100 mph? Well, in case you were unaware, there's a special citation for going this fast, it's called "exhibition of speed ". And, besides costing thousands of dollars, I'm not kidding, you can lose your driver's license immediately and have to go to court. Do you really want to do that? You should also know that "speed kills" and people lose control at excessive speeds. Just look at what happened to Paul Walker? So, before you think you want to turn your car into the "Millennium Falcon ", think again. I don't know where you think you can drive at those speeds, but unless your car is not out in a desolate area with no traffic and you've got high speed rated tires on your vehicle, you're taking an unnecessary risk and possibly endangering others. The only highways with speeds around 80 or 85 mph are in Utah. Plus, the above post is correct, there's an electronic governor on your car. It's there for a reason. The fact that your speedometer says 130 is meaningless, it might as well go to 200.
