top speed govenor

Is there a way to disconnect the top speed govenor, or is it controlled by the cpu program only?

Just be aware that D and E rated tires are not rated for the speeds these trucks are capable of with the limiter disabled. There is a great deal of inertia generated at the RPM the tires start to turn over 100 and alot of steel in them to fail explosively. Probably rare but possible. The speed limiter probably has more to do with the tires then anything else. Now if you can find some adaquately rated tires then take her to a safe/legal venue and have at it.
