My truck maxes out at 98 MPH, but when I bought my truck, it had 22” Denali wheels. I now have the same wheels but with new tires, Hankook Ventus ST RH06, that are "V" rated.
My question is, why is there a speed limiter? Besides the fact that it’s a truck, what mechanical points are we putting into the spotlight that result in a speed limiter? I live in Florida, and our highways are usually long straightaways with all traffic usually on the right side. When I’m passing, I get cut off at 98 MPH.... I don’t want that. I want to remove my limiter, but obviously not do ridiculous speeds... most I’d ever go is 115 STRETCHING it, in certain situations where it’s safer for me to pass at a speed that high. The reason I wan the limiter removed/increased is because I sometimes like to go to our local track day where we test our vehicle's times on an 1/8 mile and 1/4 mile, and as mentioned above, passing on non-busy highways later into the evening when there isn’t much traffic. I've tried searching through the forums here but everything is redundant, I never really got to find an answer. I wanted to ask why the speed limiter is in place, outside of tire speed rating. I’ve been hearing about it involving the driveshaft, but they never really have any solid answers and it leaves me confused... how can a driveshaft be damaged/exploded with a 10-20 mph increase, especially when these driveshafts are made to handle towing heavy hauls and off roading? Mind you, these speeds aren’t "long distance” speeds... what I mean is I’m not going to be spending my whole time on the highway or track doing 115.
And before any of you keyboard warriors think about replying, I do not care to hear your opinion on "speeding". I’m an experienced driver. I don’t mean to sound cocky, I just want to point it out that I’m looking for an explanation behind the speed limiter varying between a year or two...
Hey there I am a proud owner of a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado. The issues I wanted to discuss is the new technology in the truck. What I'm referring to is the E assist system. Only 500 of these were released in California, I own one and love my truck but I believe this system is making the truck drive weird. I'm not sure if it's because it's trying to improve fuel economy or just faulty but when I am coming to a stop I can feel a clunk almost like I was rear ended, I can also feel it when taking off and it's annoying. I wanted to see if any of you have had similar problems in your truck and any advise you had or your experience. I brought this issue to the dealer twice and both times they found issues but none with the e assist system or transmission they claim. I have posted a link to a video of what happened on my last experience to my local dealer. Thanks for any help.
I have a 2016 Chevy 2500HD, that has 37” tires. I got a ticket the other day for 87MPH when I had my cruise set at 75MPH. What model of speedohealer do I need to buy?
i contacted Healtech and they replied: To confirm compatibility, we need to know whether your car has a speedometer sensor mounted on the gearbox or elsewhere, and is it 2-wire or 3-wire sensor.

Just wanted to relay a story in case anyone runs into this issue. Well, a couple weeks ago I did a simple pan drop, filter change, and added 6 quarts of Amsoil Signature series fluid. The truck was shifting really smooth and running great for about 3-4 days. After that I noticed a shudder at 20-30 mphs. Nothing major and it felt like it was coming from the back of the truck, so I assumed it was the rear wheels needing balancing. After more driving of the truck I slowly realized the shudder was likely due to the torque converter.
I had bought 3.5 gallons of amsoil fluid and had planned to disconnect the trans line and pump out old fluid and add new. I finally got around to doing that yesterday and drove the truck about 10 miles or so and have now noticed the shudder is pretty much gone. The fluid was extremely dirty but didn't smell burned and my truck is a 2014 with only 46k. For only 46k I felt like the fluid was way too dirty but I didn't feel the pan had an excess amount of metal shavings in it. I have never had a shudder develop after a simple fluid change but wanted to share this with anyone in case it happens. If the shudder doesn't completely go away I may end up (unfortunately) buy another gallon of fluid and exchange it out. However so far it seems like the shudder is gone or very minimal.
