Why is the V6 automatic limited to 115mph?

Not that I'll ever go 115mph, I'm just curious as to the reasoning of the limitation.

then you're fine.

its on the Camaro site.
M6 or A6, its an electronic limiter placed at build based on the shoes it comes with.
Only the LS and 1LT sport the 18s, the 1LT does have the RS option available to give it 20s. That would get set you to the higher limit.
The 2LT has base 19s anyway so it would be set to 155 regardless

It's not the size, it's the speed rating!

get Y or Z vice H and then modify your limiter

except all but the 18s are rated higher
only the LS and an un-optioned 1LT would ship with 18s
everthing else would be set to 155

Go look at the build site, on the home page Perfomance 01
hover over View Stats
118mph(18-inch tires)/155mph (19/20/21-inch tires)
**all models electronically limited**

Starky I'm just bumping this to make sure you see it. The car your ordering is not limited, only the LS and 1LT with the 18s will be limited to 115.
