155 Limiter? First time I've heard of this, is it only in the convertibles? Had my Old SS Coupe at 153. Have yet to fully open up my ZL1 and it better Not be Limited

Dude, my old '83 Lincoln Town Car would do that.

These cars are made for stability at speed. Be careful and choose a good road on a good day with no traffic, but going fast is OK, really. Don't freak, just enjoy. =]

Only the soft tops are limited, for safety reasons.

From what little info I found on the topic, the Safety concern is really a business decision. I read somewhere that the tops were simply not tested for the higher top speed of the ZL1 over the SS. It seems to me the convertible has several SS traits. This tells me that GM chose to limit their cost by keeping the convertible within the already analyzed bounds of the SS. We do the same thing where I work.

I would still keep the rev limiter (unless I mod the engine).

My 2010 was limited to 155.
You have to tune it out. Now it goes faster than that
