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

The coupes have no limiter from the factory, and will go plenty fast.

187mph in my last car was deadly quiet and tracked completely straight.........I just ran out of man marbles. At nearly 300' per second you don't have a lot of room for error. Back on topic though, and seriously a concern, at what speed with the convertible top just peel itself away from the car or possibly be damaged in some way?

Lot of threads on this topic, but actually yes the coupes (and verts) are limited to 155, barring a tune. Zl1 coupes are not. The main reason is above 155 the front end begins to lift, they changed that with the zl1 coupe hence no longer speed limited.
