Hi,

Is it true one can remove the speed limiter just by pulling the handbrake up to 1 click?

If it is thats great because I am looking to sell my diablo and that is one of the major factors. If I can remove the speed limiter without the chip it would make my decision.

What happens when you put a pencil in the pen holder? I heard the car needs a drag shoot then.

Sorry man. Seems to me like the only thing you can pull in a Focus to get more speed is the engine- exchange it for a 5.0. Otherwise, you're going to have to add some stuff. BTW, anybody looking to buy a bridge, I'm your guy. Email me for pics.

If the Handbrake had ANYTHING Electronic about it besides the Indicator to show that it's ON, there could be a Possibility.
As it is, that's sort of akin to thinking that a Sprinter will run faster with his shoelaces untied because of the lack of restriction of bloodflow to his feet....
