Hi there!
I´m new here and ready to a QX56 to ship it to Germany.
Does anybody have an idea, how to get rid of this topspeed-limiter?
Once I owend Tahoes. For them I cound buy a Hypertech computer.
Is there anything simular for the QX?

Nothing on the market now. There are units being developed that may let you change/eliminate the limiter, but at this time you can't do anything about it.

114 mph is it. Not as fast as you want but its still a safe speed on the autobahn. ;)

The car supposedely does have a governor(to 112 mph) but i have a qx56 so does my friend and we both dont have limiters in our cars, just drive one and see if you can push it past the 112mph. O yea tell us the top speed since you drive on an autobahn (130 for me too scared to go any faster).

Anyway, today I´ve purchaised my "new" XQ, a 2004 black fully loaded from
a small dealership in Orlando FL.
I´m kind of cerious - but have to wait 2-3 more weeks untill it gets to Germany.

Cruise can't be used on my G35 that high either. I tried at 122 mph. ;)

Yes - Just as it states in the Owners Manual.

Well, when you're driving for an hour and a half at that speed, it gets tiring and it also makes it easier to dial when you are on cruise. ;)

It would get ugly if one of those high quality Contis blew at over 100. Already have bubbles in them sitting still.

Yeah, I agree. I don't think I've broken 90 in the Mada. Tires aren't the best. The G35 has Bridgestone Pole Positions so it rocks. ;)

German Cruisin

Had a 328 and set the cruise at 110 driving through Colorado and whatever state is next to it heading to San Diego via Las Vegas. Hit something too... not sure what. Whatever it was it wasn't alive much longer. Shweewh... didn't scratch the car. Felt like cruising at 65. Just me and the stars and a solid white line down the middle of the road (used to be hashmarks).

Yeah, I hit a bird at over 90 and it just exploded into a cloud of feathers. Nothing left to hit the ground. :eek:

As for the top end limiter, I think I figured out why 112 mph. The Contis are rated S for the speed rating, which is 112 mph.

G35's are good to thrash around, I took an m3 Cabrio on with a loaner 05' G.

112 is max. I tried it many times. I know this is a large SUV, but it can handle a little more then 112. Unichip makes software for it, but reports say it is worthless. I guess we have to live with it.

proautoman makes a chip also. The limiter is there because the tire rating is 112mph. Go faster, shred the tires. Get faster tires and the chip and stay on a race course or in the AZ desert, etc. if you want to go faster. ;)

Neither of these units remove the limiter.

Do you really believe that??? :confused:

The cover car for BF Goodridge Drag Radials is Dwayne Gutridge's Mustang. It has run as fast as 7.70at 180 range. Do you know what front tires he uses???? Pep Boys specials!!!! They cost 24.99 each and have no speed rating. He has yet to blow one out. Speed ratings are ratings for sustained speed. I do not plan of cruising my QX at 130 for any period of time. I would just like the ability to go faster some of the time. My ML55 would go as fast as 152. I just want the ability to go fast sometimes
