People I need some help here....

I gotta buddy here that has a Geo Storm...he is going to stomp my ass into the ground unless I can figure out one thing...

HOW DO I DISCONNECT THE SPEED LIMITER ON MY 1991 SENTRA...

We were driving down the highway in my car when I hit the speed limiter (...I though I blew it at first..LOL). He knows now...he's going to catch me on the highway one of these days and tear me a new asshole...HELP!!!!

I'm on a budget here...so no ECU's..and re-programming...TOO EXPENSIVE...

Can I just disconnect the speedo...???

What wire can I cut here people....C'mon!!!

If someone can...please inform me how it works. What it is driven off of etc.

He's fast...real fast...

Help before I get embarrased on the highway....:(

REMINDER: I'M ON A BUDGET HERE PEOPLE!!! A tight one....

Errrrrrr....I never said it is the SE-R model...did I, now....

The GEO....It's the 95HP model....But...Yeah that thing can go pretty fast... It's not stock...it's got the interior stripped out, no exhaust (almost...), ram-air kit(home made...) and ignition timing at 18 degrees. That thing moves....not really...but it's faster than my Sentra...

I've "clocked" him at about 120mph when he was following me in my Mustang...

He's also been clocked at 110+ mph....:)

GSP CERTIFIED....

:p

PatScott..do you have any more info on that...???

Where is it located, how I dissconnect it...etc.

...trying to save my ass...again...LOL...thanks

The track??? He's spanked my ass repeatatly in the local Autocross track....

I want to beat his ass coming BACK from the track...LOL

But seriously all jokes aside I do want to take it off...so if anyone has some ideas let me know.

ONCE AGAIN...BUDGET IS NON EXISTANT..

And if my car does not have a speed limiter...I got some serious issues with my wiring...once I hit 110 mph...LOL

I'm positive the car has a speed limiter...

You obviously can't read...

At 110mph the engine SHUTS OFF....

:rolleyes:

If you don't have the ANSWER...don't reply !!!

I'm not here to argue or justify WHY I want to disconnect it...or if it even HAS a speed limiter...

I know it does...

I don't know....

I'm confused to be honest...

I'm almost positive it was the speed limiter...I mean what else could it be.

The car simply shut off...when I dipped the clutch I blipped the throttle and NOTHING happened. That's when I freaked out 'cause I though I blew it up. But after it came back to idle...I blipped the throttle again and...the car was fine again. I seriously doubt it was some kind of temporary electrical problem...because nothing else happened. It was during the night time and the lights were fine...nothing dimmed, the radio kept playing.

Strange....

I'll post when i find out more...

I'll try it tomorrow and see if it does it again...here goes my license... :( ...LOL

Well guys...it was a cool morning and she was running
like a champ...:D

There IS a speed limiter....It kicked in at about 114mph indicated...and it did it again....

This time I kept it taped to see what happeneds...it kept slowing down but at about 102mph the car took off again.

I don't think it's like a ignition type limiter....it almost feels like the fuel pump would just shut off...

Sometime soon I'll try to get a Haynes manual and see if they mention anything.... I'm hoping there is like a wire I can just cut.
Or maybe disconnecting the speedo would do the trick...
I don't think it's anything too advanced...it's a sentra for God's sake...a 1991 base model at that...:)

Just 'cause I said that it's propobly driven off of a sealed hidden GPS system...over the gas tank...LOL..

I'll keep you posted guys...

:cool:

Posted bt ScarCrow28:

well thats a new discovery........now i knew there was a rev limiter, but not a speed limiter.
It's funny too 'cause I actually thought the exact opposite until two days ago....

A reputable member of the forum told me that the cars rev-limiter kicks in at 6900rpm. But I've never had it that high...but I was not sure because I've had it at 6400...and it sounded like it was going to go POP!!!

I mean it sounded like it was STRAINING HARD....LOL

I'll find out eventually though....;)

You shouldnt be going that fast anyways man, but you could always buy an APEXI RSM.
Ahhhhhh....thanks for the heads up mom...

If you are running your car all the way to the redline is cause you're stuck is 3rd gear...
My tranny is a 4 speed... I top out at 114mph at 5100rpm.

I'd be doing 150 mph if it would go all the way to the red-line...:rolleyes:

BTW: I did'nt know that 110mph is this outrageous, break-neck speed.... I do these things in safe locations...like my neighborhood roads...:p No highways...too cop infested...

I do live in east jesus though.... It's like 3 miles to my favorite balls out back-road....

I ain't worried about the tires...it's the complete lack of damping on all four corners...:(

I have been living with out an A/C unit for a long long time now...My SENTRA is the first car that actually has a WORKING A/C...I ain't giving that up...

My car has no power-steering allready...:D Like I said my SENTRA is the BASE model...the only thing it's got is the AC + Radio...that's it...no thrills...no whistles...

My 90 b12 doesn't have a speed limiter I believe and I can only make it up to 105 about mph and this is far from the redline. You know why I can't go faster? The aerodynamics of the car, head winds etc. If you car does have a speed limiter, which some doubt, then oh well you got beat by a geo who cares, but if it doesn't your car probably can't handle going any faster, and if the engine shuts off when you get that high that usually isn't the indication of a speed limiter, that's just dangerous and maybe you should take it as a hint that your car just can't handle going that fast.
errrrrrrrrrrr.....ok...will do...:rolleyes:

The car has a speed limiter...as soon as I get a job and can freely break things in my car...I will find out how to disable it.


maxpower559...thanks for your suggestions. That's what I'm pretty much planning to do. First try the gearbox trick...then see what happends. The reason I don't want to buy a ECU is because they are like $500...my car cost me $800....:D

It's a 4 speed MANUAL....

As for the other comment...just 'cause I'm broke and can't afford a racecar doesn't mean I don't want to have fun too... :D

well if its a 4 speed manual your going to have different gear ratios then if it were a 5spd, thus I still believe the problem is in your transmission and not the speed limiter.
...and I believe that you don't know what your talking about...

People stop giving me lessons on how I should drive MY ******* car...OK? Get over it...

This is not a "Should I drive my senrta over 100mph?" post...
So please leave your "expert" opinions to someone who cares...'cause I don't...:rolleyes:

Cheers...

Cars crash and people die, but why should innocent people die just cause some irresponsible speed freak wants to drive his sentra over 130mph. If he wants to drive that fast fine, do it at the track. Find some thing else better to do and stop trolling here.
**** you man...I didn't ask for your sorry *** opinion...

You don't know where I live...but you still IMMIDETLY assume I am doing these speeds anywhere close to what you could call civilization. And of course...endangering other people...
I love how quick people are to slam me for doing these speeds on the streets. Do you really think it will matter if I hit a car head on at 55mph or a 100mph...??? There is going to be the same result...I and the occupants of the other car will most likely die.
But like i said...THERE IS NO ONE AROUND TO SEE ME DOING 100MPH+...

Here come these yuppies (that obviously don't know **** about cars...) telling me how I'm a bad, bad person for driving my car how I want to. It's my life, my car...and unless I plow into a van full of children sometime soon...very few of you, have the right to tell me how to drive. I'll be turning over in my fucking grave if i have an accident in a ****-slow 100HP SENTRA...after 4 years of driving rear-wheel drive Mustangs. With some bald-*** tires at that...

So stop crying...I swear, this forum is just full of ******* whiners. And I don't even want to hear how I'm picking on people...or being mean and disrespectful. These douche bags are asking for it. I posted a while back "Unless you have the answer don't post anything". Learn how to read...then come back with some constructive crititcism.


For now though...**** OFF....:mad:
