Oops! Man Removes Governor on V6 Mustang, Driveshaft Removes Itself
by John Coyle
Ever wondered if it's a good idea to remove the governor on your V6 Mustang and go for a top speed run? Well, we know it's not uncommon, but this video proves you might not want to push the envelope too much. At around 135MPH, this Pony's driveshaft decided it'd had enough. Details come from the YouTube description:
"Major damage caused by the broken shaft included a hole in the metal floorpan, major exhaust system and muffler damage, broken transmission shifter, broken parking brake, broken interior plastic trim parts, etc."
Sounds about right to me. Of course, you have to be a total moron to try and film yourself while driving at 135mph, which leads us to wonder about the number of cards in this guy's deck. But that doesn't stop the dude from ranting about how crappy Ford's engineering is.
What do you think about this video? Head over to the Forum and sound off!
