wow...what a dumb ***. dumb in the first place for removing his governor without making the necessary upgrades to handle such speeds, and then even dumber for getting pissed at ford for not making their car able to handle past what they limited it to?

That is f***ing awesome!

It reminds me of videos where you see people do dumb sh*t like put their head in a gator's mouth only to see the gator lock it's jaw.


Gee I wonder they put a sign out that electric fence that says danger don't touch. Oh well............. BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZT.

Personally, I think the driveshaft should be able to handle the power the car makes. Despite the fact that he removed the governer, I would be livid if I was him. It's been said plenty of times on different forums, if Ford didn't intend for the V6 Mustang to be driven in a sporty manner, then they shouldn't advertise it in a commercial doing crazy burnouts and powerslides.

I'm surprised he even made it to 135 before the failure.

So what exactly needs to be upgraded to support those speeds? What's the difference between the V6 and GT?

Drivetrain is a little different, if you read about it closely you will notice that the u-joint caps come loose and cause the u-joints to come out of place.

Not entirely a "strength of materials" problem here, but instead how the driveshaft's supporting equipment was engineered.


Basically you need a new one-piece DS (shaftmasters is popular) with bigger retainer rings, and U-joint caps.

Idiot. There is a limiter for a reason. And to answer Kzonts question - he should have gotten a thicker DS (if they make one for the V6) or got a GT DS, and a DS safetly loop for the event a DS failure happens; like in this case.

Crazy burnouts and powerslides are not done at 110+ mph. Driving in a sporty manner does not require speeds that high.

It's not so much as the driveshaft doesn't handle the power as it is about the vehicle's speed. I doubt that vehicle needs 300 hp to reach the breaking point of that drivetrain part.

I cannot see how Ford is to blame for this.

Thanks for providing that info... I've had my car up to 110 (only once) but that's all I was brave enough to try since I've heard there was a limit, so I didn't push it.
