So what does the limit feature do? I tried messing with it when I first got my car but couldn't figure out what it did.

Yeah, we'll see... It's a bummer in the freezing cold to have to fill up so much more often. And that last 1/8th of a tank goes SO fast. Two close calls already. ;D

Okay guys, FYI:

I am averaging 17.4 miles/gal with the airbox, Schrick 288/280 Cam, and my pretty intense driving style.

It 'felt like' a lot less than that, but I guess not. Very good.

Do you cruise at 155? Do you live in a desolate area? Aren't these cars incredible?

Haha I wish, I set it to 155 because that's where it is limited electronically (I believe?).
Honesty I don't need a speed warning.
People asked me the same question when they ride in my car lol.
