    yeah thats what a governor is. it "governs" your top speed.

    Anyways, no, i have not removed one on a truck, but i have pulled them out of my quads :)

    sorry to get off topic a little.

    You don't. Your Taco is governed at 117MPH. You have no need at all to go that fast unless you are at a track. And even so, a PreRunner is NOT built for that kind of speed.

    bingo

    unless youve lowered your truck considerably and are only running it at the track...there is absolutely NO reason to take your truck that fast

    its flat out unsafe...especially in such a rollover prone vehicle such as a pickup truck

    good call da hui/05tacotrd..rep for you
