Hey guys,
Does anybody knows what’s the governor speed set on the raptors??
Couldn’t not keep up with a raptor just a moment ago on the expressway!!!!

It’s okay if the guy have the governor removed, but if he didn’t it’s unacceptable ........
@Jackson I was on the 635 expressway and couldn’t keep up with him, this damn 118 governor ........
Sorry if there are threads about this already , just venting guys........

Were you walking him before the limiter? I’d be pissed too and probably get a tune within a week. I feel your pain

He was already on the expressway, I saw him and tried to pass him, but couldn’t ..... he was doing about 105-110 already .......

Speed governor from the factory is 107 on the Raptors. He had a tune. In a straight line a Raptor with an intake, downpipe back exhaust, and tune will beat a TRX in a straight line cause of it being 800lbs lighter

I have a raptor with all those things and more.

no it won’t.

It’s close but no cigar
TFL did a race between a TRX and a Tuned raptor with intake, exhaust and spd adapter, downpipe and exhaust.......the TRX won by literally a foot. The Raptor was sitting 4 inches lifted on 37s. I've raced a Raptor with all those mods plus an intercooler and lets just say that video will never make my channel lol. I may pony up with the Ripatune package and then its game on lol.

I mean its stock to aftermarket and a simple tune makes the TRX out of reach for the Raptor but in the context of the OPs situation, the Raptor was definitely not stock.

It just did for me.... sadly.....
If it makes you feel better if this started at 105, you had basically no time to make a move before sitting on the Governor. I think a 75-110 pull would have been very different

I think it beats a tuned raptor if just the Governor was off. I know I bang that gov really fast.

I know @Bambi, I used to have an Audi RS7 performance package and that car was a pleasure to drive ...... it had a governor at 195... I know I’m not comparing apples to apples but my damn daily driver BMW 335I can clock 165mph...... I love my truck, but today I was really pissed....... lol

I get it. You are talking to someone that never took my sportscar out without breaking 170. The struggle is real. Just console yourself with the fact that the truck has way more speed in it based on how quick it gets to 117. Just call a tuner tomorrow and have them pull the Governor. I doubt Ram could void your warranty for that. Or say fuck it and buy a powerkit.

I’m struggling not to do this myself. If I got beat by a raptor I would probably be calling tomorrow but I’m a vengeful bastard. Only have a thousand miles on it. Trying to see if something will break before I light my warranty on fire

I sure will..... I know the aerodynamics plays a big factor on it and they need to build for the crowd and not for the enthusiast .... I’ll look it up into it......

The Gen 2 Raptor is limited to 107 due to tire speed rating limit similar to TRX. However, a tune can deactivate...

Exactly. I remember being passed by a Silverado one day in my Gen 2 Raptor. Immediately ordered/installed an MPT tune. Top speed moved from 107, to burying the needle on the dash. Apples to Apples, a tuned TRX will walk the Raptor star to finish.
