is there a story behind this? if so plz share! not sure how you would do that(maybe an anti racing chip? happywink j?k)... maybe you could mess up your balance or alignment so the car shakes bad at high speeds and use that as an excuse?

How about moving your mph needle. Might work.Instead of being at "0" move it past the zero and force it back. It has a pin (black) that stop the needle about the zero mark. Also maybe putting more weight to the needle will make it move slower. Or just dont listen to me. I might screw up your car. idunno

Yah, you could setup something on your throttle body that limits how much throttle you can use. It would have to jam the rotation of the butterfly valve in the trottle body which also controls your throttle position sensor & therefor your motor as well. You would have to make it adjustable & then tune it to 95MPH. Wouldn't be all that difficult. thumbsup

It's a good defense to post this info to the world. It's also a good defense when you here how the cop tells the judge how he/she did all the required licensed radar checks before hand. You're screwed.

Might try lossening the throttle cable, I also hear there a knob on the back of the gas pedal that has the same effect. Your car will go real slow if its not getting very much gas. That would be what i'd do. thumbsup

Getting a Power FC or equivalent would help, but they cost about $1000, or get your transmission gears tuned to a lower ratio so your transmission lowers your top speed or get a new transmission with a lower gear ratio, but it would be cheaper and easier to just pay the dumb ticket.
