But unfortunately Ford limits the top speed of the FFE so it can't quite reach the required 88mph for the flux capacitor to acheive time travel!

I saw that option on the Fiesta and the Focus. They really should have offered it on the Fusion, maybe the Mr. Fusion package :D

A sense of humor: Cool, and gave me a laugh too!
(They could have added 3 more zeros, for giga-dollars, and maybe pronounced "giga" better. I won't hold my breath for someone there asking our opinions about what needs improvement on FFE.)

I bet the Flux Capacitor option removes the speed limiter so you can go 88mph!

About speed limiting:
The car used to show a message about "... limited to 80 mph" on the left screen, at start up.

Last week, while hurrying around a driver whose weird moves worried me, my FFE speedometer got up to 86 briefly.

a) Why did it stop showing that message about a 80 limit?
b) What is a real limit, for most such cars?

(That is there to protect the motor, right ... or maybe the rest of the drive train too?)

I don't think this message happens normally (my FFE never shows it) -- only when you limit the maximum speed in a MyKey driver profile.

or maybe you could push it up to 88mph with a big train? :mrgreen:
