Whats the point of a rev limiter!!!!!
I just finished doing a graveyard shift at work and was on my way home when i noticed a 90's honda accord coupe tail gating me. i was a bit peeveed to say the least so i put the foot down and thought that was the last of that guy........but
we ended up at the lights so it was on (forgive me i dont usually race) lights went green i took off perfectly(i do that about 50 percent of the time so i was cheering LOL) i had him in first and second, i decided togo right up to 6500rpm because of that longggggggggg throw to 3rd but i hit the rev limiter at 7000rpm instead!
as a result i fell right back,(bugger) but it looked like i slowed down for the fast approaching traffic we were doing 80 -100k's by that stage.
i know its bad doing this but it wasnt as bad as it might seem, i assure u when i say i havent had a traffic infringment yet after 6 years of driving so im really careful! (knock on wood)
so back to my question why are there rev limiters?
