when you drive it once you hit arround 3,500rpms it hits what seems to be the rev limiter!
it also happens when you clutch it and in neutral!
cheers

is it factory manual?sounds like its in limp home mode, if so just take the positive lead off the battery overnight, to let the computer reset and see what happens.
