    Rev Limiter

    Hello,

    I recently took my 2001 WS6 6-Speed Hurst Out

    Tacked it up and let it rip.

    About 5 grand in first, When I went to second It felt like the car took over and bogged down (Kinda like if traction control was engaged on wet pavement)

    Does the Rev Limiter Hold the car at a fixed speed in that gear until you get out of it.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    AP

    I guess you could say that.

    You can only go the speed that is 5000rpm in 1st/2nd/3rd/etc.
    It's not really a fixed speed though.

    I dont know.

    When I hit 5000 the Car seemed to hold that position, and Not let me go any farther up. And when I pulled 2nd Gear the Held at about 4500 until I got out of it.

    Then It responded but not until I put it in neutral for a second.

    Yea you probably hit the rev limiter.
    Get a computer programmer/tuner and and raise it about 300rpms higher. You won't make any more power but it'll keep you from bouncing off the limiter.
