A few weeks ago I tried running some 1/4 miles using a G-Tech timer. I was hitting the rev limiter in first gear only, and at unusual rpms. I swear it cut in at 5000 a couple times. I never felt it in any gear besides first, but I shifted at 5800-6000. And the G-Tech told me I was running 16.3 at 92 mph... that can't be right.

i changed down t'day to 3rd gear to pass a car and as i accelerated i whent into the red line but it was like i had hit a wall the car just cut out is this the limiter?
