You know Tim... I didn't even ask. He had to have the RPMs near or at 4000-5000 After the engine idled, I kind of left it at that. But I noticed while on my way home entering on the freeway after the tint was done, I eased on the pedal as usual, but the car kind of stalled for a split second. It NEVER did that on me. Also, it took about 7-8 seconds more to get up to 60 MPH. I hope that MFCKR didn't do any damage.TimSax said:I guess it would depend on how high he got the RPMs. In any case, I'd be pretty pissed too. Did he say what the heck he was doing?
This info is correct. I went on a test drive and tested it out, it was also weird not to see the RPM needle "bounce", it just stayed at 4K constant.Brooksie1of1 said:a couple of days ago, i went to start going forward, and i hit the gas, and i didnt go anywhere (didnt quite get it into D, from reverse... had it in neutral), i hit a rev limiter at 4k rpm, and it wont go past that.... even when its floored while in Park, and Neutral

A few years ago, I pulled the same thing on my own car. As I was parked (engine was still running), I reached into the back seat to get something and my foot hit the gas pedal. I floored it. Thankfully, the car was in park. I heard the engine revving up and I was thinking "what's that sound?" It took me about a second or two to realize that I was stepping on the gas pedal.
It could have been a similar situation with the tint guy if you want to give the guy the benefit of the doubt.
Wait a minute. So the engine would never rev past 4K? If that's true, then you'll never get the rated horsepower and torque out of that engine.Xtreme Thunder said:This info is correct.

Ouch! This isn't how it's supposed to be.MetroAWD said:Hey, two comments from me... In my R/T, sometimes off the line I hit the pedal and I'm like WTF, no accel, and it almost seems to stall. More or Less gas and everything goes back to normal. There is definitely some technique to getting max accel off the line with my particular R/T.
Second, after seeing other owners testify to this, I left my autostick in gear without tipping it up a gear, and sure as shit, it shifts to the next gear on its own before redline. A built-in failsafe. While I don't recommend this for daily driving, if your late for a funeral, this is the way to go.
