lets say u are redlining in third gear and u wanna put it into fourth. but then u decide to be like " hell yea bitches" and purposely stick it in second trying to be cool or something. well. this is where my question begins. will the engine blow or will the revv limiter keep the revvs from going to high and just squeel the tires? or could something else happen. what do u guys think. btw, if u decide to do this, make sure to record it.

your revlimiter wont help you. the wheels are still moving at the same speed and will want to get the engine moving fast resulting in...

blowing the engine
destroying the transmission
or both.

If you do that, I am pretty sure you will get the engine to spin at like 18000 rpm as soon as the clutch is let out.... and your car is not a Formula 1 car or a motorcycle to be able to withstand those rpms.

youd blow your engine. i think a stock 325 can rev up to 8200 then it couldnt handle anymore (however i wouldnt even try to go near that) , if you dropped your clutch youd probably be close to 9000.

alright. thanks for ure imput. i was jw if the revv limiter would keep the revvs from going that high. thats why i thought maybe the rear tires would just lock or something. i guess that wouldnt happen. alright. thanks guys.

This is one post where I DON'T know what I'm talking about, but I'm pretty sure I've read that the rev limiter isn't guranteed to work on downshifts. Based on our modest electronics (8bit ECU) you could easliy money shift your e36 and blow your engine to bits.

BTW, I'm not sure I understand where this would be cool. What's the point?

that's just first though because the synchors are preventing you from doing it... you could force it and it would go, but there is no point, as second works just fine.

i assure you that you can go into any other gear from any rpm

you would mechanical overrev, because the engine has no way of limiting itself. The rev limiter cuts the fuel, so when it hits its max, it will automatically stop the engine.

I actually don't think that works with reverse. I once tried to slide it there with the clutch disengaged while going forward at ten-ish, and it barked at me. Never let it out, still yelled.

so many things to comment on...here goes

1. You can't go into reverse when going forward becuase reverse does not have syncros. The noise you heard was the gears grinding....OUCH

2. You could put it in first going 60ish, but you would really be working your syncros HARD. If you did it a few times they would be shot.

3. If you put your car in second while redlining in third, your clutch would pretty much instantly dissinegrate. I had a buddy of mine (moron) due this to his s10 truck back in autoshop days, and when we took off his tranny all the clutch lining was on the bottom of the bell housing.

Now if you are not so lucky like my buddy was, a few other things might happen as well. If you are able to actually let the clutch out, you would first destroy your engine, possibly transmission, and you would run the risk of locking up the entire driveline causing your rear wheels to lock up. In turn, the back of your car would immediately come around and you would be F*ed.

My suggestion...never try this....ever


















Unless you drive a FORD
