your right it does cut off fuel. .. man i need sleep :blink:Originally posted by bitcore@Feb 4 2004, 08:24 PM
I've done this way too many times when playing around in manual mode.
It doesn’t SHUT DOWN the engine like you would think that phrase means, it just kills the fuel input (or whatever it does) until rpm is in acceptable bounds and then resumes normal operation. When the limiter is doing its job, you should notice it right away. It gives you quite an uneasy feeling, sort of similar to what traction control feels like when it kicks in, but a little more violent.
<crazy>(Well, it makes me feel uneasy because my car is telling me “Hey I don’t like that, it hurts, stop it,” and we all know we dont want to hurt our own baby...)</crazy>
i thought optimal was 4900... at least i've been seeing that around here.Originally posted by Andrewsd1985@Feb 5 2004, 01:59 PM
You shouldn't be going to the redline anyway, the optimal horsepower for the e36 is 5900 and you don't redline till 6500.
uh yah... I accidentally did this a few hours ago messing around for about a second and a half, and an hour later my check engine light is on. I was driving it very hard though. Great! No CPO and I gotta pay for it up front :banghead :cryOriginally posted by schnitz@Feb 6 2004, 03:59 PM
:thumbs I agree. you shouldnt push the rpm to the limit if you want to have your car for a long time. 5500 should be fun enuff :cheers
