Re: RPM Limiter
OK, I'll admit you have a point about dragging out the shift if you are
inbetween cones or a corner, and the shift would be a waste of time. I've
done it numerous times, with gritted teeth of course, as I was expecting
parts to fly. But, now that I have a sequential rev-limiter, it's not a
problem becuase I'll just run it up to redline if I suspect that shifting
is going to cost time. HOWEVER, with or without a rev-limiter, You still
are not making any power the higher up the tach you go, so why not save
your motor and leave the rev-limiter in place? I prefer the computer to
do the "looking" at the RPM's as opposed to watching the tach for
redline. I also use a shift-light tach that shines when I've reached the
peak in the horsepower curve (shift point).
BTW I do not have an audi racecar, I have a 77 VW scirocco, SCCA DSP
w/1.8 GTI motor.
