U seem to like to experiment ur car to the limit in ways ppl have never thought of.
Ahh is that right? Interesting! People were also saying that the car rev limits itself to 3500rpm in N or P, but I'm not fussed on trying that because it's not a problem I'm ever going to encounter in a real world situation, plus I don't like an unloaded engine to achieve a high engine speed.
