      Doesn't your software have a rev limiter? Or can't you set one up using lemmiwinks or unisettings? I'm not sure...... Just thinking out loud.

      What? Your rev limiter is your right foot then.

      Be smarter than the machine.

      you have no business driving a turbo!

      Rev limiters are for grandpas and grandmas
      and for children who are beginner drivers.

      yes, your rev limiter is your RIGHT FOOT.

      you want to explain to us what you expect to gain and accomplish with a rev limiter?

      LOL were you watching when the toyota prius reved out of control, and now you think you need one????? haha...
