Its worth doing once so you know what happens if you are having an intense buttock clenching moment and should be loooking at the oncoming 38 tonner, and not the rev counter.
My first QV cut out at 7,300, but this one does it bang on 7,000
Mind you, I once borrowed a "courtesy" QV and that hit 7,700!!!
And yes, your testerone levels will peak when you do it, so make sure you warn Mrs Bazza that you may leap into the bedroom shouting Check out my Rev Limiter, babe!
