Enjoying my rev limiter
I hate rev limiters with a passion, but my new (to me) 147 TS Lusso 2 litre has a good one. It seems to work in two stages and the soft stage gives plenty of time to enjoy the motor. A previous car, Saab 900 ng turbo, had a vile limiter which just cut out brutally and I was always watching the rev counter instead of the road!
Anyway, on a recent fun run (private roads of course) the 147's limiter gave me a gentle reminder at around 90mph in third and I didn't need to change up as the road was running out. On another straight I was at 110mph in fourth with no sign of the limiter. My guess is that it will come at around 120mph. Probably the limiter is irrelevant in fifth as the car will never get to speed. For me, this makes fifth gear more of an overdrive than top gear which is OK.
Anyone know exactly where the limiter hits in the higher gears and do you like using yours?
