    4000 rpm in 6th is a shade under 140 MPH - If the rev limit was removed you'd just be tempted to use it. With a tuning box the 150 bhp will pull to the limiter uphill, driving that fast is enough for me - I worry about the consequences too much to do it more than very occasionally (twice in 6 months ive had the car) and its a sensible restriction all things considered.

    I agree, it is a sensible restriction - not many chances ever to hit that point
    anyway.

    Was just a curiosity because i'd seen it on YouTube
