Here's one recent thread on that:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/d...ht=rev+limiter

It's a safety device to prevent engine/trans damage. Some actually use it as a type of unofficial "launch control", more discussion of that in the Drag Racing section.

i fully understand what it is. im not asking what it is. im asking how to remove it. i dont care if it wears the engine.

if your car has little power and a lot of traction, you need to rev up higher to get a better launch. that is my problem. i can launch my car at much higher RPM but its limited so i get slow underwhelming launches.
