How many here have over rev'd the X? Ofcoures not intentionally (I hope), but how many have gone just a tad over? :p
:slaphead:

Maybe because the throttle response isn't what you had in your last car, or maybe you didn't get all the way into gear. Just wondering (stuck at work bored).


past rev limiter?
Yes, Past Rev Redline on the Tach.

I'l be honest. I let go of the gas -> then step on the clutch. It seems to still climb. Just me learning the car? or the fly by wire?
My GTO had fly by wire and I only experienced this issue on cold start whereas I get this nearly all of the time in the X. I assumed it might have something to do with how long the intake pluming is (with the turbo pressure and all). Granted the ThrottleBody is still right by the intake manifold, I figure some air might get through.

If someone actually KNOWS why X's do this, please chyme in.
