Hey guys don't mean to interrupt the conversation here, but I am really freaking out now. I was doing a launch on a back road from a stop. When shifting from 2 to 3 using tap shift I up shifted to 3rd at around 6,900 rpm. Engine started to roar more after. After I tried to shift and the speedometer read about 7,200. I let off the gas and hit the brake afterward. The redline is at 7,000!!!! What could I have done to the car?

you did nothing wrong. there is a fail safe rev limiter. just a lag in the needle. the car won't let you go past the rev limit. unless you tune it out.

Should also be buying a low profile jack soon. Need one before I can lower the front of the camaro.

I think I am done with this one for awhile meow. I know I have said that before but I am trying to get a track specific car. Hoping to get that in the next few weeks.

Not a bad choice. I am loving the look of the 2016 Ford RS for a hot hatch, maybe my third car down the road

That would be golden. Then again, first time I drove my camaro I stalled quite often. At that point, I had only driven one other manual and it was a 97 BMW with a clutch that grabbed pretty high in the pedal travel.
