6,000ish rpm in first gear..

i was ripping it the other day, as i was in first gear i went past 6k rpm and i kept holding it down to see what would happen.. as i was at 6.5k it stopped and wouldnt let me drive unless i shifted.. it was like i couldnt rev or drive anymore. is that a rev limiter? what would that be?

Ya, thats a rev limiter. It kicks on at 6500rpm and wont re-enable the ignition system till it backs down to 6200rpm. Its not a smart idea to hit that. Stay around 6k for best results.

Is this really a serious question? This has to be a joke.
