Which Rev Limiter Extras?

PostPost by: simonknee » Tue Sep 04, 2012 11:15 am

So to continue tuning my main jets Keith wants me to pull at WOT to the redline.
Hmm, think I might fit a rev limiter. :)

(this is the same Keith back in the day)

Think I'll probably get an Omex one as they are easier to set than some and do a soft limit which seems kinder that a hard cut.
So... then you see they do one with a Shift Light and another with Launch Control.
Launch Control!!! Coool. This would really satisfy the young boy in me. :D
Not entirely sure it is necessary (ah, but c'mon LAUNCH CONTROL!) so does anybody have a shift light and do they find it in anyway useful what so ever?

Simon

P.S. The lad in me still wants launch control.

Simon,

I used Pertronix for set and forget as its mounted behind the glovebox, non-cockpit adjustable . I used the microdynamics unit when I needed to move the limit around while in the car. Both have not given me any trouble . I did not take advantage of any of the extra's offered by the microdynamics unit.

Can't find a Pertronix dealer that does the rev limiters in the UK.
Aldon, Burton, etc only carry the Ignitor stuff.
