172 rev limiter...

The redline on my car is at 7200, and the rev limiter comes in at 6800rpm. Is it me or does this sound like French logic here? How am I supposed to drive that on a track day?

Has anyone else had this problem, and do you have any suggestions for a "cure"?

Grateful for any help.

Your car isnt warmed up enough. I think someone once said on here that it was related to the oil temp. Mine does the same until the oil/engine is fully warmed up - usually takes over 10 minutes - even when the needle is half way up the guage.

No problem. Its really annoying when you think its warmed up and it isnt and you go to toast someone and the limiter comes on early - those extra 400 rpms really are needed!!!

Any luck with the limiter since you tried warming it more?
