QUOTE(Glenster @ 4 Dec 2009, 07:47 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>is that with the clutch in? i think there is a limit so u cant over rev, some people say its launch control but its not.

Ford told me about this when i bought the car it is normal. He said its a failsafe of some sort to protect the engine from over revving when idle, kinda like some of the rally cars have.

It's more a case of protecting the transmission from you winding it up to the redline and dumping the clutch, you can rev it as high as you like in neutral if you keep off the clutch.

Comparing it to what rally cars have is how people get kidded into thinking the ST has Launch Control, it's classic dealer bull poop.
