Audible Sound Ahead Of Rev Limiter

Sure would be nice to have a chime or other type of sound occur about 200 rpm below where the rev limiter kicks in.

Kinda hard to watch both the tach and the road under aggressive/competitive driving conditions.

Anyone else thought about this or know of an easy way to incorporate such a feature?

Thanks. I remember doing a test drive in an RX-7 the first year it came out. The rotary engine was so quiet and smooth that the car had a buzzer that sounded at or just before redline. The RX-8 may still have a similar feature.

I've found myself bouncing off the rev limiter a couple of times, usually in 1st gear, under aggressive driving conditions while trying to watch the road. I would imagine that's not good for the Goat.

actually the rev limiter is there as a safety feature, your not really hurting anything.

Also, it's good to know that the engine won't suffer if I do accidentally hit the limiter.

I plan to buy a second vehicle shortly, giving me the opportunity to park the Goat while the cluster is shipped to you for reprogramming.

BTW, I'm assuming that this modification won't impact my vehicle warranty.

Thanks!
