launch control

while my mcs is in the dealer being repaired i have a mini cooper diesel. In first gear with the clutch pressed it wont rev over 2 and half thousand revs. Is this some sort of basic launch control. Also i must admit it flies from a standing start because of this

No, its not launch control, its just protecting the engine, why would you want to rev it to 2500rpm with the clutch in anyway. The engine only freely revs to just over 4000rpm.


I dont need to make my car go faster, I just need to learn to drive it faster.

I have to agree that the thought of revving a diesel to over 2.5K with the clutch in seems kinda crazy! Why on earth would you do this?

Fair point! I guess we all grow up eventually! (I'm still waiting though)
