There is no ignition cut. The fuel supply is reduced till the rpm goes below the limter. Once below again the fuel is injected, if you are still pressing the accelerator pedal and if you hit the limiter again it will cut the fuel again and repeat. As a result you will get an on and off feeling if you continue to floor the pedal at the redline. Your engine will not shut down.

Diesels also have the rev limiter.

Is there no limiter in diesel cars like Skoda, especially vRs.
lol. The vRS is a turbocharged petrol which will also have the revlimiter.

Ok - anyway this is a funny thread now - but I am sure it has been informative to some including you Ym!

BTW a silly question - do bikes also have rev-limiters?

I am guessing that the new FI ones do. The old carbs ones don't.

The old carb'd bikes suffer from the same problems as old carb'd cars. So even for old carb'd bikes Rahul's explanation on top for cars holds good.
