Default Stayed in first gear waaaaaayyy to long.(7krpm) Got a question

Damn.

I made a big mistake today. Was on the highway and another guy with a old school mustang reved so we took off. I was in first at the time, wasnt paying attention and floored it. I forgot to shift and i felt the car loose power(after 7k rpms ???). I then quickly shifted to second and realized what i had done...

Im sure it reved over 6k-7k Is there a shutoff that happens then....I hope i didnt mess anything up.

Can anyone shine some light on what may happen, happened or if i could have broken anything?

well if the car is stock(tune wise) then all you did was hit the rev limiter. not a biggie..

Thats what the rev-limiter is there for, so you don't rev it to the moon and float valves, just don't make it a habit, its fine.

ya you are fine thanks to ford we have rev limiters to save our butts. i had a guy in a 1999 cobra try messing with me the other day and found his rev limiter and rode it till i reminded him to shift, i'm sure when he got home he was glad that the rev limiter kicked in.
