Yes there is a safety in the trans to prevent going over 4k in park or neutral. This is to protect the transmission. You should be able to bury the tach in to the redline when I gear. Especially in sport mode.

I would have never guessed you meant when not in gear.

Re: 2012 3.6l Rev over 4000?

That can't be good for the engine. Why would you rev it so high in park or neutral?

So you can slam it in gear and burn rubber. Haven't you done that on your dad's car?....lol.

This is one reason why we don't get a 100k powertrain warranty on all vehicles!

It usually works better to stand on the brakes and rev it up in gear. There's a bit of bog to start instead of instant pavement recoating, but at least you didn't blow the transmission. Not sure how the V6 version of the ZF would handle that...

If I do that it wont turn past 2300 rpm unless I let the brakes slip some. But I have the 3.7 and 5 speed. I dont think the 3.6 would fair much better.
