I have used a rev limiter for the last three years. We have two cars and run rev limiters on both of them. One has a complete MSD ignition system and the other has a HEI dist. with a MSD conversion kit. We had alot of trouble with the HEI misfiring at high rpm until we installed the MSD kit on it.
I like the rev limiter because if I go to a different track and don't have the correct gear I don't have to worry about over revving my engine.
