one of our cars is a hornet (98 escort zx2) we are having a problem with hitting the rev limiter. we run a 1/3 mile dirt D track and we are hitting it in the back stretch in 2nd gear.
when you use 3rd gear the car is unstable and losses alot of momentum. I can put any taller of a tire under it and dont know how to change limiter speed. any options i missed or advice out there?

if you are still using the stock electronics
give hypertech or any other hotrod programmers a call it should be an easily changed parameter, while your at have em tune it for ya, fuel timing etc is all done by the pcm.
