Does anyone know if the Veloster N Performance has an active Rev Limiter?

I've noticed after launching a couple times when I don't shift fast enough the vehicle seems to cut out just before reaching the red-line. I don't usually like to even attempt going into the red, but I wanted to know if this is occurring because of an active Rev Limiter or if i'm just topping out the gear and potentially causing damage.

Has anyone else had this experience?

Do you just notice in 1st gear, any idea if the shift lights max out before the tach? I'm wondering if the tach might just be lagging a bit under those conditions.

I don't know of one modern performance based car that does not have a fuel cut off at its rated max RPM. The N most definitely has that protection built in the ECU parameters.


However! extended max rpm (bouncing of limiter) is not good for the engine. When I drive hard I always max the RPM or you are not utilizing the complete power band. I only wish the N had a little more headroom like the type R @7500rpm

I've noticed it happen in 1st twice and in 2nd once. It's honestly been hard to see exactly because the tach is going through so quickly and I'm really trying to watch the road when it has happened. I haven't tried to re-create it while specifically watching the tach closely yet. In these few cases by the time I see the red shift lights pop and before I can shift to the next gear the revs go down and I essentially get negative Gs.

Yeah it could easily be the fuel cut off if that's the case. A little more headroom would be huge for someone like me that gets tunnel vision sometimes. I haven't had a manual for 6 or 7 years, so I'm sure I'll get better at shifting before hitting that limiter the more time I spend in the Veloster N.
