'11 SVT Revs going slightly PAST redline when foot off gas


Recommended Posts

Hi all. Just broke 1000 miles on my new 2011 Sterling Grey SVT...can't get enough of the GT500.


The other day I was in an open area, temps were warm enough, and I decided to open her up a bit. Traction control on, close to WOT and did my 1-2 shift right at or near 6k. It's probably because I'm not experienced with the car yet, or maybe I'm just a slowpoke shifter with her, but noticed that the revs seemed to go a little past 6k. I don't think I hit the limiter because it was kind of a short "gradual" move past 6k, before I was into 2nd gear and the rpm's came back down. it also feels like the RPM's come down too "slowly" when I take the foot off of the gas to shift.


My last car was an '08 Z06, and I noticed that when I would make my near redline shifts, at WOT, as soon as I let off of the gas the RPM's would immediately drop. With the GT500, it seemed like when I let go of the gas the RPM's still increased at bit (maybe +300rpms?), until I applied throttle in 2nd gear.


Does this sound right? Is this a by-product of the supercharger? Drive-by-wire getting in the way?

So does mine... Well except when I power shift. LOL Some people are just stick shift drivers when they are born... lol Just kidding, but really, my 2010 F-150 does it too. Its way more noticeable with the truck but I know what ya mean. It drives me crazy!!!
