It may with more miles / adaptives in it. 1st to 2nd shifts a little earlier than 2nd to 3rd Mine shifts in sport mode "D" at 6400 but that is with the shift points raised and rev limiter set to 6600.I've only just got past the 500 mile break in, but when I got on it the other day it seemed to be shifting at 6,000 when I had it in drive. I put it in sport mode and shifted myself and I think I got 6,200 out of it. I kind of expected it to hold gear until 6,200 when in drive.
Maybe the 6200 is where the autos shift stock... I've never logged a stock tune run to see where it shifts but it probably is a couple hundred less than red line which would be 6200.
Whenever I am racing I always keep the pedal to the floor and make sure I see the tach hit 6k, then I shift as fast as I can knowing I'm close to the redline/cutoff(because I do agree that the analog gauge has to lag the actual number slightly) but I have never hit it or noticed a fuel cut off.perhaps the slight delay from motor to display. I would assume the tach is behind the motor by a number of hundredths of a sec ( exactly how many I don't know) You press the gas the motor reacts, the tach then reacts to the motor. If the tach reads 6000 the motor is probably a little higher as your still on the gas. Maybe the do it to keep you from going over accidently. This is just a guess, I know about as much as you, just trying to put some logic into it..lol.
There is definitely no difference between the cars' engines or transmissions. It's most likely an Edmonds error...shocked!Maybe you guys can clear this up but I'm seeing two different redline numbers posted online.
Track Tested Shootout: 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Vs. 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
Charger - 6400rpm redline
Challenger - 6250rpm redline
Maybe explains the discrepancy?
I checked out that link. Interesting I never saw something like that. Why do you think they do that? Just wondering.Possible... Not just Edmonds though. I know sometimes the fuel cut off and rpm limiter get posted depending on the source... I have a 200rpm gap between limiter and fuel cut. That's why I asked.
Edit. Like this...
Fuel cutoff listed as 6400, rev limiter 6200.
