Mustang EcoBoost - Turbo 4cyl - 2.3L
4.7 sec 0-60mph on 3600lbs car
When revving in neutral at WOT it takes like 0.9 seconds to go from 1200rpm to 5000rpm
The physics don't seem right. So I'm thinking it's electronically limited by software to not go all out in neutral.
Since I feel like if it can take a 3600lbs car from 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds it should be able to rev itself by 3800rpm in like 0.1 seconds, not 0.9 seconds.
My question is how many times faster could cars rev if they weren't electronically limited like this? I didn't do the kinetic energy calculations to see how quick in theory it could be based on 0-60 of the car since I feel there would be less efficiency due to lower load when revving.
What could it do?
