Had an i30 with all the kit fitted as standard. My ZS is a much more simple and fun car with less to go wrong.

Anyway, I noticed I can't rev my 1.0 Ecoboost engine past 4k revs when it's cold, now this to me seems a great idea if it's a feature to protect a cold engine.

Anyone else noticed?

It only revs to 4k in neutral so you don't redline it when not driving to reduce engine wear and misuse.

I'm sure it's just the build in launch control :)

I launch off fast on 2k revs. 4k
Launch will spin the wheels like mad am you will have a poor launch I'm sure it's a safety feature so when your not
Moving it doesn't rev up the 3 cylinder without popping it without motion.

I'm sure it's to prevent putting strain on all the running gear.
It's a feature on most new fords to prevent clutch damage at high revs. I remember my Mk 2.5 ST did it in first and Second.

Hi everyone,

 

Just joined the forums after ordering mine just before Christmas and should be getting it in March. Ordered it in deep impact blue, but I am still unsure if I should add the 17" alloys to it.

I have the 17's on mine and my daughter hasn't. IMO the wheels make the car, have them, and ask for a sore wheel kit too instead of the can of puncture goo!

i would highly recommend the 17s that ford have compared to the 16s, for me the 16s look plastic and the 17s stand out alot more, but it is personal preference
