they also put 1.5 litre engines in the Accents, it keeps the speed pretty much under control....:D

Pretty sure it works off a reed switch...
When the pistons reach the magical number of 72fps (or is it 75) it activates the switch and cuts power...

LC accent has a hard cut at 7100rpm i think...
Keeping in mind that the redline is 6500rpm for a twin cam and 6000rpm for single...




Cheers

I had my 2001 Accent GSi wrapped up to 205 kph on the flat praries of Saskatchewan, Canada on one of my many trips to Calgary and Edmonton. I was actually suprised how stable it felt. Note: was running 215/60/15 Kuhmo Ecsta Supra 710s at the time, not the factory 14" wheels and tires.
