    I recently bought a used 2014 Raptor and as i was playing around with it i realized that it doesn't allow me to hold the break and rev over 1500 RPM. no matter what the mode is whether it be normal, Sport (trac control off) or Off-Road mode it wont let me rev any higher. Anyone know a easy fix or adjustment i can make?

    Thank you in advance

    Can you explain a little more about “when you hold the break”?

    when i held the break in order to rev up to get a better start off the line. a few of my buddies were racing on a grass strip and they all got me off the line because of my slow start.

    You need to have it in neutral, rev it as high as it’ll go while floored and then pop it into drive when the race starts. That will get you off the line the fastest.

    assuming this guy is just a noob and really does not know....

    Called "Brake Torque".... Put your foot on the brake, and in the gas at the same time. The revs should hold around 1,500-2,000 depending on the stall speed of the transmission. When the light goes green, let your foot off the brake, and mash the gas.

    In a non boosted car, all you are doing is getting closer to peak power and transmission engagement by doing that. May shave .001 off a 1/4 mile time.

    In a turbo, you are spooling up the turbos to get rid of lag and have peak power on hand when you mash the gas.

    Mustangs and a few other sports cars all have launch controll to allow you to do this automagically...but no trucks have launch controll.
