After test driving an 06 tC, and leaving a random riced out old-school corolla in the dust (kinda sad seeing how I've never drivin a tC before--and please dont flame me for maxing out a brand new tC like that, i just wanted to see what the car was made of, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who abuses floor models), I wasn't shifting looking at the tach, I was shifting when the car stopped pulling in each gear. But after glancing down a few times really quick (we all know how fast stuff happens when your adrenaline is pumping and you're in a race), I know I at least hit 7K (got rubber in first and second). BUT, after riding around with my bud who owns an 05 auto tC, his car wont let him rev past about 5500 rpm. So I'm wondering... at what point does the tC with a 5speed (what i test drove) rev limit you, and what does the auto limit you at?
