Is it an automatic? I am assuming that it would keep shifting if it so required. If it's manual, then no way.

i don't think the cruise control activates untill you are going about 30+ mph, at least that how it was on my old car, never tried in this. But automaic will shift unless u have ur shifter set to "1". Manual not gonna shift itself, ever.

I think my cruise only works in 4th or 5th...at least it did on my 2000 impreza, maybe only 5th actually.

For the sake of your car, please don't try it though...it will accelerate and then hit the rev limiter and cut-out.
its MT n just curious, lol bet some of you though about it be4

I've never thought about that

in theory it would stop accelerating at the ECU's programmed rev limit

it's not as if it's just a simple "ON" switch for the throttle... it's pretty smart
