Recently purchased a 2014 Z51 with about 13K miles. Just yesterday I accelerated in 2nd gear to about redline and I noticed it seemed like the engine suddenly dropped off for a split second.

Is that normal and is it to keep the engine from going past redline?

Thank you in advance, Hawksnest.

If you bumped into your rev limiter, then yes it is normal.
