I'm not completely sure I understand what you're asking. Posting a link to the video might help. Are you talking about them redlining the car and then shifting it? Or are you talking about them shifting it into second, and when it's in 2nd gear, it's still redlining? If it's the first (redlining and then shifting), the person probably either doesn't know how to drive and/or has no concept of proper shift points. You should never let it bounce off the rev limiter like that, at least not too much. Also, the more time you spend redlining it, the more acceleration you've wasted. Because when you redline an engine, you're not going to be able to go any faster than the current speed, until you shift into a higher gear. It also puts un-needed stress on the engine.If it's the 2nd one (redlining even after shifting into 2nd gear), this could be a couple things. The throttle cable could be stuck on it (I'd have to see the video for this one). The clutch could be shot, and slipping after engagement. The tires could be spinning, and the driver could be holding down the gas while waiting to get traction. The driver could be doing it intentionally, to keep in higher rpms, which would likely be where the most power is. This is where you hold down the clutch pedal, hold down the gas pedal to keep the rpms high, and then let out the clutch while still rev'ing it. When holding in the clutch pedal, the rpms will redline until the clutch engages.But like I said, if you post a link to the specific video, you'll get better help.
