is there such a thing that puts your transmission into a safety gear or something, so that you cant rev above a certain rpm or hurt the trans, it its already in bad conditions? i dunno, that might have been a dumb question, but i just wanna know.

Yes and it is very dangerous I think. Basically if a unusual condition occurs it will cut itself off and send a signal the the ECU for a engine cut also!

I went to fast from reverse to drive and the car was slightly rolling backward when I switched to drive and my car cut off! Now had I been in the middle of traffic trying to make a quick maneuver, I would be dead.
