Governers/rev limiters need practise, because as The Villan said at the start, sometimes you get yourself in a position where , if you haven't got performance, you are dead.

Sometimes you are dead anyway, of course. But trucks are driven by professionals, cars usually by amateurs.

Governers could, theoretically, be computer controlled to give perhaps two ungoverned bursts of power per hour.
