I was getting on the highway today. While I was trying to shifted from third to fourth, I accidentally got the stick into neutral instead of fourth. So, when I step on the gas,
the rpm went up to 5000 + range. Did I over-rev it ?

When I realize the mistake, I quicky take my foot off the gas and then rev it to 3000rpm before I shift it back to fourth (smoothly).

Will I mistake damage the car ?

Thanks in advance,
