In Reply to: Is it over-rev ??? Help ! posted by CK on January 04, 2000 at 17:04:53:
Don't quote me on this, but I believe I've heard/read that anything over 7,200 is considered an over rev. You were well under the redline so I don't think there'd be anything to worry about.
: 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,
