: 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.
You can't over-rev on acceleration because of the rev-limiter. It is only when the car speed is over 65 m/h, and there is a shift to 1st or 2nd...in this case, the rear wheel speed via the lower gear carries the engine to over 7200 rpm, now pistons hit valves...rev-limiter in this instance is useless.
