Redline

Hi I know this is a knobby question, but at what revs are you thrashing a V8.  There’s no redline and was wondering.

There is little practical point revving beyond 6500rpm.

There is fuel set-off ECU protection against overrevving:

7000rpm 

7400rpm on V8-GT

In reality - anything above tick over can be pushing your luck for a V8 - Just ask Barry. :getmecoat:
