am i reading this wrong? b/c i was under the impression that if you had a 7000 rpm rev limiter, if would cut fuel or spark (or both) and "limit" you to 7000 rpm... rendering "10,000RPMs on an engine that has a 7000RPM rev limiter" impossible--unless your rev limiter was broke...

Is a rev limiter the same as redline? I know a guy who had is car up to redline (7000RPMs) in 4th gear, went to shift into 5th, and went into 3rd instead up to 10,000RPMS.

redline is actually a value, not a tangible object. it is the maximum rpm the factory recommends running your engine at. it differs from vehicle to vehicle. a rev limiter actually physically keeps you from exceeding a redline.

i tried to keep it simple and concise, someone please come poke holes in it...

And then there is the governer which limits the top speed to what the factory wants it. Correct me if I am wrong but don't they do that because of how the chassis is built and the speed ratings on the tires?
