Its according to the ECU /chip your running in your motor . Some are unlimited in RPMS . Most F-1 motors will last a session at 8450 ( their set rev limit ) I have modified Drag motor that "will" turn 11,300 Rpms in a 10 second pass but that wouldn't last for long ..

Cheers,
Jay

Send a message via AIM to Burty
look for the serial number on the back of the ecu
standard rev limits are consumer 7750, race offshore 8250 or drag 11500rpm
