When you hit the limiter. The redline actually changes based on gear, engine temperature and a number of other inputs.

The Red Line is at 6000rpm. Because in the Motor Mag they are testing the early BAs and they had a pic of the dash and there is a red line . As I said it is at 6000rpm.

On my XR8 ute the limiter seems to come on just before 6000. So maybe 5800-5900.

Well, my Pursuit hits the limiter at what appears to be as low as 5700rpm. Maybe the tacho can't keep up but it's annoying because it ruins the run straight away.

it's variable, depending on all sorts of things. It's not marked. It's around 6200 for 6's

Re: where is redline for ba?

i know on F1 cars the redline is different in every gear..i think that redline goes down as the gears go up..not too sure tho..but imagine your max power is 4,000 and redline is around 5,000 for 1st gear.and most of the power/powerband around 3,000-5,000..in 1st u change at 5,000 your revs drop to maybe 3,000..but from 4th at 4,500 to 5th might drop only to 3,500..close enough to your max power to allow more acceleration..if you revved it to 5,000 in 4th you might hit 3,900..right on max power but you would run out of puff in another 300rpm..does any1 understand what im sayin?..caus i dont..lol
