quad 4 DOHC

All i need to know is how much rpms can a quad 4 handle befor it gets bad? I tried to hurry and get out in front of traffic and i first gear i had it up to 6 grand and did not mean it. I was told a 4 bangger can handle it pretty well.
thanks

If you have a tach, it should show a yellow area (caution) and a Redline.

A 22re Redlines around 5500 to 6000. Those are 2.4, 4 cylinders.

oh ok bec i had it in the yellow (6 grand) not good) ever since then it kinda worries me.

Oh and i guess i was asking to how well do they handle that 6 grand mark for only doing it once?

Once - don't worry about it. In competition a lot of guys Redline all gears.

I wouldn't do that in a street car, though.

If you hurt anything the car would let you know.........

If it isnt doing anything strange as a result of your little mishap......I wouldnt think about it again.....
