rx7's come from the factory with this round thing. it has red.uuuuummmmm lines on it. that would be the factory redline and yes they have redlines. they like to rev and are less to damage anything over revving but it depends. the redline is there for a reason

oh yeah, like most things that that are physical, rotary engines have natural frequencies / yield stresses / fatique limits / etc.



as a result, rotary engines have red lines, or a limit as to how fast the internal parts can revolve without failing. this might be a surprise because of the deseptively smooth, free revving nature of the wankel, however, it is purely a myth. ROTARIES HAVE A REDLINE, JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER ENGINE.

just think, with no redline, you wouldn't need gears! put it in first and keep going

you mean im not suppose to do that!



Heres a little story one day i decided to let someone i know drive my car they started out going nice and easy through the first few gears and then started to push a little harder. I told them not to go over redline, they look over and ask wheres the redline i dont see it? I amediatly had them pull my car over and get out.
