you can pull it all the way to 6500rpm no hassles ,just that your ripping your engine bad ..

a mpfi zen has a max of 6k rpm.





i thinkin 5th gear mine does 100 at 3200 rpm,80kph at 2600rpm ,60 kph at 2000 rpm.


its 120 at 3600 rpm but till 4000 there is no increasein speed.its 160 speedo at 5000 rpm.




in the 4th gear its 160 at 6000 rpm.


second gear 5000 is 70 kph(not sure)



since your's is a carb zen,it has alimit of 6500 rpm.

no man only if u cross the limiter it willsuffer...but till 60 i do not think it suffers...read the manual..you will get to know whats the max rpm of the car...displays 8..must be 7.? something...can pull till that much and it wil touch 60..or do 1 thing just test it by yourself...pull it hard..keep your on on the speed and the rpm..1ce u get a jerk and feel that the car is not feeling strong ...shift to 2nd...do not pull it after u feel that jerk and loss of complete power...itll definately touch 60 and remember the rpm meter...whenever you drag next..you will have to be particular and shift accordingly...
if you overrev many times and for along time..it will affect your engine in the sense..it will get too hot..so better not do it many times...might happen sometimes for half a second or something..but better if it doesnt happen

the OHC does not do 60k's in 1st ..I am sure you'll hit the limiter before that..

see when you hit the limiter ..you'll feel a knock down ..your revs wont rise niether wil your speed ..car will lose forward momentum..keep pushing in the same gear and you'll badly damage the internals !overheat ,blow your pistons..

why are you so obsessed with 1st gear top speed anyways ?
