Max Rpm "the Redline" Reference

I think their may be a redline.
Just looked at a setup of mine in GPLsetup for the 69 extra Matra.
Shows a bold redline in the lower graph. If you follow an imaginary line upwards to the upper graph it appears to relate to a redline of 10,000 to 10,100 Max RPM.
Will look at some other car setups for other mods via GPLsetup and see if the cos worth Max RPM differs.
Hopefully I'm reading the graphs correctly.
Would be good to know. A list as you say would be really useful for all cars.

Guess I'm wrong.
Looked at a setup for a 67 Lotus 49.
Lower graph redline moved.. but up not down as expected to a lower max redline.
Actually realise now it relates to Max top speed in relation to gearing. Not revs.

It was in the tech data for the cars in another sim.
I'm trying to remember. May have been in Assetto Corsa or something.
If I find it will try to copy info and list it here.
Whether its correct or not is another matter.
But this info must be within the GPL community somewhere as it must surely be basic data to have been able to build all the specific mods.

I agree it would be helpful to know when engine damage starts for each car, but the values given in the player info screen aren't too bad indications.

That said, a solid redline number for each 67 car would be handy. The red dots in GPLSM shows the redline, at the 90% powerband graphic. But it's a bit hard to read correctly. The Team Info only shows max BHP at a certain RPM, but that is clearly under the redline ofcourse, at least for most cars.
Depending on the engine characteristic, you can/have to use more revs, or less. For the BRM more, the Brabham less, for example.
PS: sometimes you don't redline at all, because the engine would overheat (for example Honda), or you would be slower (Brabham). All in all there's simply no basic guideline to keep the engine safe. Most of it you have to learn by practice an experience, by racing.
