Redline 17000!

Discussion in '1965 Ferrari 275 GTB ‘Cliente Competizione’' started by copter944, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. Redline 17000! So What! check out last seasons ferrari!

    So what if the jordan redlines at 17000 last years ferrari redlined at just over 18000.
    its not often that you see a ferrari break down but jordans hardly finished a race last season

    17000 is nothing. renault says that either last years or this years car (either one) is supposed to rev above 20000k abd redline 21000. but who knows
     
  3. Re: Redline 17000!

    That is very believeable but the other guy saying a car redlined at 20,000k is not believeable because that is like 20,000,000 revs. just correcting your little mistake. <!-- Signature -->

    Even at just over 17,000, the Honda engine sadly revs a lot lower than the other F1 engines. That's why for Imola they bumped up the rev limiter by about 500 rpm and hoped nothing would go wrong. Thankfully none of the Honda powered cars blew an engine. It's ironic that a car company known for making high-reving engines has one of the lowest rev limits in F1 racing.

    Well, if you look at the competition: McLaren, Ferrari... so Honda and Toyota prolly sell the cheapest cars in F1. But also look at the budget of the top 3 teams, it just towers over the compeition. Also, Honda has to spilt its support for 2 teams instead of 1 which all the other teams aren't doing. Ah well, we still got CART where Honda whoops the competition, last 6 driver championships are all powered by Honda!

    The maximun rpm for all f1 engines is 18000rpm. And the engine makers can choose to have the redline at any rpm they would like. Usuaully, the higher the redline, the engine will become less reliable.<!-- Signature -->

    Wow
     
  9. Re: Redline 17000!

    uhhh Williams BMW powerplant just reached 19000rpm at monza but proved to be unreliable. they've already been working on that and next years engine will be running at 19000rpm for sure.

    BMW's qualifying engine revs to 19550(race-18500)
    Ferrari's qualifying engine revs to 18900(race-18500)
    Mercedes qualifying engine revs to 18550(race-18400)
    Cosworth's qualifying engine revs to 18000(race-17900)
    Renault's qualifying engines revs to 18200(race-18000)
    Asiatec's qualifying engine revs to 18000(race-17500)
    Honda's qualifying engine revs to 17000(that is pitiful, even asiatec's race engine runs higher then that, and asiatec sucks ass, what is honda doing over there.)

    Honda's very new to the F1 scene and they will soon learn that the higher the revs are, the better off you will be. Ferrari's rev much higher than the honda, but are still very, very reliable, which is the key to winning in F1

    that was honda's first engine in melbourne. They made a lot of progress in terms of engine power. The engine was pumpin out 875hp at indy. So don't underestimate honda, they will come back soon.
