I don't know what to tell you but the rev limiter kick in at between 6200 and 6500. Any higher would not do you any good since you will loose all power at that range.

the knock sensor is the main reason for that in hyundai's. if the car isen't knocking at the red line the car will continue to rev but like cottonmouth said your engine isen't making any power up there and all you are doing is hurting your valvetrain.
