Not that any of this explains why.

If you were to go out and buy yourself a Visible V8 clear plastic engine ($53 on Amazon), you could safely run it at about 100 rpm all day long.

However, if you were to obsessively and methodically upgrade components, you might be able to get it up to 7,000 rpm. That is what the poster of this video did, and as impressive as it is, “obsessive” might be a bit too mild of a word.
