There's no reason to run this engine between 5-6k unless your accelerating. I cruse as low as possible, and shift to 3.5-4k to pass someone.

I think he means you're showing a lot of restraint in not ragging on it all the time. :wink:

Ahhhhh.... I get it. I'm a little slow sometimes ;)

I give it a good flogging. At 4500 miles, she's just getting broke in.

Mostly in first gear :oops: I'm golden for the rest, but I do take it to (not over) redline once in a while.

limiter

I'm used to being able to run up to 7600 RPM in my 98 R/T, so it takes
a little getting used to. I generally only hit it in first gear, usually accelerating off a right-hand turn. :oops:

I've hit it a few times. It's annoying as hell. When I'm racing, or showing off, I like to shift as close to redline as possible. But for daily driving I usually shift at 3.5k - 4k.

I used to drive a '99 Civic Si with 8000 redline and fuel cut at 8250 rpm, so yes, I've hit the rev limiter a few times on this car! :oops:

I've only hit the limiter once on the track (not good for times). On the street I tend to shift between 3.5 and 4 unless I'm showing off then its redline baby :twisted:
