Well since i just got my licence tuesday, i havn't really pushed my car that hard with parents in ^^..well..i noticed that at about 4500rpms the transmition seems to slip or somthing..wierd since the redlines like 6500. What happens is it like..goes out of gear or somthing and just begins revving..(its a 5 speed so im like huh?) is that a rev limiter or somthing and if so why below redline?? im confused..is it bad/?? *sad*

hm...i dunno what the difference would be with a manual, but with an auto tranny that usually means bye bye tranny :(
