its the cars that you wanna die, that wont die. I remember hammering the shit outa this 89 integra my uncle had, we were redlining the shit, and power shifting the hell outa it......thing wouldn't die, so he gave it away when he was done with it.

Usually I rip it hard at least once every time I drive it. So I would say about every other day I redline it :D

Every day at least once. I try not to, but it's just too much fun! Not to mention, I'm on a mission to toast my rear tires before I switch to snows.

I don't know why, but after I turned in what must be the slowest times at the BMWclub autocross on Sunday, I've been just killing the car! Self redemption maybe??

nothing wrong with the redline.. but you gotta wait till the engine is up to temp. and build up to it.

Redline? Every time I drive the car. Last time was doing a big, smoking, glorious peelout in the school parking lot. I'm also on a mission to burn up my rears before I put on winters, but the damn cooper cobras are such hard rubber, they barely wear (and barely grip).

My car goes thru hard launches more then it sees redline.I redline my car only if i get an open stretch of road which is barely in New York.
I launch the car at 3500+ rpm atleast 10 times a day.....

I redline about half dozen times a year when the mood strikes. ;) Mostly I take it easy about 3k rpm , city driving and kids/wife in car. But once in a while I take the long way home and hit the 401 to see what I can do. My buddy has been to 225kph in his 92 passat !!!.

Why are the so many people reluctant to redline? I didn't buy my car to lug around in 5th. Theres times I drive I don't let the M3 below 6k! I only shift when I hit the rev limiter *wiggle*

Believe it's not always faster to shift at redline. And lug around in 5th? I've redlined 5th :P I wish I had another gear.

That's problably true... actually, I find it kinda hard NOT to hit the limiter. This thing pulls right up to the limiter, and it happens so fast in the first 2 gears! I need some lessons!

my car might come close to the redline once a week.
usually twice a month i'll give the car a good launch to fourth gear but usually never to 6700rpm....i'm usually shifting around 6000 and 6500rpm.
you have to remember, it's a domestic..and plus the clutch is slipping like a oily whore

i've only redlined the lexus twice and that was because i had a hot biatch in the car who wanted to know what a lex sounded like at WOT :rolleyes:

1st time was for my personal jollies :)

civic....lmao i always drive it at WOT...

Lets see... trip from home to work (or work to home) is 4 miles. I make that trip 4 times a day (2 times each way) and in that alone prolly 8-12 trips to 7,000RPM's. Thats just driving around town lol.

Thats the beauty of having a leased vechile with a warranty.

forget the redline how many of your cars hit the red side of your engine temp

me once a day ;)

Before the charger, 1st and 2nd, all the time. 3rd, 4th and 5th once in a while. Now, not too often. It is too dangerous, plus, the car is too loud under full boost. 1st, all wheel spin, 2nd, some wheel spin and 3rd, 4th, and 5th goes by so quick. At the race track with the RA-1's, redline allllll the time.

Probably no more than once a day. Im afraid that the old M10 will blow before i want it to.

Our cars were made to drive at high revs and high speeds all day long.

For those of you who idle around all day, rev those engines up!!!

The only time I don't hit red line is when my car is warming up ;) :D
