i doubt revving to 3-4K is going to cause any problems. practice makes perfect, right lance?

Haha, I hope not. I'm at 800ish miles and I've had it up at 6K once or twice. I'm trying to take it easy, but DAMN, it's hard. I'm going to get the oil changed at 1500... My philosophy is that driving it easy for a while is good, "break it in" and whatever, but you also have to break in the higher rev's, you know, if after 3000 miles your car has never seen 5500rpm, it's not going to be to happy when you go, "ok, i'm all broken in now, time to race!"
