I ran at redline ( or within 500 rpm of it, unless I had braked and was
accelerating towards it ) for about a half an hour doing a canyon-speed
race thing. ( It's a thing with me and my friends.... I can do 25
minutes, which is the fastest.. If I upgraded my suspension and tires,
damn! ( these are all 99% + stock cars with shitty student tires ))
My car didn't do anything funny. Wasn't even that hot. If it matters, I
have a K&N in there for improved upper end.
