Re: The Red Mark

     This past weekend I missed a shift and when I looked at the tack it 
     was coming down from above the first "red mark".  I don't know how 
     high it went but I immediately got that warm fuzzy feeling.  I pulled 
     over and checked oil pressure and idle smoothness and every thing 
     seemed fine.  I better make a sacrafice to the Audi gods for this one.

	Depends which red "mark" you are talking about.  The very last 
red "mark" will indeedy hurt.  The first red "mark" while just a wittle 
bit high for each shift--will take much longer to cause pain:)
	As for the high revs, best advice is to back your right foot off 
a little when you press your left foot in [down].  Think of it as 
dancing, not clogging [sp?].
