my syncro on my manual tranny wont let me downshift at a redline speed..ie downshifting to 2nd gear @65. maybe my trannys just old..idk
as for redlining..i redline 3-4 times a day if not more..car runs fine. spiffs old E30 had 200000 miles on it...and he still redlined it daily.
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon...
