What should be the break in if any for our cars?
drive it like you stole it........

I took it easy(compared to how i drive it now) for the first 500 miles, but I still hit WOT several times everyday......

I was pretty aggressive with this engine

I've also heard that extended hwy runs at the same speed and rpm's is not recommended..........anyone know if there's any truth behind this??

Meister??

Not that I could ever fill in for the Meister, but here are the two links that he forwarded to me and I followed a little bit of both.

take Meister's advice...
any advice from either myself or DanRealtor should be avoided and ignored...
as we subscribe to one train of thought...
Turn and Burn...
ok...
more than one...
there is stomping on it all the time...
and then there is really stomping on it ALL of the time...
out to the edge...
is the only way these cars are really meant to be driven...
and trust me they really like it when they are pushed to the limit...
now if I can just find somewhere without trees growing out of the asphalt huh Meister?
Meister - FYI - you know the road we annilated?
closed with 2 feet of snow on it...
