    I think I baby the hell out of my car. I've probably redlined less than 15 times and I'm at 2800 miles. Gone WOT maybe 5 times.

    But doing it rarely makes the times when I do do it much more fun

    You have a long wait depending on how much you drive and your patience.

    You can go WOT, just don't go over 4K But just be careful in 1st and 2nd gears. Going WOT is like lighting a rocket, nothing happens until you hit about 3K, then watch out!

    Enjoy your new toy!

    I am at 3000 miles Woots all day. I didn't break 4k for the first 1000 with an oil change. Then I didn't break 5k for the next 1000 with another oil change. Since 2000 I have been wootin alot, I haven't broke 6500 and the car is fast enough.

    ^umm, you did an oil change every 1000 miles!?

    whats the correct way to WOT without hurting your transmission, since ive heard poeple blowing their 3rd gears which has the most acceleration. or is it one of those, if it happens it happens

    Shift into 3rd gear. Depress accelerator to the floor.

    Hit 1000 miles on xmas day. A couple of WOT runs. Doesn't compare to the torque monster of the LS1, but it moves.

    Congrats!!! Shortly your car will start making a loud sucking sound. You will notice that your wallet is getting lighter and the car will be going faster.
