Default High Revs

So, I revved my motor up after the end of my drive today. These Accord engines really can rev well. I usually don't rev, but if I am getting tailgated like anything (the word tailgate seems like I created it, cause I remember when I was a lad it seemed like just after I thought of the word tailgate it was all over the news random thought). But, anyways yeah I have an automatic so it obviously can't rev too high but damn that's the best part of the Accord in my opinion. Hopefully a few revs a week don't hurt the engine, any thoughts? That was what appealed to me when this Accord was brand new, and it still feels brand new!

6th generation all the way!

The most I ever revved mine (automatic) is 6 or 6.5k. But, I usually let the rpms go to only 2 or 2.5 k, or I personally prefer 3k before it shifts into each gear. That is an awesome time! 11 seconds! Chiovnidca is that turbo?

Sometimes, there are some bad drivers that force you to rev (i.e. tailgating). Also, had some person come out of a gas station and that person turned right in front of me! Argh! There's no reason to be an aggresive driver (I believe defense is the best idea). For our sake and our Accords sake.

So you've never bounced it off the rev limiter?

Jeez! So, is that your quarter mile time? I am really bad with math or mathematical concepts related to speed. Well, I might have gotten it to 7k once
