the more you do it. the less amount of miles are taken away from its life.

i go to redline frequently. the engines are designed with red line limitations for a reason. so you can take it to the max baby. actually it is good for the car helps burn away carbon deposits. just dont do it on downshift because you may blow your motor if you go to high.
