Top Speed probably @ 90mph

Never paid attention to RPM. Shift when it sounds and feels right.

What is the purpose of the question? :dunno:

Sorry, I want mine to last a long time. I can't see how driving it hard and putting undue stress on it, is good for the car.

stress

if yours is anything like my 86 it should last you at least 30 yrs. mines goin on 24 runs strong and i push her everyonce in a while. same with the red one with 156k. theyre hondas not audis...very reliable very comfortable. im sure thats why you own more than one like myself.. to make it short. its not good for the car, but its not bad either. and i also auto x the red one so i was lookin to see if anyone has pushed it until something broke, engines trannys ect. .....

I've seen 100mph or so in mine, on a closed course. :lmao:

With normal driving I shift around 3k. When spirited driving is needed, I shift wherever I feel like is best at that moment.

3k is like the perfect area for our cars to shift. i was on my way to work this am and on the highway onramp got some vtec poppin' sounds amazing with the straight pipe and header. :D

I've hit 115 and have red lined through several gears many times....our cars love high rpms (4cyl). Around town I shift around 3.5-4k.

well, the majority of the miles that i put on her was when i was in school for meteorology for 7 months in mississippi. jan-august 2008. mostly used for trips to panama city fl, p-cola, tx, mobile al, and storm chasing....

storm chasing with a moonroof on your car can be unnerving, especially when you feel shockwaves from lightning bolts 100 feet away.... :paranoid: :eek:

bought her with 104k miles on her, sold her yesterday with almost 169k miles. she would have close to 300k by now were it not for my 2 yr tour in japan.... :cool: :banana:

she's still running like the day i bought her.

i got rid of her for 2 main reasons:

1. burn oil at rate of qt/1k miles towards the end, no matter what i did...

2. developed a misfire at idle on cylinder #3.

if it weren't for that, i'd still have her. i'm glad tho that i could help out a friend with a generally good condition car for him to commute with. and i'm very happy with my purchase of the 07 as well.

I normally shift at 3k. But I have red lined every gear except for 5th, and have touched 120 where it seemed to stop at. Don't know if its governed or if aerodynamics played a part in that one. That being said I try to not get excessive cause I do enjoy my 27mpg avg that I have going right now lol
