best thing you can do: take it to an autoX you'll really get to knwo the handling/accelleration after that.

man i remember when i broke 1,000 miles. i was on my way back from chicago. it was the best feeling ever ebcause i didnt' have to vary my speed anymore. (55 to 60 to 45 to 65 to 50 gets old). though by taking a raod trip my 1000 miles was over in 2 days. lol

though i would have just driving around anyway. I couldnt keep myself out the of drivers seat for like 3 weeks.

that was easy...december 30th. between dayton and indianapolis. and between indie and gary indiana. i only hit 45 once or twice. i tried my best to stay under 3,000 rpm so i think thats right at 68. and of course i only hit 45 after everyone had passed me.

really for normal highway (5 to 10 miles) i think you can vary enough, but i was going 400 miles. not my brightest move, but i had a couple really good reasons to do it.

make sure ur dad takes it out once a week or so, maybe around ur neighborhood for 5 min. not good to just let the car sit there
