i was just asking, starting at what speed/rpm do you shift to 5th when cruising? I do it about 4500, but i heard that it might be bad for the engine when you constantly drive on high rpm's

If I'm at 45 mph and I'm not going anywhere fast I'll drop it in 5th. It all depends on what you are doing.

the other day, some guy in a Mitsubishi Eclipse GST (Turbo) was racing this Civic in front of me on the road. He killed the civic, then tried to "flex" his rice-mobile on my ride at a red light. I looked over at him and smiled. As soon as the light turned green, I let my whip rip. We stayed even the first two gears, but after that I left him. When will these kids learn??? Hondas and mitsubishi's crack me up when they try to race.:nono:
