That is what i do. Hit the end of the gas pedal (enough so it shifts right at 4500 rpm) then dig into it after it shifts. Then it screams to 6 grand. I also wait for my engine temp to get to 200 before even taking it over 3,000RPM. I always idle my car for 5 minutes before i even take off.
I dont think you can truly damage the tranny by doing it once in a while like that from a stop like the vid. The 4T60-E should still be pretty robust. Just change the fluid every 2 yrs and it should be good
What i have been doing lately is taking off in 2nd gear and pressing maybe 40% throttle so it shifts at 5k, then let it coast down when coming to a stop...sounds soo good out the back when you do that. hehe.
