For my daily driving I try to keep the 1.5L under 3000rpm with the exception of highway cruising, 75mph is done at 3300rpm.

I floor it occasionally only out of first gear. I CHIRPED MY 1-2 SHIFT YESTERDAY HAHAHAHAHA
though I'm automatic and I'm fairly certain thats not a good sign.

At Bonneville meets, WOT always just in order to keep up.
