Ok so another odd question... Revving the motor? - Page 3 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Lounge For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

Lighting up the tires is no cooler than revving your engine out of gear. If you are stupid enough to rev the H*** out of your engine, then you deserve to blow up your trans from lighting up the tires.

OSG....the original question was asking if he could do it safely. Let'* refrain from wondering who'* cool or not and saying that people are stupid or not.

The answer should come as a Yes it'* safe or no it'* bad for the motor, with a little further explaination on either.

Filling the car up with people makes no difference. "No load" means not in gear..just in case that'* why you asked about filling your car with people

I also wouldn't recommend it. If you rev it once or twice and NEVER do it again, sure you won't ruin anything, but just don't get too crazy. I mean, I never did it in DrugRunner, at least never above 2500, and that was just to hear the exhaust note, and was only a once or twice kind of thing only. I never revved to the limiter.

My brother had a Firebird once and he CONSTANTLY revved the heck out of it in P and/or N, and since the Firebird did not have a rev limiter, he easily got it up to 6,000rpms! (I am witness to this, 6K+) And he did this on a somewhat regular basis because "it'* fun." <--- his words. I wish I could say he destroyed the engine so some people will choose not to do it themselves, but he didn't have the car too long and he didnt get a chance to blow it up. I'm sure if he still had the car it would be sitting in a junkyard somewhere.

Read on. It'* discussing practically what we are, after that bit of sarcasm at the beginning.


I spy Mr. BonneMeMN in that [H] thread also

2000-3000 Rpms will sound best on a 3800.... You can rev to 4000 rpms but it is not reccomended... If you rev at all please do this in park, and very briefly.... Open the windows and take a little cruise and you find that you'll like hearing the exahust, like music to your ears

So it more or less says Reving the **** out of the motor is not healthy.... While others say it is...

Interesting, but nothing that will ever make me rev the Living Crapp out of my motor

Same here. I say it'* okay, but as long as the car is up to temp and it'* kept to a minimum. I also would never go passed 60% of the RPM-range [3k for me]
