so i got tired of breaking the engine in slowly and did it tonight lol :D

i was driving home from the bay area and soon as i was past sacramento i was doing 120-140 with a few patches of heavy fog that last like 30s (it's like a bog or something really weird).

that was one exhilarating ride.

there were no cars around for 20 miles at a time fyi so dont think i was swerving like a maniac or something :p

driving in the bay area was kind of neat. driving up and down the really hilly parts and all. but my car wasnt happy with me when i was parking on a downhill. i had to parallel park in this tight spot (on a downhill..) and i havent had my car for much longer than a week so im still gettin used to the exact timing of the release point of the clutch.. that was one pain.

i was revving the engine up quickly as a safety precaution but i was doing like 4500 rpm before clutch grabbed because i was scared of rolling into the car in front of me :( my car stank when i finished, but at least by the end i got it perfectly though.. i'm almost getting to the point where i can consistently do it below 1500rpm

but that was fun.. just sharing my experience :D
