I drive mine to 6000-6200rpm when driving hard.....gives me a little margin for error.
At the track I have taken it to 6500-6600rpm in a fit of anger trying to pass someone.
She is supposed to rated to 7000rpm redline.
Most of the time tooling around, shift it at 3500rpm is fine, no need to get aggressive unless you really need the punch. Don't wanna lug it ever.....this is where detonation and other stresses on the mechanicals is likely.
Gotta remind yourself why you bought this car every now and then so wind her up!
