hey i was just wondering if it's ok to be driving at 3 grand for a long distance. i don't really like only driving 60 mph but i don't want to mess my car up by running 65-70 mph and the tach being 2500-3000 rpms. do you think that's ok for it to run 70?

3k rpm is fine. thats about middle of the band.

why cant you upshift into 5th?

65-70 mph you run around 3 or a little over 3,000 rpms in 5th. or at least I do
