I've heard anecdotal stories about people who drive their car hard and never have problems, then sell it to people who drive conservatively and suddenly have problems sprout up. Something about racecar...

Hitting the redline in every gear up to highway speed is good once in a while, if just for cardio and a shot of adrenaline!
