I do this once in a while. I think it keeps everything healthy in my drivetrain. Anybody else? (The pic is a few weeks old - it was taken and I forgot to post. Oh and by the way, closed course, professional driver, etc)

I do the same. Seems to help clean the sensors.

I hit redline a few times a tank, about every 10,000 miles I will do 30 miles of hilly interstate and leave the transmission M5. My 1.4T seems to be prone to carboning up, probably from spending 98% of its life at less than 2000RPM. Sounds great after 30 minutes above 3000RPM.

I should add I topped off my tank and drove 100 miles in M5 once, still managed within 1MPG of my normal average when I topped off again!!!

Just tried it and made the tires come loose in 2nd gear backed off and went again but a little slower on the throttle. Made sure I cooled the engine down after.

I don't own a diesel at the present time ... but I did own a 1981 Pontiac Grand Prix with 5.7L diesel, non-turbo, and I used to floor that thing on a regular basis to "roll smoke" for people behind me that were tailgating! As for nowadays ... I frequently blow the cobwebs out of every vehicle I drive. (in an approved environment of course)

The power definitely rolls off after about 4500ish

thats prolly why in auto mode it shifts at around 4500. Kinda hard to keep it wide open in auto mode because I get going to fast pretty quickly
