Well, when I first get my Camaro 1SS,...the first day, I'm gonna PUSH THAT ****h. The method I use is what usually gets me the most results. In the beginning when you first get a car, I think it's important that you quickly condition it for future use. And how do I do that? Run the hell out of it. I'm in New Orleans, so cops pop up here and there, but oddly enough, I've never been given a speeding ticket in all my years of driving; and ignorant as it sounds, I speed EVERYDAY, I'm never doing 70.

When I first get the car, Im going to cruise out very far as my warm up like around 12 or 1 at night,(empty roads here), after that I'm gonna push it to the max all the way home. Cops here typically race older model camaros, and 9 times out of 10, they always lose with the camaro driver getting away. I mean going 140+Mph late at night with no one on the road, even if I see a cop up ahead sitting on the side of the road, going that fast,....I'd be foolish to stop anyway. Either way, I slow down going 140mph, he's gonna stop me and ticket or worst......arrest, lol. I think if I was going 140+mph, and a cop was sitting on the side of the road with his car off, ....as most do here until someone passes,...going that fast passing them, they wouldn't have enough time to catch me. I've even outran them going 110mph in my 4runner only because I had a head-start and they were sitting on the side of the road with they're car off.

Don't worry once I get my car, I'll keep everyone posted on the results after working it out.

I just have to ask the question, b/c I want to know what you know..........Why is it a waste of my money to change my oil before 5K?

Not much I wanna say about this post, but I do have 3 things I'd like to say.

#1 How young are you?

#2 You're days are numbered (w/o speeding tickets)

#3 You are an idiot!

I wouldn't go so far as saying it's "pointless". Many owners have reported metal deposits in the oil after 1500 miles. Break in period recomends 1500 miles. Some people break their car's in by driving the hell out of them while others baby them. There are arguments for both. And of course you could go longer but if you are driving the hell out of it early then you should change your oil sooner. If you are going to the track (other than drag racing) you should have your rear diff fluid changed as well.

Total will set you back $190 from the dealer.

I just like being safe I have changed my oil 3 times so far and I only have 7000 miles on the car but I drive it a little hard and just want to be sure that my $34,000 car is well taken care of.
