WOW... I was tachin' it up and letting it unwind far FAR higher than 4000 rpm, and she was happy as could be..... I've always been one to drive it during break in how your going to drive it. But there should be a variation in speed/rpm for the first few hundred miles.. Broke in everything I own the same way including two boats and my Harley, and they're all content!

Thanks guys! I just got the avalanche all cleaned up for the trade-in. Leaving @5:30 am. Funny thing...all ive heard negitive about the camaro are the blind spots...If you trade in an avalanche i think you gain alittle visablity. Its been a great truck/suv but my first love has always been sports cars. Again thank you all for your input...Probley will take some back roads coming home. Oh and BTW im going from a victory red 07 ltz avalanche to a victory red 2ss/rs camaro!

Actually I think that the RoadWrap product is a good idea. Not for short hauls, but for those long hauls - especially at night. First thing I do after driving to our vacation destination is head to a car wash.
