No its not ok to red line your engine. First of all your engine does not have V-tec so there is no reason to red line your engine to keep v-tec on. You should only rev your engine up to its max hp which is at 5,200 rpm. DON'T REV ANY HIGHER ALL IT DOES IS HARM YOUR ENGINE!!! Also I found out it is slower to shift the car yourself starting off from D1 all the way to D4. Just stick the car into D3 to get a fast take off then stick it back into D4 for final drive. You can run third gear "D3" on the auto all the way up to 100 mph then drop it back into D4 to get back your final gear or overdrive. Also shifting your self ruins the tranny.
