Default How often do you go WOT with your car?

How often do you go WOT with your car? Several times a day, once a day, once a week, never… Several times a week for me and my 2012 WRX.

I have a crossroad nearby that turns directly onto the highway where the speed limit is 65 mph and most people travel around 75 mph. So you can pull out and hammer on it until you get to 75 80 mph and then back off.

Every time I drive my car.

Always.

I promise.

I don't even let it warm up!













On a more serious note:

Maybe a few times per week. Not to often because it's not my daily.

The dealer told me that part of owning an STi is that it's either WOT or nothing so I stick to that.




Hahahahaha jk I hate goin through a tank of gas so fast though and that's what happens often when I open it up

Considering my current DD has 73 hp and I'm at 5300 ft, yeah, I go WOT multiple times a day.

But, in the US in a real car, I'd say, almost everyday.

I'd say on average my car gets driven about 3-4 times a month and I try to go WOT at least once on each of those drives for grins.

Maybe once a day perhaps in 2nd. Even then, I rarely rap out a gear nor use full WOT. I usually let off around 5500rpms because it's usually more than enough to satisfy me.
