Default Thanks Dad...

Hey everyone! So I wasn't sure whether or not to post this in the 2.5l section or not but ended up going with this section so I apologize if i'm in the wrong section. So today I went to my Dad's house and I was going to pull his car out of the garage (he doesn't drive it) and move mine in and he asked if he could move my car since it is easier for him to get in and out of it rather than his corvette and the face that he wanted to drive my car a little since it is still new. So I agreed and told him to let my engine warm up for a minute or so and he said ok but the second I got in his car, he started moving mine and I could already tell he was over revving it just to get it out of the dip in his steep driveway but didn't mind much. I then open the door to listen and hear him go WOT down the street in 1st and 2nd.... I know that this isn't good for an engine, especially a new one not the mention the clutch burning when he brought it up the driveway. I don't think there will be any issues but should I watch for anything? I mean the engine was pretty cold and I want to get opinions to see if people have had any experience with driving a car hard when it's cold. A dumb question but it's a new car and i'm still super anal
