Of course I'm not going to rev it hard, just keeping it at 2000-3000RPM, until it warms up. Just wondering if it's bad for the engine to drive the car when it's still cold?
Give it 30 seconds for the idle to to drop, then drive off. The point is to warm up everything together. Diff, tires and fluids.
