Is it true that durring break-in you shouldn't use 6th gear?

SkipV, the owner's manual does not say anything about avoiding sixth gear. it just recommends 106 mph as the top speed for the first 1,200 miles. one is also told to refrain from full throttle and not go above 5,500 rpms during this time. in my experience, that leaves plenty of room for fun, but also serves as a potent appetizer for more aggressive driving soon.
regards,
michael

A club member told me this. I didn't see anything in the book about it. Thanks for clearing this up.
