Why does every owners manual usually state revs below 3k etc? Totally agree with what you sent though.
It's likely to make sure owners don't barrel into others in an unfamiliar car? You can redline a modern car from cold and for the warranty period nothing is ever going to fail. They are tested really to severe limits and manufacturers IMO only care about the time they have to support the car foc.
