Tearing up Auto Transmission

Hey. I have a 1995 toyota corolla with automatic transmission. I often put the standard gears into L, 2, then drive just to get higher RPMS and go faster and have more fun. I was just wondering though, does this in any way tear up the car? I've heard a lot of different things.

ya it can cause ur car alot of problems, first of all it gets hotter, the pistons move faster which causes more wear, especially since its hot, u have to get an oil change more often bcuz the oil gets dirty faster, and a whole bunch of other little problems can happen from all the movement and shaken that the engine does when revved up real high. have you ever thought to wonder why race car engines only last a 1 or 2 races? even though they only run like 400 miles, they have have alot more wear bcuz the revs are so high constantly...

PS: it also takes up alot more gas which obviously gives you worse gas mileage.

Racing a honda is like being in the special olympics, even if you win you're still retarted.
