Are you talking manual? Has not affect what so ever on a manual transmission. The only warning was to not boost in overdrive on the auto tranny.

Go figure out the numbers - on the track I ran up to 87mph in third, 102 in 4th, and was pushing 5th trying to get to redline when my clutch started slipping. Pretty much means I was boosting in every gear.
