the car is designed from the ground up to be run at high rpm's. its not gonna break if you use the whole rpm range. thats the whole point of having a redline that high. that makes the 6 -7 rpm range that most cars have as a redline prime hp range for that car. i doubt you would drop the clutch at rpms that high though, you would get nothign but wheelspin, to get 0 -60 times like the s2000 can you would prolly drop at aobut 3 - 4 and then gun it from theere shifting at about 8300 or so .. maybe even a lil higher. doing that WILL NOT break that car either .. thats what its made to do.
I have read in a car magazine(i have it but don't feel like searching through my large collection) of how they achieved those numbers in the S200 and even they said they would recommend the method they used. And if you do drop the clucth at 3 or 4 rpm you woundn't get the time in the six second range.
