Question
Would you let someone get in your car, start it up, then immediatley push the gas pedal to the floor and hold it at full throttle for about 2 minutes ??

Answer
Well, unless you are an idiot, of course you wouldn't.   So why do drivers (mechanics too) get in a bus and do that ??   Do you honestly think it is ok to rev a cold engine up 2100 RPM's with no oil pressure ??   Even when they have oil pressure it is still a bad idea.  This causes major component damage overtime and shortens engine life drastically.  I would venture to say that this practice causes most of our engine oil leaks.
