Oh man can't wait to see the following posts. Should be quite the range of answers...
I usually also do the trickle charger and try not to start it much. But every now n then if the weather is nice with no salt I'll take it out for a rip. I dont bother with over inflating. I just drive the flat spots out in the hopes of destroying the shit stock tires lol. Once the tires heat up - about a mile - theyre all good.Agreed,what is your opinion?
So what's the secret to getting the oil up to temp without driving?? Heck, I can barely get it warmed up a lot of times when driving, without going up a somewhat steep and long grade.Its ok to start, but if you do let it run until it reaches operating temperature.
You can powerbrake a little, now not crazy, I'm talking 800-900 rpm and that won't hurt a thing, even moving it in the garage back and forth will help get it warmed up. Probably will take a good 20-25 minutes to get the oil up to temp, oil temp now, don't look at the coolant temp.So what's the secret to getting the oil up to temp without driving??

Unless by "operating temperature" you mean the relatively meaningless coolant temp.
