How bad is it drive aggressively on a cold engine?
A lot of times I'm late on my way to school and I drive a bit aggressively. I usually don't go over 3.5k rpms for the first couple minutes but after about 5 mins I start push it to around 5k rpms. Am I causing damage to my engine, and if so how bad? The temperature needle has barely started to move at around that time. Thanks in advance.

Modern engines are not completely immune to wear when cold, but advances in technology have made it much better.
I do know engines see more wear when cold and if you push them hard they wear faster.
