Would bouncing the RPMs off the rev limit in first gear be detrimental to the engine? (1994 Civic 1.5l non-vtec)

for how long were you hitting the revv limiter?
does it idle smooth after you did that? if its idles nice and you dont hear any kind of noises then its fine.

Bouncing off the rev limiter for short periods of time once in a while isn't too bad. I just wouldn't make a habit out of it.
