1200 is still a pretty new stage for you to be driving it that hard... I waited at least until 1500 until I actually had to try it out for real...
and yes.. over time you will notice some changes on your motor (bad ones) but you gotta remember this is still a toyota engine and it will last forever if you maintain it good with good oil changes and so on
The ONLY way 3 people can keep a secret is if 2 of them die.
you can drive you car hard for as long as you want, but if you dont use the right fluids for the car then yes the car will start to lose power etc...remember if you drive hard all the time, use sythtic oil, better tranny fluid. Try getting better brakes, clutch etc. because all those thing will help prolong you cars power, and engine life
