is this normal operation
i was on a backroad and i decided to open the car up alittle
i went for my normal 1 -2 shift and i fell out of lift,
thats ok because i have a 2002 gts, but on the 2-3 shift i stayed in lift ( i know this because i not only heard the continuous wale of vvtl-i but the tach went down to about 6300-6500, stayed there and continued to climb) i always thought it was impossible to land in lift on the 1-2 and 2-3 shift in an 02. i was just wondering if anyone else had ever done that
thanx for the replies thumbsup

I thought you fell outta lift during the 1-2 shift? That's the hardest shift to land in my opinion, due to the fact your car hasn't gotten up to speed yet.

i did, and i'll probably never land it on the 1-2 shift, but i thought 02 arent supposed to land lift until the 3-4 shift
i have tried before to land a 1-2 shift in lift ( that rhymed) but always fail
i have also tried to land the 2-3 shift but failed also( i did this while racing my friend in his rsx-s)
this is the first time i ever did it
could there be something wrong with my car confused

dont blame ur car man. you probably got better at shifting. i think its possible, cause a good driver on a 9 gts can shift on 2nd gear going 8300rpm to 3rd landing on 6300rpm around there. so you rev 300less, land 300 less. btw, when you raced the rsx-s, wut rpm did you land into while shifting 2-3. and wut rpms you go down to when you shift from 1-2? 5600rpm?

I've landed the 1-2 in lift on my 02 GTS, no kidding. You probably landed the 2-3 b/c you didn't let off the gas too much and did a quasi-powershift. Nothing's wrong with your car.


I get my kicks on EC.

well, when i raced the type s we started from a second gear roll. as soon as we both punched it ( we were both out of our i-vtec and vvtl-i) i started to pull and when i got to about 7800 i shifted and he took off. i think i dropped to about 6000 or a little less. this was when i just learned how to drive a manual. when i shift from 1-2 i usually land anywhere from 5500 to 5700 and from 2-3 it usually is around the 6000 range, 3-4 i land in lift all the time, and i NEVER race where i have to shift into 5th eek
btw thanx for the responses
