Question - Shifting from 1st to 2nd Gear.

Question for everyone. I have a 2002 Celica GTS 6 Speed. I want to know at what RPM everyone is shifting, from 1st to 2nd gear. I think, manual says 2800 RPM. I've been shifting in the 3000-3500 RPM's.

It all depends on how fast you are intending to get up to speed. Just shift when you feel like it. You shouldn't even be looking at the tach unless you are nearing redline, just listen to the motor & make your shift. thumbsup

Theres not a set rpm that you should shift at. It depends how fast you want to accelerate. Anywhere between 2000 and the redline will do fine!

Stupid question BTW

i think you should shut up and keep making up ur fake lil stories, dont come her and start to say shit about this question, on a better note, just shift wen you need 2 like if you wanna drive slow then shift at the rpm the manual said but if you wanna go faster then rev harder its totally up to u

i normally shift between 3-4 i noticed. I like around 4 because it is in between economy driving and spirited driving...but shifting above 6 is also fun thumbsup
