Tips: Landing on Lift

its time for the people who are suffering to land on lift from 1-2 think twice what they're doing wrong. i couldn't land on lift for the first month i had the car, actually 1.5 months. wut sux about my car is that its a 2002, so first i shifted at 7500rpm and landed on 5500rpm maximum. now i changed the ECU and the knock sensor to 2001 and the rev limiter is at 8100rpm. the reason why its lower than its suppose to be is because of aftermarket 17" chrome rims (i know it sux, im changing them soon).
when you think of the celica landing on lift, you think its a hard procedure cause its hard to learn the shifter and be quick at it. thats what everyone tells u. i realized that it comes to a point that when you shift quicker than the speed you are shifting at, ull either grind, shifter wont go in second, get stuck or something like that happens.
i came to a conclusion that landing in lift doesnt completely have to do with shifting quick but it also has to do the way you letting go the clutch and accelerating. next time you shift concentrate on how you slipping off the clutch and gasing the car. ull know when you did wrong if you feel the car stopping and pushing all of a sudden in a bad way. basically if you do it the wrong way you will feel ur engine mounts shaking like GOOOM. DONT do that, try to avoid that cz ull lose power like that and ull break the mounts eventually.
reason i posted this is because nothing, absolutely nothing. just in case if people are suffering landing in lift from 1 to 2, dont go harsh on ur tranny, try to go over of how you "gunning" the car. this will help. ull know when you land on lift, ur tires will chirp a bit like they dont have a grip of the road for a second, the rpms drop, move around, and then start to climb. the moving around of the rpm should be around 6000rpm if you land on lift or a little above that.

if any of you got tips, post em here.

Minnesota....Yaa!!!
A super short short shifter would help tremendously. And being quick with the clutch and gas pedal.

ummmm i have a stock clutch and flywheel and what I do is that right before the fuel cut off hits, I shift really fast and give it full throttle, this way when i land lift in 1-2 shift I see the rpm needed jump around at 67000 for a split second and it continues through lift until i shift to third.

i never really thought landing lift was a hard thing..other people too which is why when people say landing lift is hard, it's weird. The celica was my first manual car and i got it last month but i never had a problem landing lift. People told me what "landing lift" was and how to do it and after i found out, i tried it and it worked easily. Just rev all the way up to 8350/8400 and then shift and you should be in lift. That's what i do. Sometimes i shift slow so i bounce of the limiter for a second but yeah.. better to bounce off and land lift. grin

i've noticed tires do make a difference also. before with my stock rims and tires nearing baldness, chirping is near impossible shifting 1-2 and never with 2-3.

not having anymore tread i threw on my old rims with halfway decent tread and that first day i suprised myself with how easy it was to hit "chirps" from 1-2 then 2-3.

so tire tread is somewhat important, i think...
