haha^ where does the car make most hp aka Example. 140@ 5000 rpm or so, go out and see what rpm you shift at to make it fall closest to that rpm

at least thats what makes sense to me

I usually shifted right before red line!! thumbsup Worked for me anyways!! It gives you more for the next gear instead of the next gear working it's way up slower... does that make any sense? confused
