Last night I was out till 2am and no one was on this long stretch of hwy road, so I stopped and tried to see if I could land lift 1-2 on my bone stock '04 GTS. Well, no problem at all. I revved to 8100rpm (just before fuel cut, as mine seems to hit it at 8200rpm) and shifted as quickly as I can from 1st to 2nd, landed 6300rpm and stayed in lift all gears. It was awesome.
I tried it a few times, never missed lift 1-2. So for those who can't do it, your not shifting fast enough.
I also then decided to go all the way and see how hard it would pull in each gear, so I got it up to 220km in 5th gear about about 7000rpm and shutdown after that. Car kept pulling too. Its an amazing hwy car, the power never seems to end. What's the top speed on our cars?
Now I gotta pratice launching, at what RPM should I be dropping the clutch at to get the best times?
