Something has to be wrong? It just doesn't seem to really pull right away in second, could I be banging the clutch to much and let it slip more? I am confused. Help!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone seems to have their own idea of the best shift points. Me included. My personal experience is to shift right at 7000 rpms for the best times. I tried shifting at 6500 rpms and lost .2-.3 tenths in the 1/4 mile. My car runs best at 7000 rpm shifts.
I ran 13.3 @ 101 with Turboxs stage 2 set up shifting at redline in all gears. Thats with 17'' prodrives 21.5 lbs wheels.
