Default 1/4 mile- when to shift into 4th?

At the track this past weekend, with 98MPH trap speeds i would always require a shift into 4th before the end of the 1/4 mile. I was shifting at like 7,200 RPM, but is that a good idea? do you think it would hurt my time shifting right before the end? maybe i should shift at 6,500 so i could pick up more speed?

I did try once to keep it floored, but i hit the rev limiter about half a second before the end.

Dude, I tried shifting into 4th earlier and I got the same trap speed. 98mph. If we had the 2.5 RS differentials, we would be able to use 4th gear well in the 1/4 mile.

you dont want to shift into 4th until you have to.
its overdriven and will slow you down.
take 3rd gear as high as you can.
