Learning lol

Ok, I did my first set of runs. I walked on who I raced but I got a lot of comments on my shifts.

M6 2010 V8......

What RPMS would be your shift points in drags? I was starting my shifts around 65k-7k on each gear. Most comments were for how long I was in 1st gear.

Flame on lol .

You will really need a dyno shift to tell you EXACTLY where to shift, but if you get a general dyno sheet from a similar car, then that will work.

I have always been told to shift right before your peak, because by the time you actually shift you will be right at it and that is where you need to be each shift.

Never shift into either of the ODs on the track if avoidable and it should be.

Oh and btw it is 6.5-7k or 6500-7000 rpms.

2005 CTSV BLACK LS7 Clutch/Flywheel/Slave, Tick Speed Bleeder, Tilton Clutch MC, RevShift Bushings, Domestic V8 Solutions (shifter, 8.8 Diff conversion, srut tower braces, sub-frame connectors), SLP cats, no cags, xpipe, bullet mufflers, Volante, iPod dock, G-force tune; 379hp 381tq.

Killing 5th gens like it is my job.

On the last Dino I had done peak on HP and TK meet at 5500. My Camaro has CAI, Headers and under drive pulley. Peak HP at 416. On a run down the track I am just going into 4th gear at the end of the quarter.

IMO- 6500-7000 is way too high to be shifting. Yes the motor will take it, but if your engine is completely stock, you're not gaining anything at all. If anything, you're losing time by waiting to shift that long. As 54" stated, you want to shift right before your peak HP and his explanation was dead on.

If your launching and the car doesn't want to hook up, try short shifting out of first. If the tires are spinning and your building RPM's extremely fast, short shifting will allow the car to grab the traction that you need.

In all honesty, people can give you all the opinions in the world, but this is something that takes practice. You're just going to have to learn your shifts by going off of your time sheets and looking at your 60' time.

Most times I would not hit fourth gear.

I am running CAI, LTH and a personal tune.

Pretty much I agree, trial and error. Just wanted to make sure I had the basics down.
