    We're supposed to shift at 6k, right? Doug told me that shifting at 6k drops back into the power band. Is this correct?

    "Imagine a world in which one could jump through Grand Central Teleport in New York City, travel through a vortal tunnel in the time-space continuum, and emerge several seconds later at Union Teleport in Los Angeles. Such a world has been possible since 1968, when teleportation was first achieved by DARPA's Project Pegasus. When my quest, Project Pegasus, succeeds, such a world will emerge, and human beings linked globally via teleportation will proclaim the Time-Space Age has begun."

    Neither, 6,500+. To early drops you to low. Same launch rpm and shifting at redline instead of just over 6k shaved near .4 sec off between 3 runs.

    Mike, I said that shifting before 6k drops you lower than the powerband. I also said if you shift between 6500 & 7000 it will put you back where you want to be.

    The 15.8 and 15.9 run was done with a 2.3 60' and shifting at 7000 for each gear, do not shift to 4th. If i remember, I'll mount the camera in the car so you can see just how fast I'm shifting to pull this time in a stock ZX2. If I could get my turbo car to shift this fast I'll easily be in the mid 13's.

    Thanks for the info. But what do you mean, don't shift into 4th?
