I would want to see a bet defined in the following terms.

Shift time = total time from when acceleration starts to drop during the gear change to when acceleration is back at or above the steady state for the next gear.

Put in terms of the real world graph:

The time counted would be from just a hair before the 1.2s mark where acceleration starts to dip until 1.6s where acceleration has returned to the expected value for the next gear. So I would measure that at about 0.42s

You guys pick an over/under number for that metric.
