Carrying speed out of the carousel is so important.

Give it time and practice and you will definately need 5th!!!!
To be honest I thought that 215 was fast as well.
Up until the last two sessions was as around the 204-208 mark and Greg really helped my carry a little more speed through carousel and I believe I hit 211, 213 and 215 on three consecutive laps. Not sure how accurate my speedo is but was more concerned about should I shift or hold.
Next time definitely going to try and get into third.

Are you down shifting into second?
Greg kept me in third and fourth.

Over the weekend I will look were the redline points are for my car.
I am very interested in doing some roll on comparisons as well if anyone if game with a stock 6MT.
