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.

I shift into 2nd in the work zone before 11/12 it is a tough downshift in our cars since the workzone is so short. By the apex point of 11 I am in the throttle and keep adding throttle until I am full throttle at the apex of 12 which gives me a bit more acceleration on to the straight but you have to make sure the car is pretty ballanced or the back end of the car will pull to the outside wall. But good for a couple KPH. Based on my RPM I am hitting 225ish at the end of the straight.
