Carrying speed out of the carousel is so important.

Give it time and practice and you will definately need 5th!!!!
I did a little driving research last night.
2nd gear 102km @ 8000rpms
3rd gear 157km @ 8000rmps
4th gear 204km @ very close to 8000rmps got it upto 212 in fourth before I had to hit the brakes.

Wish I had done this exercise when my car was stock.
Curious if anyone would this and we could all see the difference.

Just realized that I did not use the M option on the track on Wednesday.
So excited to get out their, didn't even think to hit the M button.
