So overall not to sweat it, just use the PS2s for now and pressure at 40, is that it. Here is one other question, to those of you who have DCT what gear do you use, I know at M school I pretty much got up to 3rd and that was it and that was at 100 top speed since it was a short track; this may be an incredibly stupid question so I apologize in advance, I know the power is at the high end so any suggestions appreciated.
