If he could keep his hands off the paddles and quit short shifting it, the RE would have whooped their ass even more.

As you know I have posted the same all over the place. I just don’t know what makes them all just think they are so much smarter than the machine. Do they think it can’t shift on its own? I have had mine to the floor on those road tracks as long as about anyone, and these things have a perfect mind of their own at WOT in the upper gears. It is consistent and they like drinking that gas all the way into that red area. To short it by a few hundred RPM is cutting the RE off at about just HC power or less. Plus after the shift, the car is at a bit lower RPM than optimal. Those guys still do well because the torque curve is so great even at low RPM. Face it, MT did that big drag race, from 1/4 to 1/2 mile only the Aston and the McLaren bettered it between those markers. I hope you guys can get a clean spot to have fun.
