so whaty exactly is the point of changing gear at 7400, when all you'll do is drop down to 6500, where what happens?

oh yeah PEAK power and where it dies off Laugh my ass off


I wasnt saying i would hit the limiter, if going for it i would be around 7000 when i shift up a gear Yes I guess its down to personal preference and quickness of changing gear, for me it feels good doing it around that mark Smile

I always thought an engine is working (pulling) best when it is in the sweet spot which lies between peak torque and peak power.

With PT81s I think my peak torque is up at about 5600rpm and peak power about 7200-7300, I cant remember exactly. I generally change just as I'm passing the 7000rpm mark though with a lightened flywheel you can get caught out in 1st as it seems the rev counter cant keep up.

Mechanical sympathy is what has me changing gears around that point.
