so if i know when to shift (by feeling it) would it give me any noticeable gains in speed?
Bingo. Yup yup shift it yourself. The vid I posted is me dropping gears at 7200 rpm, all smooth and all on the climb A little feathering of the peddle once in the band will crush her. However leaving it in D with O/D off will win also just not by as much.
And NEVER underestimate a FEM racer because she is FEM.
Fem's have faster and more consistent RT's than male, and usually weigh less. They also feel they have something to PROVE. I have raced plenty o chicks and been beat by a few. Good example is my wife. Super charged nissan xterra w/NOS. The Mommy-mobile rips its share of people every weekend at the track, and she consistently gets faster times than me in my car as well. Good thing we can't talk about the crying 18 yr olds she leaves at the light....lol......
