I think i only hit the 2nd gear limiter once when i was racing my SVT, and that was at an airport with tons of space. My rule in the Miata when it comes to up-shifting is if the rev limiter bounces more than 4 times in a particular area that will be my up shift point.


That sounds like what I would probably do
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
