|swansong||I saw something useful on standardshift.com, when I was learning stick. It said shifts have have 3 qualities: fast, smooth, and low clutch wear. But you can only pick two. So you can give it a lot of gas and slip the clutch to get a fast and smooth shift, but the clutch won't be happy. Or you can drive it easy and rev match the shift so it is smooth and clutch is happy, but you'll have to wait for the revs to fall appropriately. Or just shift as fast as possible and bang through every gear all herky jerky.|

|ripto||Oh yeah I know it is, I'm trying to figure it out. I'm still trying to understand how people can accel so fast, with bearly any time off the gas. Experience I'm sure.|

|Sonic_HedgeHog||ripto, I think that's more in your execution than anything...|

|ripto||When you guys accelerate hard, do any of you still get jerkings after any gear change, especially 1-2? I'm still trying to find the sweet spot to release the clutch and go.|

I drive a 1.6 common-rail diesel.
So at normal local traffic its around 2-2.5K.
When I want to accelerate really fast I push it to 3-3.5K.
At that point you reach your max torque.
It makes plenty people surprise it can accelerate pretty fast, for being only a 1.6.
I love my 6speed manual btw.

I generally shift around 2200-3200. And when I'm getting on it, either around 4000-redline.
