^^ Very interesting.
I drive my car in a mix group of ways from everyone's comments.
I would daily it to work so often in granny mode.
Then when I am late for something or just wanting to get a good breeze with the windows down, I go for it.
And of course when I go to the AutoX courses, I push 1st and 2nd through the cones.
Overall, since I have bought the car. It has felt great from day 1. I will say, that since I bought it new in 03, the car doesn't pull as hard as it use too, but it's also a lot more smoother in the power band. Could all be in the tuning.
The SVT is just one hell of a zippie car. And always fun to drive. Even my mechanics say that each time they align my car and take it for a spin.

look what i found!
flipping through my svt specific booklet i found this!! and i have been sticking to it! so far the car runs/ shifts smooth because the rpms are right where they are supposed to be. and mpg's seem to be up! lets see how many i get out of this tank! you shift at every half mark

|ChrisRobin||It's my DD and all city driving... so my mileage is complete garbage. I don't know the actual 'mileage' per se, but if I do some highway I'll hit 350km's or slight more per tank. If it's all city, then 300km's if I'm lucky.|

I've never gotten above 27 mpg. At this point I chalk it up to California gas.
I often skip 1-2-4-6, something like that.
Maybe once a week I will wring it out to 7k, but after it is definitely warmed up.

when im lazy i'll skip shift. 1-2-4-6. 1 to 3 is too big a gap so i dont bother with that, but sometimes i might 1-2-3-5.
this car feels the best to me on the hwy, or anywhere mid to high speed. ripping up an on ramp going through 2-3-4 is the best, and the intake growls nicely.
