well my rpms stay up anyway due to the heavy @$$ flywheel ford put on the focus but I do have a CF clutch. And my cams drop off at 5500rpm but the only way to make a good time was to rev the dog crap out of it 6500rpm no less. Oh I can see why you have a slipping clutch if you don't lift and just power shift. But I shift very fast and I let off and back on in s split second. I can bark the tires in going from 2nd to 3rd. The clutch and lower motor/tranny mount help in this department too.
