If I am
shifting to 2nd, then I try to shift between 7,000-7,200.
It's all trial and error on the course.
Usually the first run is a "feeler", and I short shift to 2nd just to stay smoother.
Doing that will help me determine when and where I may gain time by staying in 1st or downshifting to 1st.
By the third run, I've usually got my shift points (or lack thereof) figured out.

here and there.
Yeah...not quite AutoCross speeds, but I'm not
going to complain.
