The 10th in pax was on a course that I never left first gear. The only other car that ran it all in first was a SVT Contour. I will down shift when possible. Need to be careful because shifting costs time. The courses that kill me are the ones with corners to fast for a down shift then into a straight. As WD40 said, wheel spin is a factor in first. And answering questions here is fine with me also. That way if I say something not quite right I can be called on it, still consider myself learning with front drive.
