Question SVTF Shift Point

I was wondering where everyone shifted while they were at the track. I'm trying to find the perfect shift point. I usually shift at about 6500. let me know what you guys shift at.

Which track?
Drag race, or road racing/autocross?

BTW, moving to ”Racing, Rally & Autocross”...

I'm sure he means drag. I have a non-svt, so I cannot help here.

I shift when I can feel the power peak. Around 6500-6800, after that it seems to drop out from under me.

I go all the way to 7300 rpm, if you take a look at the jrsc graphs from dyno runs without a jrsc, you will see that past redline the car picks up about 5 hp, and it will put you closer to max power in the next gear
