Manual Gto....

Ok I haven't been driving a Manual for a long time... I was just thinking if you wanted to power shift, while racing would you let off the gas pedal when you shift or just hold it down.... Does anybody know... I don't wanna try it before I get the ok from you guys......

Experiment with a much cheaper car first.

I let up on the gas when I shift, even when at the strip. But then again, I don`t wanna tare up any equipment. If you don`t care if you tare it up.......leave her on the floor.

When you powershift you leave your foot barried to the floor, you have to be quick about it too. I don't think its does any good with a stock shifter and clutch. I don't do it, because I've done it when I was young on junk cars and you will start smelling clutch .
