Heck, its flying by 2000 = 52mph in top. Under 1000 is getting a bit cruel.

Lots of traffic islands followed by long straights so 2,3,4,5 then 6 every time. Would not skip 5 and lose momentum!

Re: You V6 drivers with the 6 speed boxes...

i use 5th very often, at motorway speeds 4th and 5th are needed for acceleration, 6th just isnt useful for power until 85ish, its just a motorway cruising gear, as soon as i want any extra speed on a motorway i will change down to 4th or 5th

around town 1st and 2nd, maybe 3rd if you are going to hold 30mph for any length of time
