2.0 JTDM 159

Traffic Light Grand Prix

Got myself a 2.0 JTDm 159 last week, having driven petrol all my life.

Where should the gear changes be when I'm wanting to put maximum distance between me and the traffic lights.

Tips/tricks welcome, got beat a focus ST and can't help feel I wasn't getting the most from my beauty.

Peak power is 168bhp at 4,000rpm so change up just after then. Your acceleration is proportional to your power:weight ratio so maximising power is the way to go seen as there's not a lot you can do about the weight.
