those figures are very interesting... i guess those revs to change gear at (since they are the optimum) would be when it gears in DS mode?
actually, i have a question about that...
if you are in manual mode, but DONT change gears does it operate exactly like the DS mode or does it push it even further?
as far as i can see it is the same if not similar, so what on earth is the point? your not exactly going to change up earlier than the optimum in manual mode, at which point it does it for you anyway.... so why?
i wish manual was proper manual (i.e. it does NO gearing for you, it just messes things up)...
could the class please open your Feats of Engineering textbooks to page 335, section D.
