Honestly. I dont see a need to redline this car. The majority of the powerband is from 2k - 5k rpm....

Yeah not often unless I miss-shift. You want to shift sooner than redline...

If you mean go WOT since I have a step, I think everytime I accelerate. I rarely just ease in the gas.

Never.
The highest I'll go is 6500.
Anything higher is lost hp.

I very rarely redline this car... my s2000 was a much different story though. No torque FTL!

Red lined my g35 perhaps 1ce a week... this e90... red line once a year.

way too much power for stop and go traffic and short runs.

That's completely wrong, shifts are determined by torque through gearing, not by where HP peaks on a dyno, I'll post up an excel sheet in a few minutes.






You need to shift where the gear your in intersects with the next gear.

Then do tell us.
What is the ultimate rpm to shift into each gear based on your graphs?
I understand what you're saying about the hp on a dyno when compared to gearing on a street, but I still consider it to be a waste when taking it all the way to the redline.

What program is that so I can see the ultime shifting point in each gear?

You can consider it a waste if you like, that's your prerogative.

Input a dyno into an excel sheet then use the equation part to change the values based on gearing and another column to change the RPM into MPH. Then graph it MPH vs torque. But about 6700 6500 3/4 4/5.

So redline in first and second, then 6700 from third to fourth?
