Hi guys,

when pushing it, how do you upshift? Is it OK to:

1) Full throttle
2) Jab clutch, change gears
3) Apply full throttle?

Or do you have to give it gas as you're releasing the clutch? I sometimes have problems when I shift at 6.5krpm, I give some gas, and I hear the engine rev up, and then the clutch engages... so can I give less gas?

Also, does the CDV have any effect on this high-rev high-speed upshifting? The effect seems greatly increased for me at high speeds, dunno if I am relating it to the right thing or not.

Thanks.
