That's a great question, honestly I wasn't really punching it off the starting line, because I didn't want to spin I was in automatic before this run, and it was **** slow maybe 13.3, so I switched it to manual also this was without my CBE and for some reason I can't run the 12.2 again,But this was back in April when we had a great boost weather since then, its been really hot and the DA is just crazy where do you think I should be shifting at I think i was at 6500 maybe?

I need info on shift point too, going to the track Friday. I planned to brake boost at launch in Auto, then once the car switched to 2nd I was going to change to manual and shift myself

I've used some shift calculators online given a typical dyno graph and your best bet is to shift as close to redline as possible even with the drop in torque due to mechanical multiplication of the higher gear ratios.

You running at baytown track?

Many folks do auto on launch then shift to manual from 2nd gear onwards.

In case you want to see a sample video, check out nostrum (sam barrios) video in YT. Search for “q50 demolishes ferrari”
