    How is everyone Up shifting while racing? My best runs come when I powershift (not letting up from gas) from 1st to 2nd, then from there I just shift (normal) as quickly as possible through the other gears. Anyone have any opinions on if powershifting just gernades trannies or what? or is it really up to what feels good to you or not?

    Maybe I should start double clutching :lol:

    dude power shifting can harm an engine two if you have no rev limiter or a raised red line but power shift all the way up trough all gears if you really want
