hmmm.. i think that would be when the BOOST kicks in!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's supercharged. Boost is instantaneous.KSE said:hmmm.. i think that would be when the BOOST kicks in!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe try not taking 1st to redline next time. Shift between 4 and 5k and you will see better performance overall.rivalm05 said:Has anyone else noticed the 'dead' spot in the 1-2 upshift? At WOT, the 1-2 shift drops the engine from redline right to the mid 3000s, and it just seems like the engine starts going backward.
After a second or two, once the tach passes 4K, it starts to pull again. This seems weird to me - has anyone else noticed this?

This is not something uncommon to this engine. There have been a few threads on the RedLine forums talking about this, and it seems that if you actually shift low in first, and it happens to be around ~2000 RPM's when you hit second gear, there is like a dead spot. It's kinda wierd that it's a little farther up the powerband for you guys. Anyone know if there realyl is any difference in gearing between the cars? Some have said yes, other say no. I would like to know if someone can find that. But yeah, our engines have that dead spot as well.silverss said:yea my 2nd gear feels sluggish at about 2-3k rpms then it kicks hard at 3 and keeps pullling
