Re: Powershifting

Before I could pass judgement, I would need to know exactly what powershifting is?

Yes, it's hard on the tranny and it is effective to transfer the momentum quickly.

I do it when i race my car at the track, shift as fast as i can, powershifting like no tomorrow y00! Other than that, doing it everyday will wear out your clutch faster. And dont talk about missing a gear; shifting like that lol :684::684:

Re: Powershifting

Yea power shifting is pretty rough on your car. Do it only when at the track or racing someone that you dont want to loose to haha.

Clutchless shifting is fun, anyone here do that? thats pretty much how i drive every day, i only use the clutch for 1st gear and just dry shift the rest.

Re: Powershifting

Yes its hard but if done right as in having a light wight flywheel, good clutch, hondata with no lift **** setting set. That is the safest way. I know it eats shift cables buy stretching them witch cost about 380 bucks each time you do that.

Re: Powershifting

I use to rev match instead of powershifting. The power shifting I'm referring to is when you don't let off the gas and stump the clutch at the right time to shift. I'm afraid of that method and I wouldn't recomend it. I like rev matching but even that puts a strain on the tranny and you can feel it.

Re: Powershifting

rev matching is only when you decelerate. and to power shift you dont always have to hold down the gas. technically power shifting could be concidered shifting like normal only you do it as fast as you can.

Re: Powershifting

I missed 3rd gear one time and saw my old ricer tach coming down from above 9K rpms. I didn't rev it above 3.5k the rest of the way home.

Skuk2 chip, thats right no "n" from ebay with an obscene revlimiter that is apparently above 9k. That chip went into the trash
Got a basemap chip from a buddy that tuned someone elses prelude and its fine now. 7900 rev limit, 3400 rpm 2-step when the VSS isn't acting up

Re: Powershifting

Re: Powershifting

when I race my foot usually stomps the clutch pedal to the floor as i'm pulling it out of gear so the clutch is disengaged by the time it goes into the next gear.
I think i shift kinda fast, but as long as you don't lose momentum when you shift it shouldn't be a problem.



and REMEMBER....spinnin aint winnin

Re: Powershifting

Are you talking about flat shifting? I do some of that with my STI. Usually running a map that you can set rev limiters and such. Keeping gas to the floor while you change gears...
