Preferred Shift Points - VS 1100
So, the manual suggests shifting to 2nd at 20 KmH, 3rd at 30KmH, etc.
That translates to shifts at 12, 19, 25 and 31 MPH for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively.
These seem awfully low to me. What seems better to me is to use the Kilometers shift points as the MPH shifts. 2nd at 20, 3rd at 30, etc.
Anyone care to comment? Until I get my tach installed (it's on the way), I'm just going by sound and feel. But 5th gear at 30MPH, for example, seems awfully lumpy to me.
