Keep it close to the red-line and you'll do OK.

Cruising? Put it in 5.


Don't worry, you'll figure it out. You can't mess up or anything - computer won't let you.

for best acceleration from a standin start follow these steps ( work great for me )

1. turn off TRAC
2. turn on PWR
3. put on M mode
4. floor brakes ( dont use e-brake )
5. bring up revs steadily to 3000-3500 RPM
6. release brake and floor the car simultaneously
7. floor it and let the car shift by itself outta 1st gear ( explanation later )
8. then watch the revs and shift up as needed
9. make sure u make the most of each gear before shifting

-explanation of 1st gear -
when u put the car in M mode, it begins on the 1st gear, just because its not on the digital display doesnt mean its not there... anyway when u floor the car in 2nd gear ( M mode ) u can feel it shift outta 1st gear and start 2nd... after that its up to u to shift up from 2-3-4-5...
