heres the shift times approximately..it depends once you start driving it
you can hear the engine and feel the car and will know when to change gears.
but anywayz pop it into manual and downshift all da way down to 2 which is 1.
as avg. slow driver meaning you barely press the pedal you should change around there otherwise you will be revving the car more and it wouldnt feel smooth
if you drive fast it will be like this for example
3-4: 80 78MPH
if you drive faster than normal it be around here:
2-3: 30 or 40 depending how much you press the pedal
3-4: 42 or 50
4-5: not needed unless you goin faster..
i think i change gears around 3k on the rpm..jus after awhile of drivin u will know wen to change gears dependin on how hard or soft you are pressin on the pedal.
also to answer your question: Also if i am cruising at 45 what gear do i drop into?
gear 4 5th gear
and you can downshift wit yer car to make it go faster or go wit the current mph sometimes it helps u brake or wutever..if say you are goin 90 121 and you try to downshift to 4th gear it wont let u tho
so dont worry if you will mess up with shifting the is300 will save u from messin it up at times.
Why would someone want to move the shifter to "L"? Just floor the gas pedal and it will do it for you. The rest is just pushing the entertainment-shift buttons. For a true manual feel, manual transmission is required.blueIS said:if you chuck the shifter to L, it'll downshift to 1 only at 10mph (unless you're flooring it at 20mph)
Celica e-shift and IS300 e-shift are different!!!Hirun said:eshift gets a feel of manual at least wit my car it seems like my toyota celica.
also using l-3-d-m is wack. mess up yer tranny in da long run u can sure try it but yea..also use l for 1? l is 1 and 2 same wit eshift 2 = 1 & 2 u cant control 1st gear but u can tell wen it is cuz it downshifts
also goin 45 mph in 5th gear is correct but 4th for faster.
80 mph 78mph is correct i jus est. it was 80 from wut i remember wen i drove.
and yea if u r goin 90 it wont let u downshift u will hear a beep beep well at least for me. i downshift around 70 to race and dis car upshift to 5 wen i floor it at around 80 it always upshift rite wen before i hit da button 2. issed:
Press ECT-PWR button.scottschoe said:eshift sucks at straight-line.....gateshift baby
anyways, I use the 'L' spot so I can hold first as long as I can. good for racing
