I short shift and have even raced people shifting at 3500-4000 in the Roadster. If I red-lined in the first three gears I would not have a license. I hit my 1-2 at 6800 and find I have hit 60 in about 4 seconds from a dig. I have to settle down after that.

It's nice to hop in the 3 the rest of the week and NOT need to downshift and ride the tq.
