I realize that, I was just trying to get an idea. If I'm not trying to do a jackrabbit start, I shift at a lower RPM but found it odd that I can barely make it into the intersection before I have to shift into 2nd. Also, there is a wide range of RPMs that you can shift at, depending on your driving habits.
