If you ever had it on a dyno, the shop would be able to tell you from the graph what a good shift point would be for your setup. If not, I would try and get to one if your that concerned with it.

I think everyone here can say I shift at this or that, and it may not be right for him. Unless you can see on a dyno chart where the powerbands are, you will never know what your best shift point is unless you do nothing but change it till you find the right spot.

between 5800 and 6K. Lighten up your car. remove swaybars, quad shocks, spare tire/jack, rear seats and dogbone. No washer fluid and race with 1/8 tank of gas

I cant say this enough. BE CAREFULL doing that on the streets. More people get killed that way, usually innocent bystanders. Tis why 98% of the people here do their racing on the track.
