Yeah...that was my understanding
At my skill level, the only time I'm really wide open and rowing through the gears is on the start straight...power shifting could probably help me gain a little there. Other than a couple of tracks that have some decent straights, I'm not wide open that much.
This club doesn't care about engine size, so the majority of the bikes on my gate are 350's and 450's or 250 2 strokes. It hurts me on the starts the most cause my little 250F can't keep up with their straight line speed. I will run em' down eventually as they get tired of hanging on to those beast's though.
I know you don't have to be full throttle to power shift...so I will take a crack at trying next race. Sometimes...I don't use the clutch when upshifting, especially a late race when the track is choppy as hell with acceleration bumps. I wan't full grip on the bars...lol
I appreciate the advice as always!
