Change gears below 7k most of the time but it's happy to go to 8k, tried changing below 6k because that's where the max torque is but that's bullshit and just made it slower.

I tried dumping the clutch once but it just felt like it was really hurting the drivetrain so never did it again, I did a 1.8 60' once too so I guess it's got a 12.9 in it, though I haven't been for a few years.

Changing at max torque is always gonna be slower than riding out the gear.

Firstly, power is what makes a fast car, not torque. Power is torque multiplied by RPM (multiplied by a scaling factor). So even if your making less torque, doing it at a higher RPM will mean more power. And power is what accelerates the car.

And ontop of the above point, even if your making less up in the high RPMs. Holding onto the gear longer is still gonna be quicker for other reasons.
The lower gear ratio will allow the power to accelerate the car faster than a higher gear ratio.

And ontop of those 2 above reasons, there is a 3rd reason. If you can keep a lower gear at the 400m, then it means you not wasting time shifting gears, that is like half a second more time you can spend accelerating instead of coasting.

Doing that 11.8 @ 116 in a heavy 08 with 360whp must of been some epic stick shifting!!!
