This whole discussion doesn't make any sense....recommended shift points etc...shifting up or down at a particular point is dependent on how hard you are accelerating, traffic conditions etc....hitting 5th at 30mph and then twisting it full on creates a ton of cylinder pressure that over time can damage the engine...it's all about hearing and feeling the engine...watching the speedo for your shift points is not too swift either....
