Lift

Guys,

Ive been using lift in second and third a couple of times a week (normally when at lights with leons, A3's etc)

How much is too much though?

Coming form a car which redlines at about 7k it feels like I am thrashing the engine taking it to 8.2k.

Does anyone else feel this after a good 'blip' ?

Cheers

i dont think i make a trip to the shops with out bounceing of the limiter lol especially now i just got my hks high power fitted , i have never hit lift in 6th has any one what speed you at at that point cheers

Only second and third??

What about 1st! :lol:

As for thrashing the car at high rpm's... the engine was designed and tested to run at upwards of 4k rpm with no issues ;)

HKS High power is an exhaust.

You can't feel lift in 6th really. It just goes. 5th you feel a slight oull still. Needless to say you're neardouble the speedlimit at that RPM in 6th. ;)

Last time I was in Germany I was at about 149mph at 7600rpm in 6th. Just couldnt quite do it... yet ;) Hands started sweating badly and I understand fully why people wear driving gloves.

this is probably down to my lack of driving experience in a "racing scenario" but personally i hate first gear lol

i hit the high revs so fast and when i go to do a quick gear change sometimes theres a real loud thump as i change, and a fair old jolt - i didnt notice the big thump in my yaris t sport, maybe it has a more sporty clutch/gearbox combo

is it down to my own style or what?? i drive the 1.6 t3 btw?

(i figure if im only getting a couple of mpg more by driving like an old lady i might as well enjoy the drive for a few mpg less lol)

Hitting Lift in 6th is not possible in this country without risking losing your licence!!

Lift in 3rd puts you over the national speed limit!! :lol:

6th gets you nowhere....

5th tops out at around 145 then 6th just sticks at it....

dont ask me how i know... i just do

sort of agree, but i doubt 145, i askd this a while ago as i had found a photo from someone on facebook hitting roughly 148/149 and people on here when i posted it said 145 wouldnt be possible, although this lad had a few more hundred revs left and was in fifth, maybe it could, hope so as toyota only state 139 if im correct ?

but i used to go for a blast just to hit lift lol dont do it as often now, especialy when just going to work and for obvious reasons when we have the baby in the car :)

remember, life begins at 6200rpm ;)
