C is the convertible? That's a regular 350?

Anyway, it's drivers race, almost identical specs. The convertible weighs 300lbs more and is a pig.

Shift at redline which is right around 7k. No reason to shift anywhere else if you're going for speed.

These cars love high rev an pull hard until the rev limiter shuts them down, it also keeps you in the powerband for the next gear.

not sure what would win in a race but I can tell ya which one costs more lol....

I have an auto, when shifting 1-2-3 I shift just before red line, like 6800because there is a slight delay. basically, this allows me to hit red line without bouncing off the limiter.

---------- Post added at 01:58 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:54 PM ----------

you will also notice that the auto will lurch a little when you shift if you have a tune. if you wait till red line it will not lurch and you give up some time because it will shift like it would stock. Shifting at 6800 ish gives you that lurch, gets you to red line, and still avoids bouncing off the rev limiter.

If you have an auto... let it shift. Leave shifting to the manuals or autoxing.

For what it's worth, the IS350c has 306hp/277ft-lbs and weights mid 3800lb range. They're geared similar to 3.31s for us and have a 6 speed as well. You should be faster than the convertible, but still close. The coupes are our twin in almost every respect and weight mid 3500lb.

If you have an automatic let it shift by itself or shift it by hand if you like. That's what it was designed for.

If you have a manual please don't wait for it to shift itself.

You should beat the convertible pretty easily. It has similar power, similar tranny, and more weight.

Nice. From a roll or stop? Did he pull on you at all or did you walk him the whole way? 2.73 gears in your car?
