With a Stock 5 sp manual 330, Do NOT shift into 4th. Bounce it off the rev limiter in's faster.

Powershift! That is, shift with your foot held to the floor on the accelerator. If you are fast enough, the clutch and fuel cut-off won't be an issue.

Personal result with the above: 14.4

Lastly, practice. It took me no less than 18 passes to get my time down to 14.4 with a 2.1 60 ft. I started at 15.3 if it makes you feel better.

Have fun,

Thanks yea i definetly shifted into fourth everytime and i was dumping the clutch too fast the track was full so i only passed about 5 times i do think i need alot more practice.
