What he said - only way i can see it happening is if you bounce off the rev limiter a few times, itd prolly hit 6, know i did once or twice - by mistake thou :oops: :roll:
Wouldnt reccomend doing it on purpose, not the best sound/feeling.

Do you guys honestly get a gear change in on a street light drag? I mean I love the street light drags, but I'm not stupid, I don't speed - or try not to at least, just don't wanna loose me licence.
I don't know what it's like in Melbourne, but we don't have traffic lights on any roads faster than 80km/h here. So since my first gear goes to 90km/h, the drags usually over before second gear change (or for me it is at least - often a 4 banger slowly goes "screaming" past you thinking they've now one) and I'm on the brakes ensuring I'm doing the legal speed limit.

Yes, we here in civilization have trafficlights which lead onto Freeways..
Not to mention in the outskirts there are areas that are 100km/hr with traffic lights, must sound odd coming from somewhere where its so small you dont get out of 1st lol, jk.

Sigh :roll:
