the secret is to learn how to drive the car better, end of story. just make a verry quick shift. i know its not good to do, but wont hurt of you only do it at the track. keep pressure against the shifter like youre going to 5th, and as soon as you puch in the clutch, itll pretty much just know to go there. plus, what are you shifting at. most people are saying around 6400 is best. and how are you running a cobb stage 2 with a stock exhaust?

I want to 2nd the comment about putting pressure on the shifter before depressing the clutch. This is KEY. I can't imagine pulling off super fast shifts without doing that, it just goes and it's almost as if there was no shift at all.

^According to the SP Calculator, you should shift at the following:
1st-2nd-7000 (Redline)
2nd-3rd-6800
3rd-4th-6600
4th-5th-6900
5th-6th-6500
