So I've been debating what the best place to shift at is when doing a hard pull. Normally i shift slightly above redline right about 6000-6100. I know the max hp is at 5250 rpm so that is about 800 rpm above peak hp. But with my stock 3.27 rear end, when i shift i drop down to 3900-4000 rpm which is 1300ish below max hp. So what do you guys think would be the best place to shift for best acceleration and keeping in the powerband? Just kinda curious where you guys shift when doing a pull or racing .

Stockish car? 5500 always worked best for me. All are a bit different and driver skill plays more into it than a few rpm either way. Fast clean shifts with a spin free launch go a long ways.
