most of my driving is around Roanoke City / County and mountain backroads. i shift at anywhere from 1800 to 4200 rpms. lately i've been trying to shift for economy (~2k) but i P2F accelorate past 4k rpms in 2nd and 3rd at least once daily (cleansing + fun ).tditom said:Rob, could you refresh us again on the type of driving you do most commonly? And how do you shift? TIA.
additionally, my TDI is loaded a lot. my hidden hitch is hyper active - either a bike rack is attached or i'm towing my 5x8 utility trailer and have the roof rack on with a canoe or other gear on top. i definitely do not fall into a "light" use category.
this is what she looked like last weekend...
and here she is in the parking lot moments ago with just my beloved RIG 29er single speed...
i have an air lift kit installed that keeps the rear end nice and high when loaded - notice the clearance above my new Nokian i3s in the back.
