Re: RPM Power Curves
I spend time in second gear in the mountains at 5 -7000 rpm at 50 mph. I am never in 5th unless on the interstate at 70 +. Oh and the second /third gear at 5-7000 allows you to control speed on corner entry without using your brakes. I have 108,000 on her now and still have 1/3 of the original front pads left.
