Well I have never driven a 6 speed but I do wish the RedLine had a 6 speed. The gears are just fine coming up to speed...but you gotta stay in 4th for a long time cause it really drops off in 5th gear mainly because top speed is 145, so the gear still has to be able to handle that top speed. I move into 5th gear around 100 mph. The only thing that creates a snag between 1 and 2nd gear is when i am at low speed and wanting to just continue a low speed...its hard to find a gear that accomodates 15 mph. Like when i am in the neighborhood. Where did you hear it drops in power between 1 and 2? You gotta ask an owner to get the true performance reviews.

Mine arrived today, will be picking it up Friday/Saturday. I'll give a review after driving it for a few days and can compare it to some of my friends cars.

way to resurrect a 4 year old thread!! Not to mention a completely useless thread, atleast make it a worthwhile one.
