    No I mean like I’d be driving 20 Km downshifting to gear 5 but it grinds

    Possibly. Depends on your transmission model, gear ratios, and engine RPM. That's why speed is irrelevant. Too many variables.

    Now tell us the truth. You necro'd and then hijacked a 16 year old thread that was literally explaining how to create new threads. You then created TEN threads on this topic in each sub forum. Your name is "anarchy". So who's alt are you, and how much have you had to drink?

    So heres a rough guide. At 15 mph 6. I plus 5 is 6. So at 25 mph 2 plus 5 is seven so 7. So at 35 3. +5 is 8. And at 45 is 9 cause 4+5 is 9. That’s how I learned to up shift. So on down shift I would downshift 15 or 16 rpm’s just really depends on the truck. Now what I do is listen to the engine.

    IF i were to troll the board, that sounds like what i might do. Albeit maybe more inventively.

    Sadly, no booze for me till home again on fri/sat, so its unlikely that it was me
