When to shift in relation to peak power and gears
I've got a 393w that makes peak power at 5400 rpm, it's a really small streetable cam, I'll be upgrading at some point but for now I've added a progressive nitrous setup to help with some more power. I'm running 26" drag radials and I've also swapped the 3.55's for some 4.10's. I'm curious at what RPM should I shift the car, it's an Astro A5, is it ok to rev past the peak power at 5400 in order to keep the car higher in the RPM's and not run out of gear at the finish? The track I run at is 1/4 mile. Is it ok to rev past peak power, would the nitrous help it out at the higher rpms, I haven't had a dyno run with the nitrous yet.
