But then, I also did not drive on track like Rahulkool, bottle and others. So, maybe that explains it.

Well firstly, His is not aTC baleno like yours. Next, guess he upshifts at 6200 and downshifts at 5000. Occasionally he uses 4wd too as he is bitten by the bug.

OK, why do you upshift at 5000 RPM?

Sorry for OT
