Thanked: 76 Times

Most road cars use wide gear ratios, so it doesn't make sense skipping gears while upshifting, unless you've achieved a good enough speed in the lower gear.

On my OHC, i always make sure the gear im shifting into gets the engine speed to a min of 2000rpm on a flat surface. If it's an incline i increase this rpm to 2500-2700.

Someone driving a turbo diesel could get away with doing 2000rpm even on an incline. So how/where you shift will change with the transmission and engine characteristics of your car.
