Yeah Bill you may have a point. When my dad shifts aggressively, it didn't feel like Elmo'*.

I don't know, I guess it'* one of those thing where you need to be hearing.
Elmo, were you trying to pop the tires loose to show off?
If he was, it feels alot different than shifting for best acceleration, because you have to let the engine come down a little.
Unfortunately, I think that performance shifting is one of those things where sound is really important. Unless you can use engine vibration or something?
