And while this is a fine way to drive, its not the most efficient. The problem is that the gear your in doesn't give a hoot what the gear ratio will be after you shift - feel won't change based on the next gear, but will stay the same for every gear. So while you can feel when the engine wants to shift
, you have to do the math and research to know when the transmission wants to shift
