Tuning shift point question?

I have a A6 2SS/RS it is cammed, dod delete, headers, 3inch exhaust, Cai, tune, 100 shot of nos. I was reading some forums and it said that sports mode shifts at a higher point. My car is tuned to shift at 6,800 rpm. Now when I'm in drive or manual mode it shifts at 6,800, but when I'm in sport mode it looks like it shifts at 5,700. And for all the attempts i was in competitive mode and traction control off. Is this possibly because they didn't change the shift point on sport mode to shift higher? I'm thinking drive and sport modes shift point has to separate tuning. I'm know nothing about tuning but I can fix engine problems. Can someone help. I know how to drive my car but i just started looking at this because I never did dead stop races because I had horrible tires I would only race rolls and use the paddle shifters. But now I have sticky tires

Drive should shift at a lower mph then sport. 6L80 TCM doesn't ref rpm...it uses wheels speed. At least that is how most tuners do it.

What your tuner should have done while collecting information from the dyno tool is determine where your cam HP levels start to plain or drop off, and command a shift point shortly there after. That will allow you to continue to stay in the power band at shift points.

Guys tend to disable all torque management. If your tuner knows how to use it properly, it can actually help your shifting. The key is understand it properly.

There are separate shift speed tables for sport mode. It sounds like he may have just forgotten it. You may need to call him and ask him about it.

Torque management is a very important part in how these transmissions behave.
