seems like my car is in 6th the most. Why the heck is 6th so low? It will cover from 30 to 135? Felt like last gen's 6th was more of an overdrive. I think it's actually identical but the k20 was pretty gutless out of vtec. With the k24 I think honda could have knocked 500 rpm or more off at highway speeds. Feel like I'm leaving some mpgs on the table.

Number 3. People go slow merging onto fwy here, hit the lane at 25-30 mph (I know)...I'm plunked in 3, punch it and a few seconds later, I'm at 75 in the left lane while all the slow peeps are far behind going into 4th.

I love 4th. Effortlessly slams straight back into it from 3rd and gives me plenty of passing power on my 65mph country hwy where people poot around at 50-55.

4th, because you get to feel the full kick of the power band and feel a pretty good Vtec engagement.

My favorite gear? I prefer adventure clothing - a safari shirt, cargo pants, leather jacket when it's cool out, and a broad brimmed hat.

It's a tie between 3rd and 4th. Depends on what I have to do. Get on the freeway leisurely(4th)or get on the freeway in a hurry(3rd).

I'm basically with priv, 15-20 in first then wrap out first and second. That way I can take off slow from a light, when I'm the first person at the light, and get my RPMs up a bit then stomp it once im at 15-20
