I just started occasionally hitting up the track this summer and im still trying to work on my driving. I've been trying to break into 14's. The closest I've come is 15.04 or something like that. I think its my shifting and this is what I wanted to ask. For EVERY shift should I still be in vtec after my rpms drop in order to get a decent time? Ive been having a hard time getting it to stay within the crossover range 5800+. I miss it by 300-400 rpms. I've been shifting as fast as i can at redline. Are you guys still in vtec after every shift?

My mods are I/RH/E/ESSMI

I don't know how you couldn't still be in VTEC after a shift unless it's RRREEEAAALLL slow or your not revving high enough (my guess). Try shifting a little past redline next time and see what happens ;)

and yeah you should run atleast mid 14 already :thumbsup:
