We loose about 1000 rpm, but the track drops off by about 2 seconds from heat to feature.

That what i was thinking around 700 to 1000 looks like i may need more gear car run good early just falls out of range in the feature because of lost rpms

I usually will go up ~40 pts on gear from heat to feature.
