What do you mean?
It might sound a bit like it because his tires might be spinning before shifting a few times?
Or do you mean when shifting too early when he was taking off? That was probobly to avoid spinning and ride out the higher gears longer.

It seems to me he was giving us a lesson in the "art" of progressive shifting. He was using the torque of the engine rather then reving it out and wasting fuel. My guess he's an owner operator whos paying his own fuel bill. :mrgreen: It's a shame more guy's don't drive like this. :wink:

With the way these new electronic motors work there's no need to hold it to the floor in every gear, just ease up through the gears :wink:
