    From the video it looked like the sequential lights can come on as early as 2500rpm (maybe earlier). Seems like plenty of time to "time" your shift even in 1st/2nd gear. Having a variable light sequence seems screwy to me and just an opportunity to forget what you set for a particular gear if your in the heat of the moment.

    There are 3 different modes. The lights light up sequentially from left to right, from outside to center, or just go from nothing to fully lit, depending on what the driver likes best. The lights started at ~2500rpm in the video because the shift point was set so low.

    I have the shift lights in my car set specific to the gears. 1-2 shift is pulled back a few hundred rpm because my reaction time can't keep up with it otherwise. 2-3 is -100rpm. The rest are right on the fuel cut.

    Since we do standing starts it is far more costly in terms of track position, to hit the fuel cut than it is to short shift a tiny bit.
