Default Just learned stick & just got an Integra GSR. How do I shift to drive it fast--on 0-60 and from a..

...roll? PLEASE READ! ok i know your suppose to shift in high rpms but everytime i do it always jerks on me. from a dead stop when i get into 1st i get all the way to maybe 5000 then try shifting into second but it jerks, i know im doing it wrong but i dont know what my mistake is. when i go into third its pretty smooth but i want to do it to where im going fast though every gear and pulling me hard.

also when im on the hioghway in 5th and going like 55-65 when i downshift to race someone i go onto 4th but the car like pauses for a brief moment then lunges me forward hard. how do i avoid that pause and hard jerk forward? do i need to keep my foot pon the gas the whole time when i downshift? like say im doing 60 andim ready to downshift into 4th, would i push the gas down hard BEFORE i put it into 4th and hold it down WHILE i put it into 4th then just pop the clutch out fast?? or shoiuld i rather be going into 3rd instead???

please explain very detailed as i am not figuring out how to do this on my own. the GSR is totally stock and its a 98. thanks.

kk firsgt of all you can't stop that lunge forward when the down gear on the highway, unless your in a racing car. and when you are shifting normally u probs wona practice at low rmp first coz if you keep jerking it, then you will smash your clutch plates pretty quickly, it just a matter of balancing the clutch and the accelorator,

when you change gear into, say 2 or 3 lift the clutch pedal slowly and then press the gas it mite stop sum of the jerking, it's just practice mate

well if it does drive like how your is because your shifting right at where the vtec is about to engage but your shifting it to a higher gear so it sort of stalls..also could be that your foot is not coming off the clutch insync with your should be taking it to a higher rpm before you shift if you want to go faster...also if your on the highway and only going 55-65 should be down shifting to 3rd gear...which would give you more power....and you just have to down shift then floor it...
