For Smoother Ride - Suggestion

Ever have one of those days where you just want a really relaxing ride?

Normally, when shifting you get that engine torque lunge when up shifting to a higher gear. If you would like to smooth that out and enjoy a relaxing ride without the lunge. Go from a 5 speed transmission to a simulated 3 speed.

Shift from First, to Third, to Fifth (1,3,5). Even if you wind the gears out a bit, it still smooths out the shifting non the less. Makes for a more relaxing ride and eliminates the lunge.
