I was talking to a buddy of mine that told me that I should NOT downshift into 5th when in 6th gear. He indicated that the 5th and 6th gears are not truly sperated from each other.....:confused:

He didn't have much information for me, so I'm a bit curious as to what he is speaking of.

I took a look out on google and I can't find any facts to back up what he is talking about.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm not sure, I can think of a couple of things.

He could mean that the rations of 6th and 5th are very close. So if you feel the need to downshift from 6th, 5th would be too tall also?

Or that there's a risk of shifting into the wrong gear because the gates (on the Celica GTS) are said to be very close. It seems to be fairly common with the GTS that people blow the engine because of missed shifts.
