I am wondering where everyone else shifts (during 1/4 runs). I've noticed a drop in hp in the higher revs

Well, in my Gt I usually shift at 5000-5200 rpm, since I notice the hp drop

well, i've never done a 1/4 run in my car, but generally when i'm taking someone at a stoplight or something i'll generally try to shift at about 4800-5000 rpm, not much use going past there (on a N/A anyway) ....bear in mind, you want to try to catch the next gear between 3200-3600 rpm, right around the HP and torque peaks.
