Best rpm to shift when street racing

For you experienced street racers, what rpm is the best shift point for max performance. I have an 03 tenth anniv. Cobra with SLP loud mouths and K&N cold air kit. Thanks.

no one here would street race. But I think peak power or least peak torque is made in the 5300-5600 range I might be wrong so someone can chime in here

You need to attend the upcoming Drag Day Event or an On Track Event to practice your shift points in a contolled enviroment! The street is for getting to the track!

Sorry, I should have used better terminology: What is the best shift point for max performance.

Right at redline, especially if you have a twin screw blower. I think most TS and turbo owners actually raise the rev limiter to 7,000 rpm's. With that said some say that a Eaton car falls off before redline, and I say BS my car pulls strong all the way to 6,500 rpm's. I might try and shift a 6,200 or rpm's so you don't bounce off the rev limiter.
