Uhhh...

I gotta learn my hwy gearing.

At a 70mph start, I used 4th instead of 3rd.

Even though I was beat fair and sqaure.......it was a 2006/7 new Mustang GT.

No excuses, except that I need to learn my gearing better. I've only had it for 3 days. Not gonna try to be crazy, I need to learn the car better.

You can tell WHY you hate the stock shifter after something like that.

Take my advice guys who don't have a GMM/B&M/etc.,

Get it, I felt like I almost shifted into the wrong gear, because I was more focused on the traffic (which you should be) and as soon as you take focus away, the gearbox is horrible. I hope the GMM is as nice as they say it is. You FEEL it clunk into each gear, and you feel it in neutral not loose, etc.,
....

Anyways....

Any advice for the 60-70mph highway runs?

The finest shifter will not select the gear for ya...
d'OH

I got eaten by a Firebird recently because he wanted a 40 roll. I was totally in the wrong place rpm wise, as I like to dig race. I know how ya feel!
He gave me a rematch...and then sprayed the hell outta me with a stealth setup.
Go find that GT and get our rep points back!
