How do you not downshift when you're coming out of a corner you had to slow way down for?
Youd rather lug the crap out of your motor?

I dislike "lugging the c__p" out of my motor, so I would/do definitely downshift then.

I do every single time I braked on my 2x4 but my 4x4 trans needs a rebuild so it grinds when inserting it into most gears upshifting or down. I actually only use my clutch to get it from a stop. I float the gears in that truck and rev match if I wanna downshift so it don't grind as much.
