Good point, some experimentation needed with different shift points. The driver did use the paddles to change, think you can see an early 1st-2nd shift to stop the wheelspin. Car immediately crabbed 6-7 inches at the rear and held it there through first.

One thing for sure though, this is a quicker car than 5.6 seconds.
