[DML] Re: Automaitc Transmission Shifting

It is a whole lot more complicated than that. Shift points are
affected by the final drive ratio which includes the tires and the
gear ratio in the final drive (and any losses which there are) the
ratios in the transmission, the distributer advance curve, and the
torque convertor. After all of the number crunching you will come up
with figures that you will have to road test to verify. If the thing
will be field-programable just try different shift points until you
come up with the "best" ones. Remember, the shift points shifting up
are NOT the same as the ones going down.
