Interesting... I know a number of people (Jason Pridmore for example)
who say "get your down shifts done as early as possible".  Key thing
was to be really slow on letting out the clutch on the last downshift.

+1 on the 3500rpm idle... has helped me a fair bit IMHO.

It helps if your idle is set to say 3500rpm and you've practiced throttle control such that when you are shifting the gas is left cracked. That way the rpm isn't far off.
