Here are the abbreviated M5 results to address the ongoing questions as to ideal shift points in that car.

Only the first three shifts (into 4th gear) are to be made at redline for maximum performance. Sorry the curve traces are so wide, for some odd reason I could not get them narrow as before which is the default. Either way one can still fairly see the curves crossing.

The software automatically determines the ideal shift points based on the force curves crossing and reports them in tabular form as well. 7th gear is not shown in the table (minor bug):

Also, for clarity I am not just using peak torque and hp values but curves almost exactly as supplied by BMW.
