The Figaro engine is around 1000cc which is considered pretty small it has a turbo to give it a little more poke. The turbo is most efficient at high revs so I drive the cars with this in mind. In order to keep the revs high I frequently change gear manually as I find that the auto gearbox frequently changes up too soon and down too late.
For example in slow moving traffic I will manually change into second gear to prevent the gearbox changing into top gear, driving uphill at speeds less than thirty mph I manually change down into second gear then change up at thirty mph or a little over.
For a quick getaway I will manually change to second gear then change up at forty mph or more. Kick down can be used but very often the gearbox will change up again too soon.
