Upshifting after quick stop in traffic

Depending on the weight of whatever your pulling - 2nd or 3rd. 4th or 5th. To get back in gear there are a few ways I know how to get it back. Either give a quick rev and slide it in as you rev. Or place the shifter right in front of the gear chosen and slowly rev up the motor just enough so that its lightly touching the gears, you'll feel it kinda slowing down(the gear grinding) & then viola! It'll almost suck it into gear.

Hope this helps!!

Drive safe!
