The limiter is just into the redline.. maybe 100-200rpm.
As for shift delay, its actually pretty bad! I think I was pressing the button about 500rpm from the redline in first and second gear. As you go further into the gears, the rpms are climbing slower and you can press the button a little later.
This is my first auto car and honestly it feels just like I'm playing CSR Racing for Android and trying to nail a perfect shift

Yeah it feels very much like playing a video game. I just cant seem to find the right shifting point especially when im switching from normal to sport. It seems like limiter is lower and shifting feels slower on normal mode. Or is it just me?

I'm heading to the track in a month or so. I've seen a stock 3IS run a 13.8 last year. I've heard of some going 13.5 on some other forums. No slips to back that up though.
