here's a fewquestions taht i'd appreciate answered. i know some are dumb but thanks =)

1) is it ever good to upshift out of a turn?
Sure, in certain situations its fine.

2) is it ever good to be in 4th gear at 20mph
No. You'd be lugging the engine.

3) is it proper to drive to 2k then shift to te next gear?
Proper? Depends on the situation. For most driving, this would be a bit low on the rpms.

4) will shifting quickly hurt the shifter?
Nope, won't hurt the shifter if shifted correctly, but it will cause more wear on the synchronizers in the transmission.
