You dont know what the **** you are talking about dummy. Stick to sucking Ford ****.
I have a lot of seat time racing a c5z. 55+ roll in 2nd is an almost instant shift into 3rd. Unless maybe your c5z is a ******* dog.

In a C5Z, 55mph in 3rd gear puts it at roughly 3,500rpm (which is not so good btw). 55mph in 2nd gear is roughly at 5000rpm. Run 2nd to 6500+rpm it'll be about 70mph, putting it around 4500-4700rpm in 3rd.
Starting in 2nd gear is more ideal at 55mph. sw07gt, you're right it is a pretty quick shift, but it does work better than starting at 3500rpm in 3rd. I have personally tested this out myself.

Oh it definitely works better than 3rd, but 45-50 is a much better spot. 60 roll is terrible in a c5z.

This I agree with, 45-50 is more of a sweet spot. 55-60 is the highest I'd recommend (speaking stock gear & tire height C5z). Any higher than 60 is about pointless IMO. But at 55mph, 2nd is the choice gear IMO.

Your dumbass stated "anything over 50 is a bad spot for a c5z".... dont go back on your word now, silly bitch.

Like I said earlier, stick to sucking **** in back alleys. Instead of marauding around on forums giving out **** advice.

It is a bad spot. I would never pick anything over 50 as a starting point for c5z. In a c5z that makes decent power 55-60 is just going straight to the limiter.

At 55mph, 2nd gear is the better choice than 3rd, plan and simple. The car's still going to run 70mph in 2nd. Anything under 60, should be in 2nd for sure (figuring the car doesn't just smoke the tires of course).
