from what these guys tell me is
put car in N
press brake all the way down
give gas to 3.5 Grand while pressing down
keep pressed down
put in D
give gas to 1.5-2.0 Grand (depending on mods) while brake is pressed
let off brake and floor it.

Revving a car in N then dropping into drive is stupid.


Your best bet is probably to leave it in drive, and stomp it. Maybe hold the brake down (staying in D), and give it some gas, then let off the brake.

don't forget to turn off the traction control and the overdrive, that is very important because when the is trans is ready to shift into overdrive it will and the pull will not be as strong. get the car retuned with the sct tuner and u will be amazed how much that makes a difference

I never cut off my overdrive...doesn't shift into it until around 105 in my car...but when you're about to race or whatever, do what they call a brake stall, just don't spin the wheels. It picks up the back of your car...fun to do even when not racing. Light turns green, floor it...don't let off till you're ready to quit. Easiest way to do it

oh i left out the step where you let off the gas just so you can get the brake in further THEN put it into D

If I turn my O/D off while driving around, it resets to the default "on" when I shut the car off...

What's the point in cutting O/D off while driving around? All it does is make you get worst gas mileage by not shifting to overdrive to lower your rpms...

someone makes a little module that geos betweent he TCS button and he wiring harness that will keep it at whatever setting you left it at last. I just can't find it again. it was in an issue of 5.0 mustang mag. Anyone know anything about this?

I'll start scouring back issues... I've got about 3 years of them to go through...argh.

Ok here it go's
1. Do not start in Neutral give and gas and then throw it in drive unless you feel like not having a transmission in your car soon because this will tear down the transmission and cause it to go out.
2. Don't start in first as it has been said by many people many times you can not manually shift an automatic tranny no matter what you do, but you can cause it not to shift when it is suppose to and wear it out.

I am not trying to make anyone look bad I just want to help not have anyone screw up there car. If you want to get good runs in an auto get a shift kit and a tork convertor.
To launch do as said earlier. Put your foot on the brake and give it gas just enough to lift the back end slightly but not enough to spin the tires. Because if your tires start to spin you will red light and then you have lost the race before it even started. Just make sure that you practice this before you get up to the line that way you know where to rev it to. Then you will need to figure out what your best launch RPM's are so that you can take off quickly but not spin the tires in the process.

you can manuualyy shift an auto without a problem, you move the manual valve by hand which is what happens anyway when the tranny shifts. the reason you let the tranny shift itself is because the computer can tell when to shift, much better than you.
