Automatic Shifting

Is it safe to use the 1,2,3 gear positions to shift in my automatic gt? My friend said it would mess up my transmission so i only tried it out once and it was so much fun to drive that way. It felt like a completely different car

it shouldn't really do much, as far as hurting your transmission. it's all computer controlled.

Ya I don't think it messes anything up, doesn't shift the car any faster or better, I do know if you did this in the pre 1998 4r70w trans it would cause premature failure

If you want to shift buy a stick or Ferrari with paddle shifters

I've got a tci ratchet shifter in mine (came with car). I don't really use it for manual shifting but it looks damn good. With a firm shift race tune these autos do pretty good on their own.

My one girlfriend talked me into a color of a car but we were dating for 3 years and I didn't see the end in sight lol but then we got a place together and everything changed, I felt old, I was only 22. Haha so I kicked her out

Agreed! If an average girl has a sweet car, then that's awesome. But, when a hot girl has a hot car and actually drives it.. DAMN!

My wife's new V6 and my Shelby. I took her car round the block (first chance I had to drive it) and its a whole different car to the Shelby (no ****). It's an Auto and so quiet compared to mine. We are looking at custom tags - mine is S0SCARY and we found that S0TAME is available but not sure if she wants THAT on her car! It can shift pretty good if you punch the gas!
