Yeah rain and mustangs can be fun. But get too comfortable with it on small roads and next thing you know you'll be facing directly against traffic. Lol.

I don't have a garage so it's easy to take it out and whip it around on the ice and snow

Re: Rain.

lol quilting class? No its The Jouinor Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps, we have a compitetion Drill team, u know the marching with rifles lol.

I was on my way home today and pulled out onto a road in 1 in my auto (will be manual when im rich and famous) and put it into 2 at about 25 mph and the damn thing shifted so hard it kicked the *** out and T/C caught it. I guess I need to use more caution when my transmission shifts so damn hard. Even with out rain when I do 1 to 2 it shifts hard, its almost like a shift kit becasue if im in D its shifts slow and smoother.

I did that a lot too. I ended up blowing my tranny cause of it. Your tranny isn't set up to be shifted by hand. 2 is designed for taking off in snow so that once you get moving you can put it back into drive. I don't remember what 1 is for, but your valve body isn't designed for manual shifting, or else you'd be able to select every gear.

But dot take my word for it. I'm still learning about it

I think 1,2,3 are actually originally designed for towing or packing large weight up hill I could also be wrong but that's what I've been told.. And then what about slap shifters?
