D 1 2 3

Hello,

I have an automatic 2011 mustang. I was wondering of I put the car on gear 1 and went all the way to the red line would it shift on its own?
Also if I put it on 1 can I manually change it to 2 and 3 or will it damage the car in any way?

Thank you in advance

You should be able to shift through the gears without hurting anything. As for the redline shift, I don't know if there's some kinda override that forces you into the next gear. I guess there's only one way to find out! Lol

there is no benefit from manually shifting, probably makes the car slower honestly.

If its down to who's driver mod is better and you have an auto.. All you can do is keep it in D and floor it. Whoever gets the holeshot will win, if y'all are even. Good luck AT THE TRACK!
