Overdrive

Quick question... Should I use overdrive? What does it do? And should I use it when I race? Also when racing am I better off keeping it in Drive or should I shift it manually? Pros and cons of auto shift and myself manual
Thanks everyone I know kinda newbie questions!

Overdrive off allows the engine to rev higher before shifting, using more gas so if your racing or just wanna let loose do it but for gas reasons don't do it. And standard driving is the same... Fun for showing off and driving but could blow the engine and uses more gas

All overdrive is is your forth gear. If your pulling a load you turn it off so that it's easier on your torque converter. It will mess with your shift points some but will not raise your rev limiter.

Mine does, if I'm not using od off I shift at 1 1/2 rpms, if od is off I rev up to 2 1/2-3 before I shift

That's not your rev limiter
Like I said it will raise your shift points for daily driving. But when you punch it with od on or off you will still have the same rev limiter
