Turbo

So I have an auto. Can I leave it in drive when I'm running hard pulls with boost?

Yes... I would let the car shift itself anyway. Letting and auto and it's programming do things for you in a straight line is why they're good at drag racing. Shifting it yourself is stupid unless you're road racing.

Road racing on a closed circuit, right? Lol.

Pretty sure that's what he meant. That's why a manual is better on a road coarse and an auto is better for drag. An auto w/ paddles imo is the best of all worlds.

Only if the auto is a dual-clutch, then we'll so ok to paddles.
