That's the PRND123 and that's the little button I can click to change gears when I drive. Maybe that's hill assist and it let's me change gears? No idea. I probably sound really dumb but I'm just wondering what it is

After reading through the first page, it's basically "sport mode" for the 2012. Quote from Midnight2012 :

It does alot more than just lock out 6 th gear. And no it won't tear anything up over 45 mph. It can be taken to redline in any gear except 6 th. As for gas mileage yeah you will get less mpg mostly because you will want to have fun with it. And actually using mine around town with 3:31 rear end I see no change as I can give it less gas to get going. Again it doesn't just lock out 6th gear. It hold the gears longer and allows engine compression to slow you down. Use it enough you will find you can get it to downshift by tapping your brakes. Going downhill it will downshift on its own depending on speed and incline. You can also set your cruise controll going downhill and it will due its best to not let it go over the set speed. It is a very cool feature. Use the 2012 and 2013 manuals to help understand how it works as it is virtually the dame as Sport Mode on the 13's. The 2012anual is somewhat lacking in explanation. Just as it is in explaning that you can manually shift 1 2 3 D.

This is what racing is all about...

If you aren't willing to risk breaking your car to win a race, there will always be someone who is, and that's who will win.

Go race a stock auto 3.7 mustang against a stock manual 3.7 mustang with someone who knows how to drive and is power shifting. Winner = manual.

If the guy I raced was Powershifting it would have brought him to my back bumper it's only .10 second fraction I pulled him about 1/2 a car maybe a little more wouldn't say a full car length though

How do you know that he hit every single shift perfectly? Same tires, tread wear, rear axles, etc.? Just because in one instance one time that happened does not mean you can say "auto beats manual every time"

Your right we'll he did look like he has premium package plus he was louder so I'm sure he has an exhaust mod.... The hole just got deeper+1 automatics

You do know that manuals have a different stock exhaust than automatics that make them louder right? No inner ring to muffle the sound....
Even if it was an aftermarket exhaust an AB will give you no performance gains....
Next you're gonna say he had 10 stickers in his engine bay and he had a mustang windshield banner so he had about an extra 40 HP

Premium package? Those leather seats and center console screen will really help him out with his down loan TQ....
Did you mean performance package? If so, how did it look like he had it? What clued you into that?

I was trying to resist taking part in this petty debate, but I can't resist pointing out the flaw in this particular logic you attempted. Premium package would mean his car is a lot heavier than yours. Leather is heavy. The door panel sticker of my v6 premium with comfort package (heated seats etc) is 4500 lbs. Second, his car being louder means NOTHING in terms of performance. Could mean he has an aftermarket axle-back.... which nets a big fat ZERO in HP or torque. Even if he was catless or something, it's not THAT much of a difference.

So, not sure why you think him having premium and a louder car makes the hole deeper for manuals.

Anyway, I see your post count is on the low side... from the way you've carried out this conversation, I'd say you need to hang out a little more and see how the nature of conversations on ME are. We don't say things like "burn your clutch like a dick" here. We try to have semi-intelligent discussions about cars and learn from each other. People disagree all the time, just browse through this string and look at how other people who are defending autos have written their remarks. Disagreeing with people doesn't mean fighting. Maybe on youtube of yahoo sports it does, but you will lose respect here very fast if you keep going the way you're going.

I am so sorry Kona but it is my belief that you will not gain any horsepower from decals. Some may say otherwise, but after meticulous and rigorous testing done over months at the Ford Racing facility, the guys with the brains have said decals will not add HP. Honda still insists that they do.
According to this fine fellow Geok power shifting breaks your car and your transmission can blow from just one "powerful" shift. Make sure you don't lift too many weights, those biceps may just be the undoing of your brand new transmission when you unknowingly shift with too much power.

just my 2 cents about the main topic. most people will be biased depending on whether they have an auto or manual. i think a few things will prove pivotal: besides from the obvious driver skills, i.e. reaction time, a lot also has to do with weight. automatics generally tend to be heavier, what (non performance) options are added, and just as important is whose heavier you or your friend. so skip the meal b4 the race and good luck!

I think we will have to race Geok since you called me out. We will see if I am stupid then.
Vroom vroom. I promise I won't have any decals or windshield banners.

Automatics have been the professional drag racers transmission of choice for decades. There's no denying that they're faster in a straight line.

Under normal circumstances, I would say that the OP has a decent shot at winning... the automatic removes the missed shift risk, but those wheels are going to slow him down so much that he probably won't win even with the "consistency" advantage.

As stated earlier, there's only one way to find out...

GO RACE HIM!!!

I have understood that power shifting from 1-2 is fine. Anything else like 2-3, 3-4 is nothing but burning your clutch.

That's why you power shift through 2nd then quick shift up, the video fastford posted explains it all super well, even says don't power shift past that I think

That's what I always thought. I don't power shift. It's not worth sacrificing my clutch.

So, power shifting isn't power shifting?
You're not really making sense with what you're saying. Yes I am young, no I am not new to cars, only new to newer engine work and working on my own car. Worked on a good amount of old cars doing resto.

power shifting isn't really power shifting?
