<br> Still trying to come up with the best manual shift mode. I go to first and hit the shifter at 5000 rpm and the lag time allows redline shifting. <p> Any clues???

That's pretty much what I do. Normally, the car starts out in second so I tap it down to first, get launched, and then hold the shifter to the right for a couple of seconds to let it go back to full automatic mode. <br> <br> Also, there is a kickdown switch. If you're moving and you want to get a downshift all the way to second when you're going less than about 60mph, you need to push the accelerator all the way down to depress the kickdown switch; otherwise, it only downshifts to 3rd.<br> <br> -- Rick
