I HAVE A 2001 SILER/CHAR-GREY E-55. I am new to driving a muscle car. generally which speed do you cruise around town in. 3rd gear i find to be quicker than just leaving the car in the d-gear. What are your experiances with this?

What are your experiances with this?<p>If it's in-town driving in 3rd gear, the tramsmission would likely kick-down to 2nd if you really punched it. If you're "D", it would do the same. Though I haven't tried it, I can't think of a reason why there would be a difference. On the other hand, if you're in third at roughly 3500-4000 rpm, you'd probably be better off than to wait for the kick-down if you were in drive.
