my freind runs his auto down in 2.. says it holds gears out longer and if the race goes on long her just "shifts" it up to D. Power brakeing also helps.

i think that to clarify what you mean by "power braking" we should say to load up the torque converter...meaning...hold down the brak and gas at the same time at @ 2000rpm to launch...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

well...different units will have differences...you may not get the best launch at 2k...you need to find out what your car does best on your own...for me tho i get a good jump at 2k...it puts those vtec boys playin catch-up...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
