Or just leave it in D and go. Most transmissions will have a higher line pressure when you leave it in D as apposed to shifting it manually. This higher line pressure will make it shift faster and harder, and it won't bounce off the rev limiter like you can do when you shift it manually.

The manual downshift feeature is just there for times that you need to keep your car in a lower gear, it's not there for racing(accept for maybe for downshifting on a road course!).

Yeah...he has a point...the automatic is alreayd programmed for BEST SHIFT.


But NEVER EVER EVER EVER DOWN SHIFT AN AUTOMATIC.

You can upshift it fine.

But down shifting it is what breaks them.

Only do it in extreme emergenices.


Also if you race and down alot of SELF shifting.

Look at changing all $100 bucks worth of ATF fluid every 20k miles.

Since self shifitng falsl under EXTREME a driving conditions in the car manual.

I always thought the best way to shift an auto is to remove the tranny and swap in a 5-speed.

no no no that's a neutral drop....very bad, very bad...I'd say one of the BEST ways to KILL your tranny....:dead::dead:
The lift throttle technique is(and please correct me if I'm wrong):
You launch normally in D, your tach will go run up to the redline, on mine about 6,500 rpms. Right when it shifts you quickly lift off the throttle and slam on it again. This will give you car a strong shift, you might lurch forward a little bit, and you should be in the next gear at a high RPM..when I do it I'll usually get into the next gear at about 4,500 rpms. You just repeat this through the gears....

Probably right at the redline...you'd shift it like it was an manual...when it gets up to the redline hit the upswitch and go

Thats simple, either you don't or you install a high-stall torque convertor that puts all the power it can through the wheels with minimal slippage. I know it feels bad at first, but the current crop of ayto transmissions are extremely efficient, they only need slight tweaking to be even more effective.

Edit: you can also try power braking or what others call "brake boosting".

"power braking" or "boost braking" is about 2 seconds before you want to go, you step on the brake and hold it then step on the gas. wait till you get to about 3kRPM then let brake go and kEEP foot on gas. you get a lil better launch

DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT DO NEUTRAL DROPS! You WILL blow your transmission VERY QUICKLY! Hyundai automatics might as well be plastic (if they arent already) trust me...$2k later, and 6 months with no car back 2 years ago..i'm on second tranny :D
