Cool How to race while on slow speed

Hi Guys,


May be a dump question ,New to mustang. Just wanted to know how do you show/do the racing sound when you just going slowly? Automatic transmission.

I mean, I am going slowly and I want to make that race sound without making more speed, but transmission is automatic?

Thanks
Jake

You don't. I guess you could put it in neutral first, but what you are describing is something easily done with a stick shift, not an auto.

You could pull the stick down into 3, 2, or 1. As long as the transmission likes the rev range you are in, it'll dump you into "Racing Sound" territory and if you are driving a S197 the transmission will stay in that gear until you are tired of it, or it comes apart. You can upshift and downshift through the first 3 gears as long as your thumb can hold the lock-out button in.

Keep in mind, the OEM automatic is not a heavy duty or competition transmission. Playing around like this is not good for it. You will be introduced to the Rev Limiter too.

OP pay attention to this whole post by Dana W, as this is terrible for the trans. Doing this long term will spell new trans in your future and depending on miles and current trans condition that could be in a near future if done to much or if not good condition the first few times could be all it takes and no way to really know until the trans starts slipping and then it is to late.

Best thing to do is leave the revving to the imports... haha
