Shifting an auto?? 100% funner :)

Ok so 2night I was out with my girl, and I happend to pull up beside one of my old friends in a 98 chevy (4.3L v6). So we throw revs, talk ****, and go. I put mine in 1st. I hit 5,000 RPMS through it into second and blow by him.

OK first off, using the gears on the auto is like 3 times as fun as just driving hard/fast.

Second... how hard is that on the engine??? Am I destorying my baby v6 (that only has 20,000 miles??)

O yea 98 stang auto v6 just so yall know.

The Auto was not made to shift like that.... 5000RPM drops can destroy your tranny.... I would not recommend doing that.... If anything power break...just get some Gears 4:10's would work great for you.... and power break.... But shifting the automatic is not good for it... 5000RPM drops are not good for any car...

Does not have to be the e-brake.... It can be the real brake also....


Press the Brake... and then start to press the gas.... press the gas until the car starts to brake free.... hold it there for your launch

yeah, and you can trap fluid between the bands, which makes for a long slow spiral of death.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
