Thanks, John. The phrase "highest torque range" should perk up Bill's
ears and I await to hear from him on the subject. ;)
That progressive shifting bit sounds tricky, though. From what little I
know of manual trannys, you could end up stalling out. Isn't that called
"lugging" the engine?
Anybody ever tried this method of shifting?
Correction: Anybody ever tried this method of shifting in their
DeLorean? :) Sounds like it would be a great way of decreasing your
acceleration time so you could start beating those pesky Chevy Monte
Carlos off the light.
