Before you ask no it was not the 6 cyl v-tec it was a dx and its my brothers.Considering I have a 4cyl auto I am proud.Anyway He was always talking junk on how his accord was faster than my 6.So last night we were cruizing the blvd I was going about 20 mph he was right next to me I dropped it into 1st he herd the revs go up,We both hit it about the same time,my car took the jump and then I herd a grinding noise (he miss shifted)ha ha from there I never looked back and lauffed when he caught back up.

You doing that stage???? That will surely extend the life of a transmission by dumping a load on it like that. You need a special auto tranny to do things like that, forgot the name though.

FastTII7 is right. Shifting it into first with an auto, while tryin to race isn't good for the tranny. It gives you more power, but at the same time it isn't good. Just don't do it too often

shifting into 1st whil going too fast is bad for the tranny... i agree
shifting into first while putting a heavy load on the tranny is bad... i agree

but since civickiller didnt say how fast he was going and also implied that they didnt get on it until AFTER he shifted, he really wasnt hurting his tranny now, was he?

you wont catch me dead driving an ATX sports car, Fast... in fact, the only ATX ive ever owned is the POS chrysler that i dont care about.

I was only going about 20-25 mph when I dropped it into 1st at almost a idle.Anyway If the tranny goes then in goes the stick so I hope it blows up.Oh and stage sometimes you have to deal with what you got until you can rectify it.
