hmm

I've raced a few times from the "L". One thing to remember, shift to second before it maxes, because theres an ugly lag, so by the time it maxes, it shifts. Its really annoying, i wish i got a manual :cry:

Does it screw up your car ? err wheres GTE 8)

It's fine, just don't rag on it.

The car is smart enough to retard the timing if you don't upshift and it won't downshift if that would cause it to redline.

So it's pretty idiot proof.

Sometimes it feels like the TC slips a little when I do it, so I let off the gas a bit when I shift.

That seems to help it lock up a bit.
