I did this with the tempo all the time, and I find myself doing it with this car. I like a spirited takeoff, the 3800 sounds great when it gets encouraged
, but in an effort to preserve the motor/transmission, I run it to about 30mph in first, let off the gas, and jump back on it after it shifts. Is this preserviing anything? Is it breaking anything? I just feel guilty everytime it shifts under full load, and i know it is not the best for it. Advice?
BTW, I never do this in mom'* taurus, stupid thing shifts stupid slow.
