For all you auto guys, when you race do you keep the overdrive on or off. Or does it even matter. Just thaught I want to hear what you guys think I should do.
Thanks

I race with mine off. Ive actually noticed a strange thing with the autos and the o/d switch. I can be accelerating in second, and at the proper rpm's, switch it off and feel the slightest downshift. Im not talkin out my ass here, there's even a slight drop in rpm's. Practice it, test it, whatever, certain gears/rpm's are more noticeable than others. Ive tested this many times and showed others. Maybe the o/d has an affect on overall ratio. Not sure, haven't really looked into it. I also shift manauly thru the gears, it holds the gear longer and has made a noticeable difference.

what you may be noticing is the torque converter when its either locking up.. or unlocking
:stupid: Almost all automatics do this, just some are more noticable than others.
