Anyone tried it. I always owned manual so I dont know how it is with an auto.

Anyways anyone tried it, like puting it in N reving up then into Drive? Sounds like a bad idea then agian its not very good for the manuals either.

Let me know if anyone has tired it, or anyone who has opinion or thoughts on this.

That brings back memories. I worked for Avis renta-car in the 80's. They had a ton of Renualt Alliances that we beat on regularly this way. It was great fun!

Yes I did hahahaha. the thing had around 135k miles on it already (nice 1st car huh). i only launched at 3-3.5k rpm twice and the trans was SO fucked. park was park. reverse was park. neutral was drive. drive was [2]. [2] was [1]. and [1] was also [1]. thats right there was no reverse. and i had to drive the thing for a week before getting it fixed and got stuck in my school's parking lot the next day. so seriously...no launching in AT.
