:tweetz: Actually Glides are the way to go with drag racing, less time lost shifting. In theory, your fastest pass would be run at a constant RPM (peak power) down the entire track with some converter slip at launch to minimize tire spin. With a 4 speed, you have three times to miss a shift and/or shift at the wrong RPM plus one chance to screw up your launch.
That said, I'll still pick a stick any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Yeah dude could stand to lose a few pounds eh?
