rl589: kool yaar wish you have made a video - people always underestimate steermatic
for quick accelaration: start with 7 speed mode on S and as you go to 5000 rpm change to auto (s) but for attaining good top end u gotta go to D eventually
so u are saying that in the drag u were initially 2 cars behind, that is understandable since manual car will always have an advantage of quick launch!!!
if u would had a rollon on 30km/h the story might have been different
a few months back i also had a roll-on with a corolla, i got the initial lead but it caught up but not that easily and u know the most surprising thing???? it was an altis manual!!! and since it was night time i did not know which rolla i am taking panga with - yes altis won but that is understandable since it is 1.8 DOHC manual
