I think you are in luck, as far as when you got to this point in your original post. The 6-spd is really not that different from the old 4-spds, as far as downshifts. 1-4 is still the same layout...

On the contrary, I don't think people are buying a 707 hp car to be "slower", in the first place.

You can have it either way in a modern automatic. There is no such thing as "ride in the car", other than a semantics game that plays out in a person's head.

I think it does say "off-road use" (as do all MMT-based additive products, I presume). It seems to be a standard MMT additive, which is probably not good for your oxygen sensors on long term use. A...
