Funny story when a Mustang tried racing me on the freeway...I think it was the older v6 like '05 so no biggy. He honked the horn 3 times and we took off...kind of..well he took off. I was in manual shifting mode and when I hit redline, I up-shifted but the computer also did it at the same time so I went from 2nd gear and it jumped to 4th so my car went no where. Well it was quite embarrassing. Since then I learned to shift no more than like 6500 RPM and from a full stop it's actually quicker to leave it in DS and let the computer do all the shifting. Downside is you never know if its in M1 or M2 while at a stop in DS mode.
