Autocross with Auto Trans
Brand spanking new here and looking for some tips.
I'm participating in my first Autocross tomorrow and am wondering what my fellow auto-tranny focus drivers do.
Im running my bone stock 2009 SES sedan. I was initially thinking I'd just stick my transmission in low (the course isn't likey to have any long straits on it) but I noticed that instead of winding first gear out to a nice high RPM it shifts into second at around 5500 RPM. If I leave it in Drive it'll wind it out closer to red line, but I lose out on the engine braking I get in low.
Anyway, just wondering what others here do.
