For the 2½ years I've driven the Mustang since it's restoration, I've alway driven it's auto. transmission in the first drive position below Neutral, like today's normal cars. During yesterday's session at the shop, the guy said the 2nd position down from Neutral (green dot) is the normal driving position (1st - 2nd - 3rd), and the position I've been using is for traction in slippery conditions (2nd - 3rd). Uh, really? /forums/images/icons/blush.gif
Sure enough, driving home I tried it, and guess what? I have a 1st gear! Crisper acceleration, too. Duh. Why didn't one of you guys tell me this??? Slipping.....you guys are slipping. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
By the way, the air cleaner, shift bezel, and other touch-ups came out great! Ready for Knott's, and I'll be sure to use all 3 gears on the way there....
