What kind of difference in driving should I expect, performance-wise, between driving in overdrive versus in drive? I can't say I notice much difference. Not saying I want to go out and start doing burnouts all the time (though that would be fun), but I sometimes feel my car is a tad more sluggish than I would have hoped for.

Good to meet you yesterday, sorry it was cut short.

I always ran that in overdrive, never had an issue.

What are you compairing it to for your "tad more sluggish"

No change....unless your on the highway & stay in D when your car wants OD

You'll chew up more fuel because your running at 1-1 instead of 0.7-1

Way back when I remember Fisha sayin that launching in OD results in higher line pressure..but I have no idea.

All I can comment on is the way the car acts...

Good to meet you too Glen. Sorry I had to dash so fast, I had to get back for my mom's birthday at 5.

The car isn't sluggish perse, but maybe not as fast as I want. So its probably me. Honestly I am replacing my summer tires as well as getting snow tires on the rims I just got from Glen. I tried to perform a good burnout the other day with poor results. Honestly its probably my technique as I have never attempted a burnout with an auto trans.

Well happy birthday mom!!!

I ended up going to that car wreck i was listening to when i got to you, we had to cut her out of the car, damn girl was lucky.

Yea, don't use OD for the burn out it shifts to fast back to OD. I didn't do more than one or 2 in that car, but i used drive, got it spun up and she will leave some nice black marks.

That must have been quite the accident with all the cruisers and response crew vehicles I saw. Glad that everyone is ok.

I think first I need to flush the tranny fluid. Smells a tad burnt. That might help. I just want to improve the acceleration is all.

Glen, your comment about rusty trunks got me jumpstarted on finishing my POR job on the car. I'll be sure to get the trunk area real good.

Get all the area of the trunk, wheel arches, all the seems, down in the 1/4 panels. I'm going to fluid film the crap out of the next one i get, cause it wouldn't help the slut wagon at this point.

Good to know. I did most of the frame rails. Just want her to last and I find POR15 does a real good job. She will not be run too much this winter, just on the dry days.

Yea, definately leave the car in OD.

I remember learning about this on the big forum, or from the ECIRS guys, but either way I'm pretty confident that it's true.
