: Aggresively paddle shifting auto. trans. Question

Does it hurt the drivetrain to aggresively paddle shift auto. instead of just leaving it in gear. Basically, can you hold it wide open and paddle shift. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks.

Is there any other way? lol. Just make sure you shift early or get ready to bang the rev limiter(or so I've heard:shhh:)

You can do it at least once.

Sorry, could not resist the temptation.

That was pretty funny, but seriously has anyone done this and had any negative consequences.

It an automatic; it won't let you do anything that will damage it or the engine: it will hold gears and let you run it right into the rev limiter all day long, but it won't let you change down and force an over-rev condition. It will also automatically change down to 2nd in manual mode when you roll to a stop so you don't try to lug off in 6th :)
