Hey. I just got my RSX base auto. It has feature of manual shifting, which gives advantage over autos. I have never driven this type of tranny before, so I'm not sure how to use it. I tried it few times and I'm kinda confused how it works. I mentioned that even when I stop with 4th gear on, it gets down to 1st automatically, which is not like manual. So I am concerned isnt it harmful for the tranny to do that, or should I shift down myself while breaking. Also one of the assholes in some 3.0l Ford saw that I had automatic and wanted to make fun of me (sports car with an auto), so I put the manual shifting on and accelerated 6000rpm on the 1st gear and went to about 40mph and same 6k rpm on second, so I beat him like a piece of cake, then I put back to auto and stopped. So here is my concern, Is it acceptable to do so with this tranny? Cuz I dont want to mess it up.
