I do it all the time, well, DID it all the time. Not fast in reverse, but like backing out the driveway. Harder to do now with a clutch.

Actually, I half expected your "guess what I just did" thread to say "I broke up with my boyfriend".

I think OEM is the best look. I just don't happen to think any of the various arrangements of OEM got it exactly right all at once

while I'll admit to doing this to past cars of mine, I haven't done it with the legend simply for the hard shifting tranny fact and the fact that the car is old.

One thing that I don't like about the legend tranny is when you go from reverse to drive it takes a small second and it's just annoying. Especially when you pull out in like traffic and try to put it in drive and it's like there and then jumps into gear w/ a small burn of rubber!

Well you know what. If he doesn't quit being an ass to my car I will! We actually just got into a fight because I "don't care about what kind of house we buy or where my (his) shit is gonna go, only if my car will have a nice place inside" Hell yeah I do because my car isn't sitting outside all winter again. He tried to take my car yesterday and I wouldn't tell him where my keys were

Guess who just blew the tranny out on their truck? Hope he doesn't ask to borrow my car.

i'm confused, the thread title says one thing, the first post says different...

shifting from R to D is bad on the tranny mounts, bad on the tranny but not terrible. R to P is terrible on the tranny and will make your tranny brake very quickly.

I do the "R to D" to an extent. I only put the car in R and step on the gas for 1 sec, then I pop it into neutral while coasting and I still am rolling a little when I drop it into drive, but the rpms are down in the 750 range and my speed is like 1 mph tops.

If he does this type of driving in your presence what does he do if he drives it alone.Guess what, u r better off being the sole driver of your car.I hate to see people drive that way.

Yeah, he does the same thing in his truck. It's awful. I'm like, why do you drive like that? But he says I drive like an old lady, which I don't, I just try not to be hard on my car.
