this is a dumb question, def n00bish.

but i was wondering if theres any tips to racing an auto.

i got it for 13,000 and it was a really good price, so im probably gonna trade it in in a year for a manual gt or gt-s, cause ill get 13000 from most places.

but for right now, is there anything to make it fly?

like holding the brake then hitting the gas while in tiptronic?

or going neutral to the tiptronic?

i was wondering if the neutral messed it up because its like ucan sorta slap it down to manual.

but ya, it just sorta stops when i do it, doesnt fly forward like a manual car, how do u do it?

thanx guys. Sorry if this is dumb

Neutral to drive:nono: You will break something.

2, Your car will not be worth 13,000 when you trade it in next year. It is not worth 13,000 the very SECOND you drive it off the dealer lot.

an AUTO GT-S is super slow. There isnt much you can do other than replacing the tranny to a 6 speed and go from there.

1st rule about racing with an auto GT-S: you will lose. ;) The auto GT-S is the slowest of all Celicas (even an auto GT can beat it).
