kickdown

    SO I was looking at the prices of Focus RS's because i saw one over the weekend. I found a guy who was selling his Miata RF and he had this to say. IT IS AN AUTOMATIC, it does have paddle shifters though the stick shifting is comfortable when in manual mode. Fun fact if you turn off TCS it...

    I was testing it on the freeway in manual mode and it downshifted all the way from 6th to 3rd and it was one of the scariest things. How do you use the kickdown switch correctly?

    The accelerator kickdown gets on my nerves while driving in manual mode. On twisty back roads I would love to use full throttle without the transmisson downshifting. Does this bother anyone else?
