I know my first gear (when launching) goes all the way up to 5500-6000 rpms at 45 mph before shifting to second, but I don't know whay the speed is when it shifts from 2 to 3.
Sorry if this is redundant, but it really doesn't hurt the transmission all that much to shift through gears manually in an auto... without a clutch? Wow. Thanks for the advice.
Nope, it won't hurt it. You'll be fine. Go practice the launch and then put it in 2nd while going 45 and then hit it, you'll be amazed lol
