    I shifted my '98 auto car manually when the event warrented it. Does no harm to already be in the right gear (like going 25 MPH in first gear, or whatever is the appropriate speed for the gear being used) and I picked up .2 and 1.5 MPH at the dragstrip manually shifting for my uneducated trans control module. That way you can shift at redline instead of 2-500 before. Just like anything else, learn how to do it and don't abuse it.
