    i've read where some have went quicker putting the selector in 3rd instead of 4th. i tried it, didn't change a thing.

    Unless you have some really low gears or a really fast car, you won't shift to
    4th in a quarter. Worthless information your friends have told you.

    But if your racing from a roll - The tranny will drop gears faster when selector is in 3rd rather than OD.
