V8 to shift or not to shift......

Hi Chris,

When I'm feeling kinda frisky or just want to get off the light quickly,
I put mine in 'S' Mode.  This moves the shift points up the rpm scale 
and it holds first a lot longer than normal.

It also downshifts earlier when you start to put your foot down....

I do this quite frequently.... It's to the point now where I don't need
to look down anymore :-)  I just kinda flick the switch to 'S' at a light
and when I hit cruising speed I put it back to 'E'.....

On the highway If I want to zip past somebody quickly, I pull it back to 3rd,
hit the gas maybe halfway and before you know it your cruising by.......
