Re: Shifting gears, well sort of.........

I'm sorry !

What about a proper Saab 900 ? (i.e. pre about 91 ish)
They have a sinctonized reverse with the result that you can go backward
very fast with little noise

Thats completely not true ! The gear only grind if the gears in the box
are still moving. Try accelerating hard in first, stoping the car
quickly and putting it into reverse straight away - what happens ? If
you happen to gind the gears alot then put the car into first before
reverse - it stop the gears moving.
