  1. You had a car behind you and you thought the transmission would explode. How stupid. Why would you put that family of 5 in a situation that could have killed all 5 of them? You don’t have the sense to do your stupid tests on a closed course? Stupid!

  2. I did this in my 1973 k10 chevy 4×4 350 th350 it barked my 35 inch bfgs and turned my motor off and that was with the gas petal floored I was doing the cheech and chong 1st gear 2nd gear an oops rev didn’t break a thing started back up no problem but I know of a friend who did it in a crown vic and that car hasn’t moved on its own power since

  3. Had a ’72 Vega 4 speed. Tried doing a burn out on a steel grate bridge. Really quick way to grenade a tranny ! ( I was 18, nothing better to do !

  4. The planetary gears inside your transaxle are moving too fast in One Direction it cannot shift into the opposite direction because your vehicle has to be at a certain rpm in order to engage. Just like your manual transmission cannot be shifted from 5th gear all the way into first without breaking gears because they have to have certain RPM to shift smoothly. Thanks to great engineering.
