transmission operation

some of you may know this and some may not....just in case

when in manual mode you can mash the throttle hard and the transmission will kick down (like passing gear) but you will still need to upshift from there

When I "Mash" the throttle on a Smart all I hear is giggling from behind the seat.

Actually, you don't.......................
IF you just leave your foot to the floor, the smart WILL shift in the red zone
