Hey I love cruising in my EB, which has an auto trans. I also drive in Power mode which lets the engine rev 500 or so revs further or so before gear change.

Im wondering if there is a way to access the wire that tells the computer when to change gears, and so have a push-button on the steering wheel that when pressed and held, keeps the car in its present gear till the button is released. Just like on the TS50 I think.

I dont know bout your car, but if im even close to full throttle, I have to back off the accelerator a little to get it to jump to the next gear. I read that its supposedly a minor problem, but it seems to giving me the control over gear changes that you want.

i dunno...putting in a shift kit might help...but i've never heard of something like that button thing. in my auto ED...i just gotta put it in power, full throttle and it holds out to redline before changing. and if i drive it manually it won't change without me doing so.
