Thats why it is important to have a tranny cooler fitted to a auto if you plan on towing anything.

lol.. i always thort autos were the worst for towing as they dont have the pulling power and because it screws your gearbox as the bands streach.

my manual laser tows this no worries.
i'd of thort a new falcon wouldnt have any trouble as good old Laser Power loves towing it.

its only a 2 tonne trailer.. the trailer has its own disc brakes so braking == not a problem.
