Auto transmissions shift so fast the turbo never drops the spool.

Patently waiting for the apocalypses to level the playing field in this physiological game of life commonly known as Civilization

On the Thomas that I drive for school, the auto is SOOOO nice. It feels nice and firm, like it should, but since the turbo is spooled, it gives you a good push on the backside. This is even fully loaded with 48 football players on board.

The only manual bus that the district has is a DOG to drive, and it cannot keep up, even though it has more HP than the newer buses, and is shorter.
