My biggest complaint about the LeGran has been its automatic transmission. It loves to upshift and hates to downshift - allegedly this saves fuel, but it makes the car nearly unusable on the highway... until now. While trying to pass a truck outside Belasco City, I accidentally discovered a way to make the heinous 4LZ-2 transaxle do exactly what I want. I tested this in my 1984 Bruckell LeGran SES, the one that preceded the Sport model introduced in late 1985. It had the same engine, transmission and suspension but it was more luxurious in general (the average enthusiast, as it turns out, doesn't need a plush interior or chrome trim everywhere). Despite the enhancements it was still badged as a plain old SE V6. What you do is you pull into the lane next to the truck and get yourself straightened out. Then you briefly knock it into neutral, then back into drive, and immediately hit the gas. The LeGran shifts into the lowest gear it can safely reach regardless of the throttle position or speed. This sends the car charging forth as though it actually had a decent transmission. Not sure if this works for other models, I'll have to check.
