Hey, that reminds me of this old thread:
I have considered this, and still am. Talked with Robotech about it last weekend. Going to give Dave a call. He has some knowledge of my build and would be the best source for input. I am worried with the increased horsepower from the hybrid turbo, might need it. No real idea.
Saveaux, what area do you live in? A lot of twist roads nearby? If so, have you tried the I gear in those types of turns. It seems most never use it, and that type corner/drive is what the I gear is all about. If you have, then you know how much fun it is. lol
I have been working in the garage at around 22 degrees for the last week or two. Not supposed to be that cold here for that long.
Taking my Skpel out for a drive to Temecula tomorrow. Most likely no top down driving as the high is about 60 in mid afternoon. Hope to be hom before that.

Q: My Solstice has a 5-speed automatic transmission with shift indicators of PRNDIL. When do I shift into 4, I or L?
A: The D position (overdrive gear) is used for most normal driving situations. It allows the transmission to shift into fifth gear, which provides the fuel-economy* advantage. The fourth postion (4) prevents the transmission from going into fifth gear. It's used for driving around town when you don't need overdrive.
The I position prevents the vehicle from shifting past third gear and should be used when driving on hilly or winding roads.
The L position prevents the transmission from shifting past second gear. It should be used only at extremely low speeds, such as in parking lots or when driving through mud or deep snow.
