The gear in which you buy a manual! I would probably just leave it in drive. If you rev too high in low it just going to up shift on its own.

lol, we have a comedian over here. Typically, the term 'advanced driver' and automatic don't go in the same sentence, so yes, keep it in G (garage)

typically , an advanced driver and a N/A cobalt don't go together either.

just leave it in drive, if youre going from a roll then bump it down to I to get your rpm's up. Since we don't have v8's (sex on wheels), we have to make power over 3k
