    Wow is this exciting. We're about to take delivery of our DP in a few months. Unfortunately we're newbies and have many questions. I've thoroughly enjoyed the help this forum has and continues to provide. I've read many of the Allison tranny responses and have a driving question. Through the years I've practiced driving up to speed rather than accelerating faster to maximize fuel economy. If I understand correctly with the DP moving slowly through the gears could cause the tranny to "search for the right gear and possible result in hard shifting or shifting back in forth between gears. Any advice on managing the gas pedal would be appreciated.
    Thanks Rick

    Driving up to speed I am not sure exactly what you are saying. BUT as long as you are using constant acceleration your transmission will not have a problem as the band width for up shifting is rather narrow
