Turbo 400 behind a 308 V8? Seems kinda overkill. Unless if the point was to allow (encourage?) such abuse.

I've read of 727's behind slant sixes, taxi or full size van service I guess.

I usually shift into neutral while still backing up. It helps the car come to a complete stop faster and easier. Once it's at a complete stop I shift into drive.

The trimatic (although a good and efficient) gearbox had a double stacked planetary, and was apparently weak (drag racers still did OK using only the first two gears with third for "overdrive" on the way home from the track), and Holden put the 400 behind the biggest V-8, the 308.

Same here, if my reverse path is simple and predictable.

And I have no fear of shifting into D while the vehicle is moving forward.
