Our friend Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained was enjoying seat time in the new Nissan Z when disaster nearly struck. He was on track, exiting a corner and heading onto a straight when he shifted from third to second. The gear he was looking for was fourth. Thankfully, for both Jason and the Z, he caught the rear-end wiggle and clutched in while finding the correct gear. No damage to person or car.
And, as is the opposite case on the Internet, Jason is here to talk about what happened and what a “money shift” can do for a vehicle. Seeing as he’s quite good at explaining the engineering side of things, that’s exactly what unfolds in the video above.
