Yes you can shift on your own I do it when I am cruising around and want to enjoy my exhaust. But if you are racing just leave it in drive. I can even down shift. But don't down shift from 2nd to 1st lol learned that the hard way.

but yeah i figured it was better to leave it in drive and to turn O/D off..cause the automatic transmission makes some stupid decisions
