I have to say the question made me smile. I realize what a knucklehead I am. I just started banging on the paddles and gear shifter as I was driving the car home from the dealership. Had to see "what happens when..." while driving home. Nice to know some people are more careful.

I've found it easier just to keep it in Drive and, when you need a little goose, just hit the left paddle. The computer won't let you drop it to a blow-your-engine gear while in motion. You just hit the desired level of gear, do what you've got to do, and then the car resumes Drive once the speed and RPM's level out. No need to use the shifter at all.
