Well, if the complaint is that 1st gear is too long (not too short), how would starting in 2nd help matters at all? They had to seriously give it a lot of gas and slip the clutch a lot. Of course, a single article shouldn't dissuade anyone, but perhaps the new 8-speed AT isn't such a bad idea after all.
