Henry I am glad you brought up the DT12 automated transmission as that concept can be difficult for people to grasp.

Change and technology advancements can be difficult for many people to accept and adapt too. A very common trap as we age is getting stuck in your ways and in a rut and getting out of that is the same as getting out of your comfort zone and that's the first challenge in this ever changing world. Keep up the great work Henry and keep educating us. Thank you.
