Agreed that below idle speed in first is worse. Unless you’re in a stop and go traffic jam going up a parking ramp or a 10%+ grade road. That is manual hell - or a really difficult challenge at least - if you don’t have hill start assist.

P.P.P.S. “Jason and the Cargonauts” or even “Jason and the Cargonuts” / “Jason and the Car Go Nuts” also have a very Jalopnik-thematically appropriate ring to them.

Or, for your Scimitar and Tioga, “Jason and the Car Go Naughts” (or “Jason and the Car Go Nots”)!
