I did. Slushbox drivers have no such option (ok, they can shift to neutral, but we're talking your average driver, which in this country means zero skills).

Whatever. Sudden catastrophic engine loss (seizure) at speed is not something average driver is prepared for. I hope we all agree that SOA should do something about the oil pickup failures, which based on the data here and in other forums is not some freak case or two.
