Just pick a gear range with the manual, and let the advantages of the electric motor do their thing.

Good luck.
Hi madderscience. I kinda have the same question. Did you mean just mate the electric motor to the standard Automatic Transmission and choose either 3, 2, 1 on the A/T gear lever and stick to one gear?
