    Good to know! Thanks. I think a manual setup could be an option (custom design/build).

    It's most difficult for me when stopped on a steep hill. Most of my driving has been in Florida and 5 years in New York, and Florida is genarally flat. Los Angeles and Southern California in general is more hilly than I'd like, but other than exiting my building's garage and some spots in Westwood or Beverly Hills, I've been okay so far. At least my latest van has an electronic brake that holds the brake on inclines, giving me time to put on the gas without rolling backward. That was a concern at a particular stoplight in NY in my old '83 E-150.
