for the track, keep the over-drive in the off mode. for street use under 35 mph, keep it off as the od comes on at @38mph so on the highway or anytime your over 40 mph, you'll want it "on"

After you turn it off, it won't turn back on again unless you turn the car off and back on. The easiest way is to just make sure the green O/D OFF light is lit before every run.
