I have no skin in the game. Just posted a single link with a little more info on the trans that was collaborated on.

Does anyone care as much about manual mode in an auto? Serious question. I spent some time on a BMW forum yesterday and guys were saying auto mode feels better and outperforms manual mode. They had their own complaints about manual mode of the trans you refefenced.

If guys are dragging their cars my suspicion is they will make adjustments in their tune regarding their shifts... not much need to be in manual mode at thst point

I always get a kick out of you dogging domestic fans.. you are the exact same thing in BMW form. Unable to see it without a strong bias. As the domestic creeps into these higher prices of the Germans... it will be hard to argue the fact domestics have performed well for a lot less money.

I enjoyed it in the 6th gen SS rental I had on some twisty roads, the auto rev match and such into corners and keeping it in the gear I wanted was nice.

I'm sure daveb will have data as to why the 8 speed in those cars is a turd compared to German cars, etc., but I really enjoyed how it responded and shifted.

During the three HPDE days I have done, shifting the auto manually has a much better feel. Letting it shift itself even in "track" mode will downshift early or late leaving corners depending on throttle and speed. Sometimes downshifting as you roll on to WOT when it could have just stayed in the same gear it was already in.

I can also stave off overheating my trans on the vette by basically leaving it in 3rd and 4th the entire time. Only low speed (under 25-30mph) does it need to go down to 2nd. And It never needs to hit 1st, but will if you let it shift itself.

In my old 15GT with the A6 and my 16c7 with the A8, manually shifting was much smoother.

Solid point. My mind was strictly on straightline.


LUND went 11.30s at 124mph with the A10. Tune, tire, and e85 only. Stock tires were cutting same 60s but the reduced weight picked up a little at and mph.

They went 11.50s with same combo and 93oct.

They got into the 11s on tire only with the a10.

2018 Ford Mustang | CarGurus Test Drive Review
Ford gives its 2018 Mustang a significant refresh that leaves the car looking meaner up front and deletes the previously available V6. The turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder and the 5.0-liter V8 continue, but the V8 produces more power and both transmissions are new. The new manual remains a 6-speed, but gets a twin-disc clutch and dual-mass flywheel, and the new automatic has 10 speeds, was co-developed with GM, and includes paddle shifters. The EcoBoost produces 310 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, while the upgraded V8 makes 460 hp and 420 lb-ft.

All 2018 Mustangs get new shock absorbers and upgraded suspension, and the Performance Package offers an optional MagneRide magnetic damper system that improves handling. The new Mustang’s cabin also offers upgrades, from a heated steering wheel to a 12-inch customizable digital dashboard, and a number of advanced safety features, including pedestrian detection and lane-keeping assist, are optional.

A Stock 2018 Mustang GT Is A Cheap Way To Get An 11-Second Car







Nearly 20 years ago, an 11-second car was fast. It’s still fast now, but back in the early 2000s, if you had a 11-second car, your shit was fast. Now it’s 2018 and a stock Mustang GT that you could walk off the lot with today can lay down an 11-second quarter mile like it’s nothing. What a time to be alive.

The team at Hot Roddecided to go test the new Mustang for themselves by taking it to a dragstrip. On their final and best run, they hit a quarter mile in 11.835 seconds at 119.51 MPH. This was with Drag Strip Mode and the 10-speed automatic transmission.

















To put that into perspective, a 2000 Ferrari 360 Modena could do a quarter mile in 12 seconds, according to Zero to 60 Times. So, there you have it: a muscle car in the $40,000 range that can smoke a Ferrari from just a decade before.
Will these cars plateau at some point? They have to, right?

First 2018 Bullitt Mustang Reportedly Heading To Auction On January 19



The long-awaited 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt has yet to premiere but it has already emerged that the first production example will be sold by Barrett-Jackson at the company’s Scottsdale auction on January 19, 2018.

Members of the Mustang 6G forums made the revelation after discovering that Lot #3006 is simply dubbed ‘Ford Charity Vehicle’ and features a darkened image of the original Mustang Bullitt. The description then reveals that “Ford Motor Company will auction a special new Ford Mustang” at the event “with 100 per cent of the hammer price benefiting Boys Republic.”

Boys Republic is a private, all-boys school for troubled adolescents in California. Interestingly, Steve McQueen from Bullitt actually attended this school and went on to serve as honorary chairman in 1966 and 1975. Giving the proceeds of the auction to the school will be a perfect way to celebrate the Bullitt legacy.

It is understood that the new Mustang Bullitt will be based around the Mustang GT and therefore continue to use a 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine. While it won’t benefit from any significant performance increases, the styling of the Bullitt will be bespoke and include a dark green paint scheme, five-spoke wheels with chrome and black accents, distinctive badging, and some unique interior elements.

If reports prove accurate, the Mustang Bullitt will be shown to the world at the Detroit Auto Show.

2018 Ford Mustang GT Matches Lexus LFA In Quarter Mile




We get it. You really dislike ads. Here's an idea; how about supporting Carscoops by sharing our content on social media channels like Facebook , Reddit and Twitter?


When Ford revealed the figures behind the 2018 Mustang GT, we were shocked to the say the least.

The automaker claimed the pony car, thanks to its 460-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 engine and new 10-speed automatic transmission, is capable of a sub-four-second zero to 60 mph time. That, as Ford was quick to point out, made the new Mustang with the GT Performance Package quicker than a Porsche 911 Carrera.

Ford, though, never provided an official quarter-mile time for the car.

Hot Rod (via Road & Track) got their hands on a 2018 Mustang GT and decided to do some instrument testing at a drag strip in Florida. Without beating around the bush, the outlet managed to clock a time of 11.83 seconds at 119.51 mph. We don’t have to tell you that’s quick, but we will – that’s a quick time.

It’s important to point out that Hot Rod also tested a fully-loaded model with every option box ticked, so it wasn’t some stripped out featherweight. And the outlet didn’t tune the Mustang GT or manipulate it in any way. All Hot Rod did was change the tire pressures – 26 psi for the rears and 45 psi for the fronts – and launched the car at 2,000 rpm using the car’s drag mode.

To put that into perspective, Car and Driver clocked the 2012 Lexus LFA with a quarter mile time of 11.8 seconds at 124 mph. So, the new Mustang with the GT Performance Package is as quick as a bona fide supercar, which is just mind boggling. If the Mustang GT is this quick, we can’t wait to see what the upcoming GT500 that’s rumored to have a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine is capable of on a drag strip.

2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt will debut next week in Detroit





An unnamed source has reportedly confirmed that Ford will reveal the 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt next week at the Detroit Auto Show. Ford has not made any announcements about the 2018 Mustang Bullitt, but a source confirmed the debut to the Automotive News.
The debut is expected to be timed with the 50th anniversary of the Steve McQueen movie that made the special Mustang famous. The car chase in the 1968 Bullitt movie with McQueen’s Highland Green Mustang GT 390 fastback made the car an icon. The 2018 Mustang Bullitt will likely feature the same dark green paint, as well as the five-spoke black wheels, like the Mustang in the movie.

Although Ford hasn’t confirmed the 2018 Mustang Bullitt, rumors about it have been going on for months. Recently a a dark green 2018 Mustang was caught during a commercial shoot in Chicago, which is believed to be the new Mustang Bullitt. Luckily a forum member on Mustang6G.com managed to capture a few shots of it.

Spinel Green 2019 Mustang First Look!




A few months ago members of our forum discovered 2019 Mustang paint codes for the Ford Mustang. Among the color palette is one called “Spinel Green” which sparked speculation that it could either be a placeholder or successor for the Dark Highland Green paint used for the Bullitt Mustang we all know is coming.
We’re now able to put that to rest with the first photos of the Spinel Green paint on a 2019 Mustang body shell, thanks to Mustang6G member TSMam.
While Spinel Green is certainly not pretending to be a DHG replacement or stand-in, this bold green paint color will be welcomed by many Mustang fans after the discontinuation of Guard in 2016, the closest green paint option available for the Ford Mustang since Gotta Have It Green bowed out with the 2014 Mustang (S197). It’s therefore only appropriate that Spinel Green shows hints of Gotta Have It Green and, to our eyes, a mix of Grabber Green as well.
Although the new year just started, you may not have to wait long to order a Spinel Green Mustang, as a recent Ford Fleet Distribution Bulletin showed that 2019 Mustang orders could begin as early as March 2018.
Until then, feast your eyes on the very first real-life photos of the Spinel Green 2019 Mustang.
