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.
