    listen from :25- :45 every gear i banged it. its very common. some would say to leave it in D to shift on its own, bu plenty of cars owners (mentioned here already) have significant dct limps when they leave it in D mode..

    completely understand what you mean but id assume thats just lack of seat time with the paddle shifters....i did that in the V a few times but after hours on hours in it getting the shift times right its not hard at all for me to catch the shift and not hit the limiter anymore

    LM is there a slight delay when you click the paddle before is bangs the next gear or as soon as the paddle is fully depressed it bangs the next gear instantly?

    nope...sals car is a "little" tweaked as per tommy....and as far as roll ons in a dct, as i dont have one i have no choice but to take your word for it....i just cant seem to believe its that hard to click a paddle and make sure you dont hit the limiter
    Yeah, it would seem that way. To be honest, that's my only complaint about DCT. There is seemingly a VERY small amount of "lag" (not even sure if that's an accurate word for what I am trying to explain) between the rev counter and the actual revs. What I mean by this - is in manual mode, and in a 1st to 2nd shift (seems to happen to me most often here), when you are right about at redline (visually) - the car will hit redline sometimes before you make the shift. When this happens, the shift is "softened" - not sure how else to explain it - it just doesn't feel right - and there is definitely less power than would be after a normal shift...

    I asked LM about this - and was curious about D, as it seems more consistent for the 1-2 shift... I usually let the computer do the 1-2 and then I switch to S/M for the rest of the gears. If I practiced, and learned the "error", I could probably bang it every time - but haven't given it enough time or focus to be honest.

    With SMG - it was nearly impossible to mess up in this regard, this is one thing that I would say is superior with that transmission.

    It's instant - the delay (to me) only occurs after you hit redline accidentally. All other shifts in the normal RPM range are bang on instant - like insanely instant.

    no, its instant, but the chance of a perfect shift Vs banging the limiter is high in favor of banging it. if you do a PERFECT shift, it will jump the car forward; thats how much acceleration your looking to gain to strive for perfect. if that makes any sense

    @M&M i think has videos of cars jumping from perfect shifts

    Here's an example of the shifts - hard to see him shift, but it's instant:

    That's a perfect explanation - that's why I always end up hitting the limiter, because I am trying to get that perfect shift. Click here to enlarge

    the chirping tires on the 1st shift and the slight "lag" from traction on the next would be the car jumping forward, if it had the traction. its insanely fun and fast- hence why DCT is way more fun than people give credit to when they compare dct vs manual

    To be honest, I don't think either car would be a bad choice. Click here to enlarge

    Although I would say they are definitely two different breeds - although as quick as another, they are more dissimilar than not.

    squeez what tires do you run? r888 or nt05r , or MT's should be on your car if you are doing any type of racing where bragging rights are involved... any street tire is a waste at your power level

    its more about the compound than it is the width of the tire.... 305 should be fine and i know that fits fine cause i ran that size on my 370 when i had it
