    Awesome! If you get it figured out (s65), shoot me a PM, would be more than happy to give you guys my business!
  2. This makes me *real* sad... I almost don't have...

    This makes me *real* sad... I almost don't have hope anymore for the future of our world... Seriously, I am sure they only show the idiots (and pick one person that gets it right) purposely, but just...

    Is there anything out there that handles this for the S65? I refuse to pay 400 dollars for the Delete-R (or whatever it's called) - and would like a "real" solution (like this) that doesn't just...

    Probably one of the few times we have agreed on something <g>

    I can honestly say that if they sold this car with a double-clutch gearbox, it would be in my garage right now. I love this car -...

    I don't think you understood what he was saying... He was saying that instead of focusing more on the finesse of the car (handling, dynamics, throttle response, response in general, etc.) - like...

    I wonder which would win - this vs an E90 M3... You should create a thread.

    </sarcasm> (or is it?) - create the thread!

    Nice car btw.
  7. LOL - touché.

    LOL - touché.
  8. I think your last sentence is what I am trying to...

    I think your last sentence is what I am trying to say here... I am not saying the car is bad, I am saying - *for the car* (being what it is) - the automatic transmission/option is not where it should...
  9. I don't think it was a lemon - the reason there...

    I don't think it was a lemon - the reason there is torque loss (of course this is literally 100-200ms) is because an automatic transmission can be in one gear at a time; a DCT can be in "two gears at...
  10. Thank you - I hope it's useful stuff!

    Thank you - I hope it's useful stuff!
  11. Learning Dyno Curves - Recognizing a Race-Friendly Dyno Graph

    I found this on the web today, thought it was actually a good article; the last page shows what a well designed-for-NA head with aftermarket boost does to a dyno (hint: it's amazing)

    Agreed 100% - it's a bit deceptive. I think people in this forum will pick up on it, but stuff like that bothers me... It's like saying "Our car is faster" - when it's only faster/quicker from 0-3...
  13. LOL - or that... :)

    LOL - or that... :)
  14. I guess what I am trying to say is twofold -...

    I guess what I am trying to say is twofold - first part is that the delay from jumping to/from multiple gears is noticeably larger than with a DCT transmission. This really doesn't have anything to...
  15. I am not trying to argue here at all, but what I...

    I am not trying to argue here at all, but what I am trying to convey is that what Chevy said is not an accurate depiction of the truth - if they say the shift speed is faster, most people (not you or...
  16. Right, they said faster, and even gave a number...

    Right, they said faster, and even gave a number to "prove it". Drive one - it's not even close - there is a HUGE delay when using the paddles - it cannot grab gears as fast as I can pull the trigger....

    ^

    Agreed 110% - shame on GM for saying it's better than a freaking PDK, otherwise the two transmissions shouldn't be in the same sentence :)

    Great car nonetheless, by no means would I take away...

    I have heard this a lot - here's my "deep thoughts" on the subject:

    I haven't driven the Z yet, but had the regular Stingray for a weekend or so while down in Florida. I drove the car VERY HARD - and it fell into "limp mode" (I guess you can call it that) - but it...

    That thing is just nuts. I love the S54, and am happy people are still pushing this thing. I really want to get a setup like this one day; I keep looking around for that "perfect" E46 M - but always...
  21. S85: Looks like it's going to be a monster... I love...

    Looks like it's going to be a monster... I love those carbon/ceramic brakes - they are beautiful. Can't wait to see some video when it's done!
  22. OMG, that is ridiculous. I cannot even believe...

    OMG, that is ridiculous. I cannot even believe they would put something like that in a car, much less a +$60kish new car - you know, one from the year 2015. How did this get approval/past QA/etc.?...

    Exactly - or something very similar. This needs to be regulated. Until the dyno manufacturers start reading articles like this, and realize that we think they are garbage - it won't happen. It's not...

    This type of thing makes me so mad. I take physics to mean physics, science to mean science, etc. Torque is defined. Horsepower is defined. These machines costing a TON of money are ridiculously...

    What do you mean? What car do you own? I might be misunderstanding, but are you saying (as example) - you cannot downshift from 4th gear to 3rd gear while braking? Or is it that you cannot drop from...
