(maybe there is service information in newtis.com?)

If they removed the torque converter, changed the ratios so that a gear change actually made a noticeable difference, and fixed the lag then it's possible that it would be just fine. If so, I want *this* version on my the G8x.

Has anybody actually driven one of these variants? Or heard feedback on how they drove? (not very reassuring that they replaced it with an M2CS - with DCT)


Update: This page suggests that the comment on the GT3 thread was BS. https://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/20...tomer-racecar/
