As I have posted before I spoke to Will Turner and other Turner Motorsports drivers when they were shaking out the M235 Factory Racer at Lime Rock.
They were very impressed with the ZF8 transmission in that car.
No one’s questioning how good ZF8 is in auto mode.

Rev hang for upshifts in manual mode is terrible and downshifts are not as aggressive or direct as DCT.

We’ve also discussed few posts ago that M235 Racing transmission is in fact different from the production vehicle. It also doesn’t change the fact that rpm limit is very low compared to clutch driven transmissions which may be why they are phasing our M235/M240 racing with M2 CS racing.
