They’ve proven their manuals can’t even handle 460hp so I’d bet that’s why lol

Yeah. 700 is a little much in a 6 speed.

Nahhhh lol
In the standard 5.0's, yes. In the Shelby models? Nah. They use Tremecs...not the shitty Getrags from China.

Imo with high hp cars I’d rather have auto as well.

It makes too much of a difference with acceleration. Not just timed acceleration, seat of the pants feel. Got damn do I love the 1-2 shift in a nice auto in a fast car. Feels like you activated the rocket boosters compared to a manual trans.

If we’re being honest, in a perfect world the auto would handle the 1-2 shift and then it would switch to manual. Maybe the 2-3 shift as well depending on how much power we’re talking

My argument was have BOTH a 6/7 speed AND DCT. Give us choices. Dont help the decline of the manual by saying high HP shouldnt/cant have them.
