    ...and someone clue me in on what a "twin stick" is.
    One of my other cars has a really deep 6th gear and cruise control. If i don't watch what's going on it'll spool the turbo trying to climb a mountain at 2k rpm so i can see your point but if your to lazy to reset the cruise you should've got the auto. Lol


    Is there any other information available about the UK trans as far as how to distinguish a 3.55 uk box over the common gearbox?

    I hate the short throw from stop > 1st > 2nd with people always tailgating. I never thought of starting in 2nd. Can this lead to any premature clutch wear or is this ok to do? I'll have to try it...

    I would think there's a little more wear yes.

    Top Fuel,
    . . . . I would like to see a six speed. Make six the same ratio as fifth and leave first a alone. Make 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th closer ratios. As the transmission is now you fall out of the power band every time you upshift. Just wishful thinking!
    GOD Bless and Thanks,
    rich!
