    Default ZF 9 Speed

    Interested to know more about the new 9 speed ZF gearbox that will be in the '15 200's? TTAC does a deep dive look at the ins and outs of the new 9 speed. Its a cool read actually.

    Did they happen to have a functioning cutaway? I tend to see these every so often, always find them to be really cool .

    I had to read that article twice... lol

    Does anyone have any insight to our 6-speed transmission? More specifically, I noticed that when I'm traveling at a smooth rate of speed and smash down the throttle, there is a momentary lag. I hear people say its the drive-by-wire throttle, but I'm not so convinced. Specially after reading that article:

    "Under hard acceleration there is a momentary reduction in engine torque (courtesy of the computer to reduce clutch wear) and the shift occurs quickly and smoothly.."

    I'm not complaining about the lag, I just want to understand "why".

    if it's to reduce clutch wear, fair enough, it's not like people are buying these to lap the nurburgring. Anything that makes a car like this more reliable is a win.

    Torque converter is why... Its like if you were driving a manual and had to downshift before you could find any useable power.
