Re: New Toyota Supra with manual transmission!

Yeah, I've heard Chrysler's tuning has been mediocre. My buddy has one in a 3 series. Thing is phenomenal, does almost everything you want it to do. I almost think putting a 6 speed in there would be a downgrade. Then again..if its properly tuned.

Re: New Toyota Supra with manual transmission!

Doesn't this use the ZF 8hp series transmission? From what I've heard, it's a pretty nice auto.

Re: Are manual transmission vehicles going to increase in value?

I've noticed that a few models, BRZ, Corvette, Miata..etc. the manual always has a higher price than their Auto counterparts. This is obviously on the used market. e

Re: Electric cars now outsell manual transmission cars

It's a shame but it seems like nobody is dumping money into making a good manual experience. Perhaps the BRZ/FRS, Miata and whatnot seem to be the only new cars that are fun to drive with no rev hang, a good feeling stick and clutch. I've heard horror stories on the stock WRX tune, The Civics aren'...

I'm vaguely lusty for one, then again I'm also lusty for a manual Challenger. My heart is aflutter for all sorts of the things.
The clutch is insanely heavy in those though. I don't think dailying it would be fun.

Re: BKs New Car

Did a test dive of a few cars this week. I was blown away with one of them. Probably the best manual I've ever driven since my old Civics. Absolutely no rev hang and its a 2019. A bit small in footprint though.

Re: BKs New Car

I've honestly thought about just going way old school and getting an old Mustang or something from the 80s-early 00s. Or perhaps a Challenger from like late 2000s. I'd be curious how they were. I'm glad this VW was cheap enough. I'm sure I'll take a bath on it but it's just unbearable. The rev hang...

Re: BKs New Car

I would guess it's related to leading with the fuel and following with the throttle plate in order to keep the engine from going momentarily rich as the power demand lessens, and it could be tuned more appealingly but the CAD jockeys don't appreciate the importance. The newest Mustang I've driven i...

Re: BKs New Car

So, I was driving it in a somewhat spirited manner (revving to 3k instead of 2.2k) and holy crap the rev hang. By the time I would shift into the next gear and look down the revs would only be a few hundred lower than where it started. In some instances, it was higher... Please tell me all new cars ...

Re: BKs New Car

How about a long in the tooth Datsun 370Z? Nobody would be able to tell that it was used. They've stayed visually unchanged for the better part of a decade. Funny, my coworker mentioned it. I'm curious how their throttle response is etc. I've also thought of a mustang ecoboost/v6. I don't have enou...

Re: BKs New Car

Yes, looks just like that. But it's black. Its handsome thing but just devoid of any feel. It felt nice on the test drive..the radio is also balls in it. I need to get it updated. I feel your pain. If it's the same manual as was in the 2011 2.5 Jetta I GET IT . Two overdrives effectively hide any po...
