I'd love to try and shift a non syncro racing gearbox.

I remember a vid on here a while back, where he was driving a NS Racing gearbox, and his shifs were blinding fast. revs dropped super fast, and he just slammed the shifter into the next gear.

Yes, that's how it was when I was shifting the Formula 2000 non-sychro gearboxes.

The gearbox on the McLaren M6B does NOT work that way.
