Just to compare, in 2nd and 3rd (6MT) when slowing down for a traffic light, you don't really have to use your brakes. This car has the most engine braking I've ever experienced.

How severe is this "lack of engine braking" compared to N/A ... ie % scale?
In 2nd and 3rd it's almost identical to N/A. From my experience (about 3-4k miles and 3 track days) on the sc the faster you go the more worse it gets.

Hard to say exactly..30-35% worse.. I eventually just got used to it.
