2nd Felt more torquey in the 6MT. Overall it was a fun car to drive in stick, but I have to say the gearbox isnt nearly as good as the 6MT in the 1M.
Interesting that you say that, the overall gearing in 2nd gear is almost exactly the same on DCT and 6MT cars. DCT starts getting the benefit of gearing as of 3rd gear.
