You'll have to wait till people report back how they work. I haven't heard anything yet. Why do you want them? Is your DCT slipping in your 335?

The clutch before the horse(power) perhaps haha ya, I think they will deliver, but if there are no legit dct solutions I'll switch to 6mt. Ridiculous, over-the-top tuner setups, a la underground racing, heffner, etc have always been so intriguing to me, and this is as close as I'll get to a tt aventador in this lifetime

We have been working together with Dodson for a few months now to become their authorized dealer. We are really excited to sell their products! At the moment, we are performing an installation on the first set for a customer. We will have pictures and more information soon.

+1 I'd like to know this as well.

I could be wrong but I remember hearing the whole job is pretty labor intensive....

I thought it was about the same as changing the clutch in a manual car.
There was a teardown documented in another forum but I don't have the link to hand.
