In regards to DCT vs. 6MT, I think we all agree it is an advantage, but you and Swamp feel it's not necessarily a huge factor. As he said we simply disagree on how much it plays a role, fair enough.

I've seen plenty of real world runs, 1/4 mile runs, the Vbox data, etc. which to me demonstrates that it is a huge factor, but at the same time I do understand Swamp's feelings on the trap speeds, because I do think a VT625 6MT has yet to do a pass with full traction and if they did the trap speed would go up. But in head to head roll on runs, or 60-130 Vbox pulls, I'm sticking to the evidence so far which cleary shows the DCT is a major advantage over 6MT, just as the PDK is on the 997's. I also agree we should move the discussion to another thread.

How about a "congrats" to ESS on the VT3 build?
