The "thud" that most people experience is a Getrag thing, even some FWD and AWD Getrag transmissions do it. Do a search for Getrag thud and you'll get hits for Focus, Supra, Evo, BMW, Challenger, Mustang of course, and more.

With the latest 2018+ iteration of the MT82 it's possible that in making the other changes to the gearset they have reduced the lash in the transmission responsible for the "thud", which is great, but does nothing for the rest of us.

BG syncroshift II in the trans made the biggest difference for me. Sort of cushions the shock a little bit, thuds less overall and when it does not as noticeable.
