    Looks more like speedo calibration than transmission.

    could this transmission be a DCT other than the 7DCL750?

    I hope so..... at least a beefed up version of that gearbox (Hell, the GT's 7DCL750 can withstand up to 750Nm of torque which is barely 553lb-ft of torque and that's making me have a hard time of keeping my hopes up :shrug: )

    I know it has to be a beefed up version, if its going to have more torque than that, which it should.
    I was thinking in the 680T range. Thats one hell of a 'beef up', and on another forum one of the guys in the know said that the 7DCL750 won't be in any other ford vehicle, other than the GT, so that leads me to believe IF it is a DCT transmission, its gonna be a totally renamed version, maybe 7DCL1000 ;)
    Does anyone know of any Getrag DCT's that can handle 700T?

    Those ratings are based on a vehicle with higher gross weight than this Mustang will have. Usually based on a 10k lb GVWR. So in a car that weighs 3100 or 3900 lbs, its plenty.

    A fella that knows what the 2019 GT500 is, mentioned that the Ford GT transmission wont be in any other Ford car. So, what could be the other possible DCT to handle, say 700T?

    The GT uses a 7DCL750, so a 7DCL700 would mean the 750 is still only used in the GT. And again, a rating of 700 Nm on a 10k GVWR vehicle translates to a lot more on a 4k GVWR Mustang.

    Sounds like a 700 would work then, but why would the GT use a 750 and not a 700? I'll do some googling and see what the differences are with the 700 vs 750, may only be torque rating? If this GT500 is in fact going to be a track car, I'd think it would want something thats going to take abuse and keep on coming back for more, especially with a significant torque increase over the GT. Maybe the GT500 won't be for the track. Hmmm Its confusing, but maybe I'll just sit back and wait for the unveiling ;)

    The 750 is their transaxle offering. The 700 is their longitudinal rear wheel drive trans.

    Looks like the 7DCI700 weight is around 180 lbs. Not extremely terrible, considering the tr3160 is 121 lbs. Only a 60 lb gain there!!! I'm not liking the extra 150+ lbs of supercharger and coolers. Hopefully CF is used in more than a few locations.
    I was wondering why the vid, at post 1, the car was rolling back before taking off, thinking it was a manual, but realize that DCT's do the same thing unless there is auto braking applied after brake is let off. This may not have been added yet, or that was a manual car.

    So about 200 extra pounds to a 350Rs 3710.

    Add brakes and larger 20” wheels, I’m thinking with some carbon lightweighing we will be right on 3900-3950.

    That’s being conservative. I can see a 4000 in there.

    I hoping ford has an ace up it’s sleeve cause I don’t see them using a DCT and huge carbon ceramic brakes for a car that people think is too heavy to hustle around a track and feel good doing it. Sure those items are going to bennifit a heavier car but why make a pig go fast in twisties if it’s really just a pig.
    If they can balance it well at sub 3900, I think they will have a real winner here.

    Fiber wheels, driveshaft, grille opening reinforcement, and Magna/BASF subframes would go a long way here.

    Yes and they're certainly going to focus on taking weight out.

    Why do we assume it is a track car? Or what track are we talking about? GT and GT350(R) is track / twisty. GT500 is typically 1/4 mile / straight line speed. Also previous GT500 eclipsed 200 MPH stock - not sure why media is ogling over that number. And it did it with 662 HP or there about.

    Do you know if the weight removal will be focused on the front end to offset the SC weight?

    I know what it is, I had one.
    the last GT500 had a track pack option and Lots of people track/ed it.
    last gt500 touted 200mph but it was barely achievable, in fact try to find someone on the internet of a stock 2013/14 going 200. I looked for 2 years 2013 to 2015 and there wasn't a soul that got there stock. ford claimed it and they probably did it in a foreign country with miles of realistate and perfect conditions. this one will do it and we will see video of it within a couple weeks after they hit dealers.

    the GT500 will be a track car because that's who their competition is, the zl1 and the zl1 l1e. if ford went after demon we wouldn't be seeing what were seeing so far. you don't need huge brakes for on street/strip road ripping, nor a DCT transmission but that's what's coming.

    If it has a drag strip mode it will hopefully be a beast on the strip as well as the track.

    This kind, with a bit of boulevard bruiser thrown in.

    The 350 even has drag mode.
    I'm sure the GT500 will do very well on the strip .
