A bastard horse is like 2x a regular horse ...
And here I thought the conversion factor for BH's to, as the chubby kid says, "herspers, was BH's squared times the number of siblings. :-)

Anyone else think the 1-2 shift didnt sound very DCT like? the 2-3 sounded like i expected. maybe traction control hitting on the 1-2?

Thomas: I noted that as well and I wonder if The Mayor kept his finger on the paddle too long as I THINK he was paddle shifting during the entire clip (and it wasn't an "auto" shift,) but I could be wrong.

Dang, that guy was nailing those paddle shifts! Seriously, I understand why some guys want/prefer the DCT, but if were talking about ultimate performance why not just put the dial on D and let the computer do the rest:question:

I wonder the same... The only Auto ive had in years (my 2013 FRS) was amazing in drive with sport mode on. It would up shift perfectly and down shift perfectly. good enough for me to get within 9/10ths of Randy lap time my car being stock with a Catback only. I dont think the Auto trans in that car is close to todays much less a DCT. so im surprised they dont leave it in D

I'm not even mad that someone in mexico is out there driving one. Chances are an owner in the US bought one and parked it in the garage. Probably gonna put 5 miles on it and just let it be a garage queen. There is no way in hell someone in the US hasnt gotten their gt500 already.

Not sure what that means but looking forward to running against your GT 500 in the spring at Cecil if you receive it by then! If you dont have your GT 500 by then I'm sure my my wife will be ok letting you race her paddle shifting outback against my manual 5.slow! Seriously guys it's all in fun, sometimes we seem to miss that on this forum/internet.
