I got a replacement clutch pack and seals over a thousand miles ago and it's been better than the first day I got it. They performed some kind of new adaptive clutch engagement; the previous statements of "you can't feather the throttle" (myself included) have been largely incorrect, now. The car performs exactly like you want it to. Roll the accelerator, holds gear until redline shift. Drop the throttle, stomp to 40%, it downshifts, roll accelerator, redline shift. If you stomp to about 60-70% I've gotten a few successful 2 downshift and I dont ever remember being able to do this in a conventional AT.

I'm really glad you were able to get that handled, Marine. I remember reading your posts around the forum.
