Dear god I'm slippin' up here! Thanks for the correction. I could've sworn I watched a video review of the RS with paddle shifters! Ughhhh... sorry. I guess the dry dual clutch has its limitations then. That would explain why VW uses the wet dual clutch system on the GTI/R32. Well I still hope it's a future possibility. I'm just a little bummed.

I know it's definitely possible. If other manufacturers can get faster cars produced with a dual clutch... it's definitely possible. But I guess Ford is new to the dual clutch game. Okay so I should just be patient. But I don't like the way that guy was quoted. There are some of us who prefer a dual clutch and are willing to pay extra for it. It should be an option at least.
