You want to know something really crazy---- I'd expect a beefed up CVT to take over drag racing from ATs, MTs, and DCTs. I think it's a shame that only Nissan is still working on those. With the right programming, those should be excellent for all engines in all aspects if it could handle the power. When those first came out, engineers thought that it would be limited to low power applications. It didn't take long before we saw CVTs behind V6s.
