Is it just me or does the svtf shift alot smoother when you shift hard , because when im granny shifting it seems to clunk in gears but when im shifting fast it seems to go in alot smoother ..... maybe its just me but the more force i use the easier it is ?

When you shift hard the transmission has a greater chance to rev-match, this takes the synchros out of the equation and makes engagement quicker.

When I had a trans that shifted smooth, I noticed that it did shift smoother when power shifting.
