: Does it have a clutch?
is it like a racing gearbox?
i would assume, yes
If it is at all like the F1 trans. there is a TON of stuff that can be done to it to make it shift "really really" fast. All ya need is a programmer and possibly new hydraulics.
SAME idea as the F1
:are throttle blips necessary on the SMG?
i think the SMG matches rev, but it is not very good at it
how about straight cut gears, I doubt it but that would be grrreat.
Im still in school graduating next December and i plan on buying an E46 as soon as I get out, it will hit the wallet hard but hey engr. school has to pay off for something... I assume the E46 will have just a plan jane 6 speed.
you are right, from what i hear don't plan on the SMG coming to the US (I wish it was)
