8 speeds is ridiculous. I'm a hater of trannies with too many gears in them. 4 speeds is plenty for an automatic. 5 at the absolute most. I see no useful need for 8 speeds, the transmission would constantly be shifting and wearing out.
Can you imagine the rebuild cost on one of those? Is it a 4 speed auto with a Gear Vendors splitter bolted on the back? Or some superfantastic true 8 speed inside?
