Well, "sheeple" is the right term, isn't it? Some people think they absolutely "need" it (out of a misconception they picked up from the 70's when cars were on solid rear axles), and others don't...

Yes, you are actually saying just that with the colorful metaphor "peg-legger". You want to call it peg-leg, then I'll call lsd a waste of money. Seems "fair", I'm sure you can agree. The "less...

This is very simple, people. Try it and see what happens. It matters not what Cuda sees in one video and asserts that all auto Challengers must then behave that way.

With Cuda's logic on this,...

"Coming up" vs "coming down", I suspect could introduce different behaviors, for sure.

I also wondered if possibly there is a recognizable pattern of shift-lag behavior if looking at them as planetary sets:

1-2-3, 4-5-6, 7-8

Maybe if the kickdown stays within a single planetary...

The popular figure touted as unemployment rate is otherwise known as u3...meaning a 3 month window. Once you fall out of that window, you become a statistic that "no longer counts". That's why the...

Seems like it is time for more data points to this scenario. Rolling cruise at different speeds, WOT, see how quick the kickdown is. Do a speed where it naturally sits on 3rd, naturally on 4th,...

The missing component is damping. Damping is what dissipates all excitations from devolving into oscillation. The repetitive behavior of wheel hop is an oscillation. Shock absorbers are used to...

All Challengers burnout with 2 black stripes, regardless of the rear axle option. If you paid for lsd, you got ripped off. :p

All I can say for my A5 is that some shifts do take longer than others, but it's never been to a degree or frequency where it would ever be a "problem". For the most part, I put the hammer down, the...

This isn't a manual vs automatic discussion. If you chose to only use the throttle in a manual, you would be forever stuck in neutral...so that leaves you nowhere, altogether.

Any "heads-up" you give the computer will be effectively faster than trying to get it to do something quickly just merely with throttle actuation, imo...even if it means manually pre-staging in 3rd,...

Being in 4th, it may also have been managing the convertor-clutch disengage, in all of that. That may have contributed to some of the lag time. You wouldn't want it to kickdown to 2nd with TCC...

Looks like you are in one (or more) higher gear in the 2nd vid vs. 1st vid...both starting at 30 mph, but rpm is definitely different.

Possibly, there is a longer delay when dropping down from...

If you got the 18" wheels (as opposed to 20"), they'll be lighter + less rotational inertia + slightly smaller tire OD (acts like a small bump in axle ratio).

No doubt...tire traction is a diminishing commodity as you head below 70 deg. That's always the twist, right?

Can't quite unleash it at launch, but oh-boy, when you got the hook...tankless...
