If you are happy I'm happy
Not many M6's which could be good for you and if they'll haggle otherwise it's up to you and you should get what makes you feel warm and fuzzy.
Unless your car is going to live at the strip & your knees are good, I think you'll have much more fun in a manual car... IMO, those paddles on the A8 will get old compared to grinding out your own gears....
Tammie was whipping her hellcat proud of her
My knees say A8
Your going to be very happy with the M6. Very smooth shifting and the rear gearing makes it very functional. The rear gearing in my 14 SRT8 had me shifting out of 1st gear a lot more often and sooner. Congrats!
i vote for the A8 and 2016
Congrats! If you like grabbn gears I think your gonna have so much fun!
I ordered the M6 from the start and love it..........
at the track last week the guys who were new to racing struggled to get into the 11's.....some were 13's , 14's
i like my A8-it was nice to go to a track w/ no experience at all and run a 11.6 1st try w/ 0 extra effort.......unless you have lots of manual experience your not going to get that......id be in the 13's if i had a m6
Congrats on the order!
Might have them look and see if the sunroof is available.
In all fairness the A8 is probably easier to run at the track, but I really don't have much intention of running my M6 at the track much, I would probably get embarrassed by a Neon...LOL
I will take rowing thru the gears all day over a bit faster at the strip. If I want to go fast I will build another race car. I should be able to turn some good times in the M6, not the A8 kind of numbers but respectable.
I had a 4 speed in my 70 Cuda, I changed it out and put in a 727 with reverse full manual valve body and high stall converter. I had a Cheetah shifter and a trans brake. It was so fast I could not even hook up on the street. The next season switched it back to a stick. ( went with the Richmond) 6 speed with short throw shifter. The car was more fun to drive and just about as fast. So make a long story short, I had the same exact car with a taste of both the Auto and manual trans. I choose the manual in the 70 and M6 in the Hellcat.
You said it
You said it so well, there is nothing like driving a high power car with a manual shift, you actually feel the car and know it so well.. It's just a great driving experience, and I must say this shifts so much smoother and quicker than my 2010 SRT-8 Challenger
