    I always thought A8 was like the Audi A8 (my last performance car was an Audi S8)

    But it looks like the reference on here is something connected to the challenger?

    It's what Fonzie says when his Hellcat shifts into 8th gear.

    "Aaaaaaaaaa, 8!"

    ...and it's an awesome transmission. I really thought I liked my wet clutch 7 speed that was in my E63. It's kaka compared to the TF8 that's bolted up to the 6.2L

    Shifts are much quicker, but smooth as silk if I am l driving mellow. When in sport or above, its great how the downshifts happen when coming to a stop. The exhaust pops are almost intoxicating.
