HERE HERE

good catch here Joe... (missed this myself)

i (we?) are less-than-pleased with the oftentimes non-responsive manual shifter action (as i click down again, and again, with still NO response, or a HUGE drag-delay)

No, that's a definite we; I want my tranny downshifting when I say it should!

I had noticed a 300-700rpm delay in manual upshifts...tough to race like that.The first time Level 10 went inside to look at the trans,they found this little black box with wires in and out.They took a digital picture and had a copy made with no delay system(straight wire)It shifts when I hit it!

Curious,OBD3 is coming out,but not out yet...it is interactive with parts of the car,among other things
He had shown me a download of a cars performance maps/transmission maps that he was adjusting on his lap top for a "royal" customer(this really got my attention) this is 2.5 years ago,not sure about the reference.
They made a decision to sell the mod VB as a whole not a shift box
