    you sure? i always worked with the school of thought that retarding timing increases cylinder pressure... and the wotbox launch is achieved by retarding the timing right? your explanation makes sense otherwise.

    Combustion stops, so it is not providing constant power. FFS is not hard for tranny.

    It's very different than regular shifting because power barely gets cut off, its constantly giving power. When you shift regularly, you lose boost and power isn't constant cause you let off the gas for that split second. A lot less stress on the tranny.

    if this FFS is implemented as well as it works on my friends srt4 i'll upgrade to rev3 just for this feature alone. not only were the shifts smoother, it felt and sounded like the tranny was thanking us during every shift. haha.

    he went from 11.9-12.1@116-117mph to 11.7@118-120mph consistently. if the results are similar for us i'd totally be happy with this feature.

    You are correct that in most cases adding timing results in higher pressure and therefore more power because we are igniting the fuel closer to TDC but this takes it to the extreme of igniting the fuel well after TDC when the piston is well on it's way down and most of the actual expansion occurs on it's way out of the combustion chamber. This is hard on the exhaust valves, manifold and turbo but of those three you really only see the turbos getting swapped out sooner unless it's a tubular mani which isn't the case here. Oh and I'm hating the new writing system as I always write from my iPhone and it doesn't follow the cursor but rather keeps my screen on the beginning of the post which doesn't allow me to see what I'm typing.
