I know I know its not the same, doesnt auto-blimp the throttle and cut spark for flat footed upshifts and what not, but still could be very cool if you could pull it together for the right price...
Just curious if anyone has any experience on here with any of it. (In a C5 or any other car even. Curious how a dog box would be in general)
And what is the right price for you ?
Realistically, for a proper sequential you're in the $15-20k ballpark.
And sometimes ratio choices are not great.
The Sequential shifter is only out for stick in the box setups so far, and lets face it....unproven as there doesnt seem to be any real feedback out there from users.
Obviously any flat shift or blip strategies ( which are external control features via ecu or whatever ) will work better with a proper dog engagement setup than a synchro shift mech, and to work well need proper controls in place. Again more cost.
As for whether a dog or synchro is better etc.....depends entirely what you're using the car for and how you drive. For a road car that gets driven a lot.....tedious.
Synchros are just nice. Buy a Magnum.
