6 SPEED T-56 MANUAL BOSS 260 (First Drive)
Well, i had a good drive of an XR8 260 with the new 6 speed manual and i cant think of 1 better new feature to add to such a car!! The close ratio 6 speed makes a world of difference and every gear you grab drops the revs by only 500rpm. Simply sensational. I do not think the 0-100kkm/h acceleration will improve much but the 1/4 mile will for sure. Reverse is in an unsual position being top right, next to fifth but gear shift quality and clutch pedal feel transforms the traditonal feel into somthing good.
I strongly recommend this manual box to any enthuiast. Feel free to ask any questions in relation to this thread.
