Yep, AMG is way behind, porsche/audi has DSG, lambo has e-gear, ferraris has F1, BMW has SMG, and MB has the traditional slush box, really sad, IMO. I guess they don't think MB drivers cares for fast shifts.Hey guys... anyone know of anything new coming down the line for AMG transmissions?
I had heard of a DSG type tranny being developed - maybe AMG has seen the light
Even those aren't that good, heard they have just a little bit better software, MB needs the real thing.I hope they do, the SLK owners have been demanding faster shifts ever since. The Fastest setup they have got are on the CLK63 BS and SLR 722.
It isn't that bad of an engine. With some simple mods, it could put out 400hp (ala Black Series).The 722 uses the 5 Spd box to get the fastest shifts it can.
I wouldn't expect to see anything for the 55 engine, its making its way toward the exit so i don't see any reason for AMG to develop a box for it.
The 63/5 is another matter altogether.
How did you mod the sofware?I've not been following much of the facelift stuff to be honest but i know the steering geometry has been changed slightly so i guess your referring to the 171 with the gearbox comment also mate.
10% faster is probably what i have achieved its all just software and software lag, simple enough to work with.
Okay, understand. I haven't noticed a problem, except under heavy excelleration at higher speeds, you can really "feel" the transmission go to the next gear (sort of a jerk?). But still, AMG still shifts faster than almost everyone with a manual, so I am happy!!!!Not sure i understand mate?
I copied it off of the controller onto DAS then onto my machine, modded it and put it back onto the controller.
