Some turbo motors are great, but I still heavily prefer a manual N/A car and they are not going to be around much more. Turbo motors will be around for quite a while and with the exception for the few I truly like, they are largely boring and sound bad.
I also have my name down on a GT4 RS because as much as I enjoy manual, PDK really shows you what the pinnacle and epitome of a dual clutch is and really donít care much for the ZF8 that is proliferating every car. Nothing special about it if youíve driven a good dual clutch.

Of course. But I'm also fully aware I'm no pro...so whatever a PDK cuts off from my PR isn't nowhere near what a Pro's PR will be, and I've fully accepted that. If anything, I think throwing in manuals back into Pro racing would actually make things that much more interesting to see whose able to not only manage tires and gas, but whose capable of getting their heel-toe right into each corner, every single lap. I think that'd make for more exciting racing.
