That doesn't change anything. You still can't shift as fast as a dual-clutch box which already has the next gear pre-engaged. Hell, you can't shift as fast as a single clutch box that's using hydraulic or electric actuators to move the forks.


You don't need a clutch to shift with a traditional manual for that matter, once moving. Although I wouldn't recommend it...(unless it's a dogbox, of course).


What you need to cure the problem is a return to driving as a romantic thing, a sport, something to be enjoyed. Hard to do with traffic/traffic laws today...

And hard to do with people like you out there, knocking cars that try to get back to driving roots, because they're not fast enough for you.
