    If the Boss had the T3160 in the 350 I'd probably still own my Boss. ;)

    My warranty was about to be over in the Boss and I was on the second transmission. First one died at 15k and I think mine lasted longer than most. The stock clutch exploded first and the transmission sychros weren't looking so good. Ford covered it under warranty but I was waiting for it to happen again. For now I have no desire to do anything with the GT350 shifter because I don't have any complaints. I'm just driving the car and enjoying it

    It's a good thing you live so close to Mexico. ;)

    No surprise there but I wonder how close you'd be to a stock GT-R? The GT-R's were tough to hang with on track in my Boss. Not so much in my GT350.

    I think stock they would be about equal. The elevation robbed at least 50hp from the GT350 also.

    Will the new 10 speed 2018 GT be faster than a GT350? Don't know if this has already been posted. Can't seem to find road race comparisons.

    I think they will be close, the big difference is the tires.

    If you were to build a race car today and had the option of using the 18 GT drivetrain with the 10 speed VS the Tremec/VooDoo. What would you choose?

    I have the 10R80 in my 18 Raptor and its a great box. It is heavy but will the fast shifting make up for the weight difference? Would be interested in hearing what forum members think.

    I like manuals for the street and auto/DCT/PDK for the track. Will the GT500 have a 7 speed DCT as rumored? That might be a better option.

    I'm the opposite. Nothing worse than being stuck in traffic with a close ratio gearbox and a low rear end! I like the slushbox way better for that stuff. Used to prefer manual everywhere but I'm too old and too lazy to enjoy that part of it now!

    I'm not at that point just yet, altho, I admit, being in a traffic jam or slow moving traffic, in a manual, is no fun!

    I’m referring to my weekend warrior car not my DD. My daily is an auto.

    See, here is another advantage to living in Nebraska, we seldom get stuck in traffic ha. The manual lives and thrives in the High Plains!!

    Weekend Warriors gotta be manuals! My DD is a Tacoma auto, which Hon seems to be adopting in place of her 6 spd manual BMW.

    Bob, I live 6 miles from work , and it takes me a tedious 6 minutes to get there. My son lives 27 miles from me and even going through a bit of Omaha , it takes me 30 minutes to get there. Taught him ( my son ) to drive on a manual ( 97 Mustang Cobra ) and I learned to drive on a manual ( Ford Fairlane 3 speed on the column ). Man son swears my grandson will learn to drive on a manual too - auto no mouse car not for him!!

    Every place I the US has it's advantages, and ease of travel and cost of living plusses are a couple of areas Nebraska shines in!
