[quote="xpression"]i did the ford New Model Introduction training stuff on the BF's the other day. The box uses a different clutch/brake setup so that it doesnt disengage the current gear until the next year is setup ready to accept torque, so absolutly no delays between shifts...

"All gear shifts from 1st to 6th or 6th to 1st are power-on overlapping shifts, that is to say during the shift one of the clutches must continue to transmit the drive at a lower main pressure until the other clutch is ready to accept the input torque"[/quote]

This set up would help greatly in strength as not instant jolt of a clutch lock up and less wear if slow clutch lock up.

I would also think with the computor inteligents of the new box for the driving style and the ability to apply the write amount of throttle with the gearbox not doing the old up shift when easing the throttle for tracksion and changing down again when getting back on the gas.
You could feather the throttle to get maxium acceleration without the box shifting up and down like on pre BF fords.

Typhon with 6 manual trying to feather the throttle and ride the clutch to get it off the line would cause heat on the friction surface's and slippage hence slower ET's.
Plus not sure on ratio difference of the 6 auto and 6 manual but if the auto does have a lower 1st it would help as well.
