    Based on how few Trinity owners modded their engines in any significant way and the expence associated with repairing that engine most will likely be left stock (not that 760 hp is something to sneeze at). It's going to be a phenomenal car all around regardless I would take it over the Camaro any day. Something tells me it will only be offered with the DCT gearbox .

    You can't have too many stickers.

    In order to move a fatty you need torque, lots of it. The fact that it may favor the higher end of the rpm scale (for a FI engine anyway) is a great thing for a track with turns though too.

    Too much torque down low just spins the tires. Having said that we have no idea if it’s enough torque for slicks at the drags or 50mph pulls vs Z06’s/991TS or pulling off the 35mph turn 11 at Sonoma.

    My largest concern is the longevity of the DCT. Ford doesn't have the best track record for specifying transmission components that aren't nearly glass. They have had a few solid contenders, but most have been a bit on the fragile side.

    Maybe this is the reason for the low torque spec (625 lb.-ft)?

    TR-9007 DCT Input Torque 664 lb-ft

    Tremec DCT guts are pretty stout, though slicks do have a way of finding weak spots in everything.

    C8 'vette will get the same from Tremec, just a year or so later.

    Wasn't there talk about GM going with a ZF DCT rather than a Tremec DCT in the C8?

    It still all depends on the components that the motor company specifies. Not all T-56, 6 speeds are the same, as an example.

    Trust me, the power is managed across the entire spectrum via control modules for every subsystem. When torque can be used, it gets used. When it isn't available, you sense heft. I'd rather have torque on tap than not.

    Ever thought the tq was reduced to keep from tearing up the DCT?

    I do see your point here, and especially after owning a 350 with low tq output it could feel similar until a certain rpm starts moving the car faster. But Ford really needs to release some proof of this thing both road course # and 1/4 mile #s to ease the current expectations it “should” beat this or that car

    Depends. With Computer controled transmission it can be tamed. I believe the reason for the low tq numbers is to keep from destroying the DCT.

    GT500 is getting the TR-9070, but I haven't seen an updated spec for it lately. @Tob have you?

    I can dig that. I also appreciate changing the amount of nanny intervention at the press of a button.

    I've always said I want to control if I live or die, not the car deciding for me.

    You wont get proper comparisons until Randy P gets them and does his same day hot laps
