Excellent explanation to of the trans... Shifting a six speed manual is very cool and fun.I did it for 14 years with my 3 Vipers. Just saying it,should be a option so people that want it can have it.SRT is very capable in making it happen if they wish. This will save the Viper in years to come,esp with a convertible option. Big company CEOs change all the time and thus things change..
