    I just ran the slushbox at a local medium sized course, I have to admit, I'm very surprised at the PAL shifting in the car. It kept me in the right gear 95% of the time, or was fast enough to get me there without hesitation or upsetting the car, vast improvement over the 6L90E language in the CTS-V and a complete character reversal of when it's in touring mode, which is to say, it sucks in touring mode. This trans LOVES to shift fast and hold gears when it's being thrown around. I actually just let it do it's thing all 6 runs which was great given it was a double backing and let me concentrate in not going off course.

    I'm having a bit of an identity crisis at the moment actually, in whether I will want a 6MT in an ATS-V. It was that good.

    Re: Caddy at AutoX

    I ran my ATS 3 weeks ago at a autocross at the NJ Meadowlands, I held my own in D class, it was a fast course with close to 70 MPH, The car is well balanced, trans ,and brakes are excellent, but it is still a big car compared to almost everything else auto crossing. I found the throttle modulation to be the toughest as thelag time can become a problem, the car is also heavy again compared to almost everything out there. Still all in all I had a great time, and managed to beat some lighter and faster cars, the 19 inch wheels with 275, and 245 were a big help. Next event in 2 weeks back at the Meadowlands.

    I've only had mine for a week, but I am an SCCA member and plan on doing quite a few autoxs.
