  • Engineering Explained - How The 2020 Corvette Achieves Its Fastest 0-60 Ever

    If you are interested in automotive engineering, as I am, I highly recommend this video.

        Yeah, the dude has some great videos. And I just love quantification!

        By the way, when Jason talks about the physics of the DCT and states it shifts in 100ms, that is three to four times quicker than the blink of a human eye, which is normally 300-400ms.

          I've been trying to find accurate shift times for the best DCTs I've driven, my M3 and Porsche's PDK for comparison. If anyone runs across shift speed up and down, share. I know Tadge said the 8 speed auto was comparable to PDK in the C7 but the reality was that on upshifts only, there was a quite a difference between up and down.
