Allpar's review of new 8 speed transmission
 
Allpar was able to drive the Charger Blacktop with the new 8 speed transmission. It sounds like it is a great transmission.

One thing to note is that with the 8 speed, you also get steering wheel mounted paddle shifters......just one more thing not unique to the SRT line now :(

Anyone know if it has rev matched down shifts, unlike the SRT's.

Yeah, but......

The SRT8 has the + and - signs filled in with black paint, while the V6 uses unpainted impressions.

Damn, for some reason I thought it was a dual clutch auto/manual but it's just another slushbox.......
