I tend to shift with gas pressure sometimes its rough (I think thats a miss shift)
and ecu correcting the miss shift,. not sure though.

I think its better for TC-SST if you let off the gas before shifts.

I like it. The shifts are smooth yet aggressive. The next gear is always ready for you...

Ive noticed that when engaging the paddle shifters without pushing the shiftnob over the tranny still trys to shift for you... kind of irritating but not a big deal.

Default Transmission and shift quality

I think the SST is a great transmission and makes the car. I don't think the Ralliart would be much of a car without it to be honest. The SST transmission does not like to shift when your going somewhat slow, 25 MPH and under. Even with that said, it is an amazing transmission. When you get on it, you don't lose power between gear changes because it switches gears lightning quick. I do think the shifts are quite smooth.

Smooth when I want it that way and fast when I want it fast.

I agree with Ralliart Guy, the SST makes the car. To find this kind of technology in a car in this price range is amazing. That being said, I wish it had a setting in between regular and sport. Something that doesn't always try to get to 6th gear, but doesn't have to be at 4500rpm to up shift. I think the optimum would be up shifts at 3500rpm, down shifts at 2200rpm. rev matching enabled on every down shift. 6th gear only if it get's above 4000 rpm.

not really, first you have to build up all the boost that you lost when you left off the gas, which you didn't have to do, notice the difference when you let off,... you feel a drop in performance, but if u keep your foot on the gas and shift, like you supposed to its the same power through out the gears.. so its not worth it to let off the gas, besides its not a manual where you have to let off the gas and disengage the clutch and reengage, our gearbox is more automatic then it is manual.. i mean really the concept of the trans is similar to any car that has a sporttronic mode in, meaning the + - that allow you to change gears when ever you wont. reminds me of my 08 eclipse thou it was slower..
