I heard a rev-match downshift at 1:09. But from what I can hear, it sounds as fast as the 5spd. There were also a couple of "hesitant" shifts (noticeable one at 2:08).

well and thats my issue. its supposed to shift FASTER than our 5 speed. quicker thru each gear. but it really doesnt sound like it. i mean we cant pass judgement till they come out, just an observation for now
