The A6 does the same thing and post "Shift Denied" on a downshift that would impact redline, however I think the speed showing in the lower left is the actual (dynamic) speed not speed required for downshift. Not certain, but it looks like that when you watch it full screen on U Tube.Wow, thanks, John! It seems to be the case that if you try to switch down a gear, but that lower gear would put you over redline, that the transmission refuses the shift and shows in the lower left corner the speed to which you must slow down before the shift will be accepted. That is really cool!
I wonder if it does the same for the lower redline at 4000 RPMs during break-in. I doubt it, but I wonder nevertheless.
According to what I've read simply going into track mode does not get the trans into race mode. It needs to sense rapid acceleration followed by high braking followed by more WOT acceleration before it switches to its fastest program. Not sure if this is 100% true but I've read it in more than one place. Also, the adaptive learning can cause slower response if the bulk of the cars use is relaxed driving.Not quite as quick as I was expecting. There still appeared to be a slight lag in up shifts from the time the paddle was hit. Oh well, it'll still be a blast.
Ah, yes, after watching it again, I now see that you are correct. I missed that when I watched it previously.The A6 does the same thing and post "Shift Denied" on a downshift that would impact redline, however I think the speed showing in the lower left is the actual (dynamic) speed not speed required for downshift.

At the NCM, a gentleman was picking up his C7. I was standing next to the new owner and the NCM rep. The rep explained that the C7's computer would prevent rev's over 4k during break-in. Based on what I am reading here, I believe the rep was mistaken?Rodney, excellent question. They did not built in a "preventer" to prevent someone going over redline while accelerating during the break in period (all tranny's), but maybe?
thanks for the clarification!Yes he is my car has 200 miles on it and you can rev it as high as you want.
