- Genesis Model Type
- Genesis G70
Was there a reason why HGK developed their own 8-speed instead of using the ZF?Things to consider:
1) The Supra is somewhere between 400 and 600 lb lighter depending on G70 spec.
2) The ZF8 is the single best transmission on the market, and while ours is good, theirs simply shifts quicker.
3) Like most BMW engines, I strongly suspect the 335 hp rating on the B58 in that car is bull**** and the car in fact makes more.
With a clean launch I'm not surprised to see that figure.
Also is it different than the FWD based 8-speed on the Sorento, Sante Fe, and etc. which was supposedly derived from the Cadenza?
