I run my x-race as a daily driver. It's awesome but you have to get use to the shifting. It does shift firmer but not neck snapping. My only complaint is when you have the cruise set and tap the brake to disengage it seems to jerk more than I like. I actually just speed up a little now and turn the cruise off with the switch to avoid the jerking.

^^^^ Ditto - Plus TONS of smoke and diminished tire longetivity!

I don't think mine shifts bad at all on my 07 unless you're holding it to the floor.

I just wanted to see what it would act like since I normally have to have it on x-street since I'm normally towing the race trailer.. I went ahead and changed it to the x race tune so far it is fun
