I've driven a mini cooper with the CVT trans and I HATE it. It has no feel at all. There are no true gears so you loose the feeling of a nice firm shift and hard acceleration. It's like riding a snowmobile versus a clutch sport quad.

I hope they improved that with the IVT. It's a great idea it just needs to be refined.

Same here. I race MX on my quad and we have three sleds. Just got a Polaris with the 4 stroke turbo in it. It's sick.

I just prefer the feeling of actual gears but you're right, once you get used to it, it can be nice.

I drove an Audi with basically a snowmobile transmission in it. I would stay at like 2300 RPM through the gears but when I got on it it would rev to like 7000 and stay there.
