I am not worried about the performace part. Mash the gas & I get my performance.

I'm looking for input on how to make the SMG trans enjoyable during normal driving.

I don't mash the gas on my cars every time I get behind the wheel. I also don't rev to 5k RPM every time either. I know how to get the performance out of them This is about driving like a normal person.
