Question Shift Times?

Does anyone know what the shift times are for a JCW with the sport auto transmission? I'm specifically wondering how fast the gears change via the paddle shifters in Sport - manual mode.

I haven't measured mine but it shifts faster than a manual.

My JCW is a 6-speed manual but a co-worker has an automatic in his 2016 Mini S coupe and when he takes off it shifts very quick. I'd have to guess the transmission would shift in around 150mS and maybe quicker though maybe not by much (150mS is pretty darn quick, nearly as quick as the blink of an eye).

150mS is how fast the 8-speed auto in my Hellcat shifts in "street" mode using the paddles and the shifting is super fast. Wow. I have never really driven the car in sport/track mode but if it shifts any quicker it will shift before I pull the paddle....

The sport manual mode definitely shifts faster than the OEM manual. (Factory-published 0 - 60 times bear that out.) I know the sport manual shifts faster than I could in my R53 with a Cravenspeed short shift kit.

It's easy to find shift times for the various iterations of the F1 transmission equipped in different Ferraris; I only wish is it was that easy to find the same info for our MINIs.
