    I posted a question on Facebook asking if there would be an automatic clutch instead of a manual clutch and I got the following response.

    "We're using a standard automotive five speed manual transmission with a physical clutch pedal."

    I was really worried it would be automatic clutch like what has been discussed. I like having the control of the full manual setup.;)

    I guess it depends upon what option you chose, right?
    A manual will have a physical clutch pedal. An 'automatic', or AMT will have an automatic clutch.
    Am I wrong?

    Let's just keep this between us. I wouldn't want to ruin a perfect record of being imperfect.

    I humbly apologize Sir. I offer a moment of silence for the lost beer, may it flow sweet and cold in Heaven...
