I think you can still order/request a 275 soft shift but your tranny isn't going to survive as long. I know it's been made in the past for some customers. Send Spartan or Nutty a message or email and check.

I've got the soft shift.
After a few days, I wasn't comfortable with it.
I just switched back to the V2 regular shift today. The soft shift is fine, but I found it getting mushy as tiime wore on, and you do NOT want to bury your foot into it with that soft program.

I'm having Nutty work up something for me that has a nice firm shift without the jolts. I guess on a scale of 1 to 5, the V2 being 5 where the V3 is a 1, I am hoping for a 4. Just a smidge off the top, and I'll be happy.
Also on further review, the V2 has a ton more snap to it than the V3. I would say the mid range is even, but it isn't nearly as fun to drive.
