Default 7at transmission

Hi All,
Merry Christmas etc.and greetings from NZ.
OK can anyone point me to a good article on the above transmission,I have a 370z roadster and have owned it from new (2010).
Always had a manual sports before,but drove a demo 370z fitted with this box and was very impressed,and after ten years of ownership I am very happy with my choice.
Have done few track days in it and it has always coped well,and is fun when driven hard..
Anyway would like to understand the working of this transmission.
Thank you .

I agree, the 7AT is a great trans. Definitely get a gauge & cooler on it if you are tracking it. There was a great article I can't seem to find in the review section. Gave a pretty good break down on the 7AT with gear ratio's and all. if I ever find the link, I'll pass it along.

I drive an 10' AT as well and I love it but for a different reason. Most of the time I'm driving in and out of the city in moderate traffic and rarely getting above 25 mph, let alone getting on it. So for me, the sorta wonky 7AT is great and just relaxing when I need it to.

However, with a simple flick of the shifter in manual mode, the car seriously transforms. The amount of omph between manual shifting and auto is night and day.

The FSM (link in sig) will have a lot of info on the 7AT - and all the rest of the 370Z.
