Dogbox :shrug:

They are dogboxes indeed (no synchro's), but the whining noise is from the straight cut gears.

Never met a four banger that didn't sound like complete crap, those included.

But with those cars, sound is not the point.

VERY rare footage of that Ferrari 308, btw.

Lots of fast, loud things.

-a thousand leaves

Its because they use straight cut gears instead of helical cut gears in the trans. thats why normal cars reverse gear whines when u back up because they have straight cut gears in reverse but not all the other ones

EDIT: I didnt see what Meurz said lol
