I think the 6MT ASS experience is significantly different than for the 8AT.
On the 8AT, it's like the engine is being stopped with the trans still engaged; the feeling reminds me of a MT clutch stall.
You would think that the car would shift to neutral before stopping the engine and re-engage after restarting.
