The biggest downside is your warranty going bye-bye.

TM is there for longevity of the drivetrain components. Everything from trans internals to DS to axles to gears tc.

Think of it like this. Without any TM in the equation it is like having all of the "shock" from dumping the clutch in a manual, happening on every shift....
