I drove it pretty hard.. the tiptronics got great reviews at the time, and in 2002 everyone had to have one.. should've bought the vr6 manual

i know nothing about cars but I will never own a fucking tiptronic. Wow, you get to change gears, but you don't get clutch control, which is the whole point of a manual - more control. Seems like a silly gimmick to me.

my saab has tiptronic. i almost never use it. it's kind of fun, as a novelty. kind of like birks are stylish :P

I just test drove an impreza last weekend and it had tiptronic paddles. Was fun to drive because it was reminiscent of a Ferrari biggrin.gif

But I think the shifters has a purpose besides being gimmicky. Doesn't it preserve the brakes since you can decelerate by shifting down?(instead of braking)

I don't know much about engines/transmissions redface.gif

I mean, you can do that in any car by letting off the gas earlier.

Haha I know but this slows it down much faster...and you feel it

No, snow is right.


The trade-off is that you may put more wear on your torque converter or whatever you have, which is probably more expensive than brake pads.


Or on a manual it's the same argument with clutch vs. brake pads.


If you don't suck at driving, with a manual you can rev match your downshifts and that eliminates this problem. And on some very high-end cars, the new automatics will rev-match your downshifts for you, which does basically the same thing. So if you've got one of those going for you, then it's absolutely useful in slowing down.

but still lacking that actual control you have with a manual. Sure, the machine might be able to rev match, but that's not going to be perfectly appropriate for every situation, and even if it were, you lack that actual feeling of control.
post #74114 of 117666
shut the fuck up about cars
post #74115 of 117666
What control do you think you lack? Unless you count slipping the clutch...

We're talking about transmissions now.
