love car talk except saab, tiptronic and korean car talk

135 is butt ass ugly

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.

shut the fuck up about cars
post #74123 of 117677
What control do you think you lack? Unless you count slipping the clutch...

We're talking about transmissions now.

This has been a bleak 24 hours for this thread.

Should we go back to talk about the cat's butt?

The worst thing about tiptronic is the half-second delay in the shifting. I;m not sure if DSG is any better, but I would hope.

Porsches PDK is almost instant, best dual clutch in the business not in a super car. BMWs SMG is pretty good too. Audis S-Tronic is decent, much better than their R-Tronic so I am surprised they are barely putting it on the R8 in 2013.

shut the fuck up and talk about polos
