Tell that to F1 drivers. Do some research before you post next time please. Here Ill even help you out a bit... Look into Ferrari, BMW, Porsche and Nissan's new GTR. Look for SMG and DSG.

No human has outshifted a F1 sequential gearbox or even many street machines equipped with these boxes. And no, Im not referring to a "tiptronic" auto.



already did!!

would u race your friends manual if you have a automatic

honda vs honda

manual > automatic

Now where in that quote did you pull out Honda from? Because I sure cant see it. Im just responded to your "Racers = manual" statement, which I am correct about. Not once did I mention myself nor my friends racing cars, and neither did you.

Dare I say... pwnt?

Why would I go and do that? Im just correcting your error in saying all racers have to have manual transmissions.

Racers = manual, mostly
automatic = racers too, not alot

people prefer manual over automatic

I didnt mention any F1 drivers



Edit: auto can be racers too but more people prefer manual

you didnt have to mention F1 drivers because by saying "racers", i assumed you would mean professional drivers, not some punk in a eco car with a fart can thinking his fast. so in the end, you were still wrong. look, your even correcting yourself

Automatic (its easier to drive)


I can drive both but it's a bit$h when your hitting switches. I don't like having to worry about shifting when I hit switches.

That's racing for him. Civics and neons ftw! Lol, I'm not a fan of auto, but it's taking the racing scene slowly. Look at the Evolution X and its TC-SST. It SHIFTS faster and BETTER than any driver beside the 2% pros. As I mentioned earlier, Mercedes, BMW, Ferrari, Lambos, and any luxury brand vehicle come in automatic. Bugatti > All.

Gearbox and miscellaneous

The McLaren F1 has a transverse 6-speed manual gearbox with an AP carbon triple-plate clutch contained in an aluminium housing, both the standard edition and the 'Mclaren F1 LM' has the following gear ratios: 3.23:1, 2.19:1, 1.71:1, 1.39:1, 1.16:1, 0.93:1, with a final drive of 2.37:1.

The LSD (Limited Slip Differential) has a 40% lock.

The McLaren F1 has no flywheel in order to decrease inertia and increase responsiveness of the system, resulting in faster gear changes and better throttle feedback.

We're talking about F1 Racing not the McLaren F1...


The majority of modern Formula One cars use seven-speed semi-automatic gearboxes.
