Do you ever miss shifting gears the old fashion way?
This.Only on the street. On track, shifting in mid-corner with just a click without upsetting the chassis is FRICKIN' AWESOME!!!
lol! I love this analogy. There are purists in every arena... It is all personal - like was stated on another forum - boxers or briefs. Both offer a similar function with drastically different methods.Not at all. I know that the dual clutch system can shift much faster and more efficiently than I could ever hope to do. At the end of the day, for me, it's all about what works best. Same reason I don't miss getting up and changing channels on the TV myself (yes, I know I am showing my age here) - the remote control is faster, easier and works better...
^^ Well said.Naw, that is a poor analogy. Sifting a manual gearbox is inherently a fun and entertaining thing to do for most people. Getting up to manually change a TV channel instead of using the remote is a fun and entertaining thing to do for virtually no one. That analogy would be good for eliminating a nuisance, which sifting a manual transmission certainly is not for most sports car drivers.
