Why is that F1 uses sequential manual transmissions?Hey, relax. You're making it sound like manual doesn't exist in America and no Americans knows how to drive manual. Your statement was very insulting to a lot of people that is why they are replying.
So that you know, I started driving when I was 17, I learn in a manual, and only drove manual until I was 28. In those 11 years, I've own about 4 different manual cars and went auto crossing on weekends. I have essentially mastered the heal toe. From age 28 to about 10 years ago, I always had a manual car in addition to an automatic.
I don't know why you go around making assumptions about the manual car culture in America. Or if I personally ever drove manual. Do you know what happens when you ass-u-me?
Now about your point on manual car feels:
1) No one ever said anything against what you said. The only thing I and other have said is the comparison of DCT vs manual. Manual cannot perform as well as DCT, and it never will (period), (full stop) (scientific fact).
2) No one ever compared a manual with automatic. We are talking about DCT vs. Manual.
3) By you explaining why manual is fun and why it has the X factor (as if only Europeans know and Americans can't possibly know), you are confirming my comparison as to why people prefer tubes. And by me saying why people prefer tubes makes me the first person to say on this thread, that manual, like tubes, has the X factor.
Yes, but remember people like the sound of vinyl records to - so this preamp might be prefered in a setup with a very clean poweramp .Funny how some people embrace older inferior technology as superior. At some point I am sure someone will claim Edison cylinder records are the way to go. Probably a "warmer" sound.
Sorry to kind of disagree here, but to me, the music of any genre played on any source is far more than any hobby and I reckon I'd be all but 'dead' without it! The gear-tinkering is the hobby but that never ever overrides the music for me, which I can enjoy on a set of select £13 in-ear phones fed by an Apple Dongle. Having said that, a good pair of BIG speakers helps one to 'feel' the music physically and I still rue the day when I had to downsize the boxes 'cos our room wasn't big enough.
Do you typically drive race cars on the road?It's obvious. Don't take it as an offense, but only those who have always driven automatic cars don't understand the total difference in feeling with a manual gearbox car. Driving is not only changing from one gear to another in the shortest possible time on a straight line, it is also being able to feel and fully manage the relationship with the engine, having the clutch under your foot and being able to control the rpm and how it affects traction, climbing a series of tight hairpin bends and managing braking and re-acceleration just and exactly as YOU want, using engine braking without breaking down the car and without a sophisticated electronic card having to do it for you. Using a manual gearbox is the essence of sporty driving, even if it doesn't perform as well as a sports automatic, but this is difficult for those who have only ever used an automatic gearbox to understand. (it's also incredibly funnier)
Please see post #160.Why is that F1 uses sequential manual transmissions?
Could it be that they are more efficient, weigh less and are faster than DCT?
Probably a stupid question but do F1 cars have a reverse gear?Please see post #160.
All F1 cars' transmission are multi-clutch. The key is that they have clutches like any manual, the only difference is that the manual shifting is automated without a pedal.
Tubes are a choice VS transistor's.Yes, it's a mandatory function actually stipulated by the FIA.
Is this now a car thread?
Edison cylinder records have nowhere near the sound stage of a conch shell held up to the ear.Funny how some people embrace older inferior technology as superior. At some point I am sure someone will claim Edison cylinder records are the way to go. Probably a "warmer" sound.
Agree to disagree I guess.Please see post #160.
All F1 cars' transmission are multi-clutch.
Every on this article is what I said, there is ZERO contradiction.Agree to disagree I guess.
If you are curious...
Except for this part I guessEvery on this article is what I said, there is ZERO contradiction.
How so? Can you take a screenshot of what I said that contradicted this part?Except for this part I guess
Do F1 Cars Have Clutches?F1 cars do have clutches. It is a single clutch, usually made out of carbon. The whole thing weighs about 1.5 kg, with a normal clutch system weighing upwards of 50 kg in some cases. Weight saving is critical in F1, where there is so much performance to be gained by simply cutting down the weight.
Ah, I read it again. Ok, so the F1 have one clutch and not multi clutch. That is indeed a big discrepancy.Did already my friend, have a great night.
The last word is yours.
