paddle shift controls Q&A Review

Why have car companies stopped making manual/stick shift vehicles?

They haven’t entirely, but your question is valid. The short answer is efficiency. Torque-converter automatics are equal to or better than conventional manual transmissions, and dual-clutch autos and CVTs are substantially more efficient. Auto makers are slaves to fuel economy standards, especially on smaller cars, because their very lives depend on it to meet CAFE (or similar) standards while selling highly profitable trucks and SUVs and CUVs. These big, heavy, thirst behemoths need small, frugal cars in the corporate fleet to offset more profitable cars and avoid penalties for not meeting the standards. Then there’s the fact that the “take-rate” on standards is and has been low for a long time. As we urbanize more and more, slogging through traffic with a clutch can be really difficult. I know, because my commuter car is a manual, and traffic jams are a real challenge not only for my left leg but also for my concentration on throttle control, etc. The fact that many can’t drive a manual is more an outgrowth of these facts of life than the other way around. If mom and dad don’t have a 5-speed in the driveway, the kid won’t be learning how to use one. So it goes. The good news is that, at least for now, sporty and sports cars still offer manual transmissions. A dual-clutch auto (DCA) may, very likely, dust the manual on acceleration, and a paddle-shifted DCA offers all the control of a manual and a clutch, but some people can’t live without heel-toe brake and throttle control. But for every Miata and BRZ out there with a hot-shoe practicing her heel-toe, there’s a guy in a Porsche with a PDK blowing her doors off. Sadly, the autos are just better. Buggy whips have fallen out of favor, too.

What are the aims of the Formula 1 championships?

Depends on how you look at it. For the teams, to make money and market their manufacturers brand and sponsors. Technological development which eventually trickles down to passenger cars, like paddle shifting. This includes engineering development of manufacturing and materials. To maintain, that F1 is the most technologically advance auto racing series in the world. It certainly not about improving the quality of racing for the fans. Which I am ok with. Look at the artificial racing of NASCAR. The rules are so control the cars are basically spec racing. Great for the fans, but not for technological development.

Which variant of Honda City Petrol is valuable?

The top end VX variant is the most valuable as it holds great features like sunroof, CVT gearbox with paddle shifts, cruise control etc.

What precautions should I take when paddle shifting my car?

You really don't have to worry about anything, the computer controls the shifting so even if you accidentally try to put it in too low of a gear, the computer won't do it in order to protect the engine. Likewise if you leave it in a lower gear too long before upshifting; the computer will upshift for you. So basically, you can drive it like you would a manual except you don't have to worry about over revving.

What is a paddle shift in automatic cars?

Paddle shifts ,are a very ergonomic and easy way for shifting gears manually in automatic transmission / AMTs/ CVT/ DSG etc. In normal automatics, for shifting gears manually u need to put it into manual and then shift gears using +&- by pressing the gear lever forward or backward. But if u have paddle shifters, the +&- are located behind the steering wheel On two stalks one on either side of the steering wheel. (-) on the left stalk (- paddle) and (+) on the right stalk (+ paddle) . Now no need to use the gear lever for shifting. You have all the control on your hand which makes it more easy making quick overtakes.

Should cars with automatic transmissions start off in the D gear or the L/1st gear?

It doesn’t matter. Both will engage the first gear and you’ll be on your way. For your personal gratification (and intensify your control over your car) you can go through the gears manually. Most modern cars now have paddle shifts or sequential sticks ( + and - next to the usual P R D). These effectively let you choose your gears as you please in a more “racey” way (without destroying the car… self-preservation). N.B: if you shift late you will increase your fuel consumption, but it will also increase the size of your smile on your face. :) Good Luck

Why cant every car have Flappy paddle gears are they more expensive?

Paddle shifts have two major drawbacks: It adds additional hardware to the steering column, which adds additional expense They occupy space where turn signal, high beam, and windshield wiper controls are typically located. This space either gets cluttered up, making it more difficult to operate those controls, or those controls have to be relocated. On track-oriented sports cars, having paddle shifters is a huge advantage, and the ergonomics of turn signal or wiper operation is a secondary concern. Many paddle shift equipped sports cars have notoriously difficult or confusing controls for signals/wipers. On a commuter car, the signals and wipers are a higher priority and so manufacturers opt for a traditional control layout. However, many cars with automatic or CVT gearboxes do have a manual shift mode. In addition to the PRNDL options on the transmission lever, many have a side notch marked +/- so that when you push the lever from Drive into that notch, you get manual shift control by pushing the lever + to upshift and - to downshift. You get the same functionality as paddle shifters without compromising the ergonomics of the signal/wiper controls.

Why do people like paddle shifters? Are there any true sports car fans or pro (long-time) race car drivers out there like them?

I started racing over 40 years ago, so I’m probably what you’d consider a long-time race car driver, and yes, I’m a pro currently racing in the Pirelli World Challenge and in IMSA. For a street car, they’re really unnecessary. For a pure race car, they’re imperative. When I’m racing, I want every advantage I can get. Faster shifts could be the difference between winning or being a thousandth of a second back resulting in the second step of the podium. Not all classes allow paddle shifters. Some require it. The flip side of the coin is it’s something else to break. If the computer can’t shift, the car won’t be able to perform. It might even be stuck in neutral so it goes nowhere. With a manual shifter, there’s less to go wrong, not that it can’t happen though. My street car is a BMW M2, and it’s a manual. I ordered it that way. I drive it on track, and I still love it. It might be a tenth or two slower on track than the paddle shift version, but there’s a great feeling of control having the 6-speed manual. That level of control is especially notable on the street. I select the gear I want at the time I want. The computer doesn’t see the traffic I do. It can’t make the decisions I do based on my awareness of the situation. I often drive through my neighborhood at 25 or 30 mph in 6th gear. To get the paddle shift to do that I’d end up fighting with it to get it to stay there. I can also shift from first to third to sixth, completely skipping the other gears, and end up using less fuel than the paddle shift does. Maybe I want to accelerate on the highway and stay in the gear I choose because the rate and gear I choose is better for the traffic condition, resulting in less shifting. There are lots of reasons I don’t want to shift. Also, sitting in traffic is way better with a manual. If the rush hour traffic comes to a dead stop, I shift to neutral and take my feet off the pedals (assuming I’m not on a hill). I could shift an automatic paddle shift car to neutral, but the lack of constant contact with the transmission selector doesn’t bring that option to mind, and it’s slightly more cumbersome to do so on many cars. I like being more engaged with my operation of the car on the street. But in a race, I’m 100% engaged already, and having a paddle shift is one less thing I need to use my brain for. In a race, I’d prefer the paddles because they’re faster at shifting, have better torque control so I can shift up or down mid-corner, and often have a launch control so I can have a better start in a standing start race. Paddles are just a tool, and when applied and used appropriately, they’re great. They can give a mundane car on the street a sportier feeling, like my girlfriend’s X3, but beyond that they’re really not necessary.
