paddle shift sti Q&A Review

Automatic or manual and why some people really dislike automatic transmission?

I have two vehicles, a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and a 2003 Mazda Miata. The Silverado has a 6-speed automatic transmission, while the Miata has a 5-speed manual transmission. In the early days of automatic transmissions, manual transmissions had several advantages. They were often cheaper to purchase, more reliable, and frequently produced better fuel economy than their automatic counterparts. They also were relatively lightweight, and could handle higher horsepower than automatic transmissions, in the early days. These characteristics made them suitable for use in sports cars and performance-oriented vehicles. Additionally, early automatic transmissions shifted slowly, and were relatively inefficient, causing slower acceleration and limited top speeds. As technology improved, automatic transmissions got better. Lock-up torque converters became commonplace, and companies were able to produce automatic transmissions with more and more gears, allowing a wider range of gear ratios. Today, most automatic transmissions have 6 or more speeds, with up to 10 speeds being available in products from Ford and General Motors. Technology advances have allowed faster shifting, and more efficient power transfer, such that modern automatic transmissions can offer faster acceleration than the exact same car equipped with a manual transmission. This is especially true in high-horsepower cars that require careful clutch and throttle modulation to avoid excessive wheelspin. Many modern automatics, due to their quick shifting abilities and improved gear selection algorithms, can actually be more fuel efficient than their manual counterparts as well. So, you are likely asking yourself at this point what the point of a manual transmission is, since automatics appear on paper to be so much better in many ways. Manual transmissions offer a form of driving engagement that is simply not possible with an automatic transmission. The driver must choose the correct gear for each driving scenario, and the computer will not assist the driver in any way at selecting the appropriate gear. At best, the driver will get an indicator light on the dashboard that tells the driver when to shift to the next gear. The driver can choose to hold the car in a lower gear if they are planning to pass or climb a hill soon, or choose to hold a higher gear for fuel economy. The point is that the choice of gear ratio is solely up to the driver, with no computer input at all. This is liberating, especially if you’ve never experienced it before. There is a level of driving engagement with a a manual that cannot be duplicated with any automatic transmission, even one equipped with “manual” gear selection or paddle shifters. This is because most automatic transmissions, even when in “manual” mode will allow the computer to over-ride the driver’s selection if the computer believes the requested gear is inappropriate, or would result in over-revving the engine. Note that not all automatics are this way, but most are. If I place my Miata into first gear at 75MPH, and engage the clutch, I will over-rev the engine, destroying major drivetrain components. Obviously, I would never purposefully do this, but the point is that it’s up to me. If I place a modern automatic transmission in first gear at 75MPH, the computer will over-ride my choice, and not allow the shift until the vehicle reaches a safe speed. The bottom line is, a manual transmission allows driving engagement and control that is impossible even with modern automatic transmissions. Manual transmissions are still considered to be more reliable than automatics, but modern technology has progressed to the point you can reasonably expect any manual or automatic transmission to last at least 150,000 miles before requiring a rebuild. Keep in mind that there will be periodic clutch replacements that have to be performed in a manual transmission, which obviously are not required with an automatic. If the clutches in an automatic transmission are worn out, that means the transmission is due for a rebuild, as the clutches likely cannot be replaced individually. So, the direct answer to why people don’t like automatic transmissions is, some people like the driving engagement and excitement that a manual transmission offers. Others may want to purchase cars such as the Subaru WRX STi, Ford Focus ST, Honda Civic Type R, or Porsche Cayman GT4, all of which are only available with a manual transmission. Many classic and vintage cars are only available with manuals as well. So, there are a variety of valid reasons why manual transmissions are still preferred by some drivers.

As a car enthusiast, what do you think of the new, sportier offerings from Toyota?

Still fake. Even the 86 is faking it. A brand should fine tune a sporty product to the point that modification is unnecessary. Toyota isn’t interest. They interest in money. All these 86, Supra, Gundam mod iM (in Japan), etc. are all gimmicks to raise awareness and make money. They are reliable? Yes, but why? Better materials? Better production line control? Better design? These are just marketing talks. Their products are all under powered. Of course they are reliable. They limit you from reaching the red line at best they can. Of course they are reliable. They use the same stuffs over and over for 10 years+ across many models as they can in Toyota and Lexus. They would be shame if those parts are not reliable with all the data they can get from mess production! They scare to produce new and they scare to push to the limit. I have driven the LFA when I worked at a Toyota dealership about 3 or 4 years ago. The first time I don’t hate driving a Toyota. It gives you the power, the handling, the soul, the mission and purpose! The aerodynamic suck the car inward if goes fast enough in a corner, just like a STI. Which other Toyota/Lexus can do this? 86? Any proper low rider can do that. MX-5, Mini, Impreza and many others are way better than 86. What so special about it? $26k for a cheap fake sport car? For what? Regular sedan transmission with paddle shift that can’t hold too much stress? How about an AMG GLA with a proper transmission and 4 cylinder twin-turbo doing 375 hp? Plus a PE system, a true dual pipe from manufacturer. What TRD does? $30k+ for a show, the RC would be a better show although it still a ripoff. The truth is, other brands strive to provide some GTs, sport sedans and sport cars at a competition level while maintaining reliability and offer a competitive rate. Look at Porsche 718 and AMG GLA and Evolution and Impreza and 370Z. These are the cars with romance on country side and a beast on track for fun. Are they less reliable? Yes if you push them all the time without proper maintenance. But proper maintenance is the same across the board. But Toyota stop owners from pushing their products with a computer that give you headache for down shifting and reaching red line. And they call it ‘safety.’ Toyota is not that safe as the general public thinks. This is just another marketing add on value. They advertise the canard diffuser on sedan like a Corolla saying it helps to stabilize the vehicle when passing a semi-truck. Is Toyota the only brand has canard diffuser? Obviously not. Crash results? Well, go check their real scores and compare them to other brands. Fuel economy is totally a joke. Toyota output lesser than competitors. Of course the fuel economy looks good. But is it? In mountain areas like San Francisco, Austin, etc. Toyota/Lexus need way more power than many others to maintain speed going uphill. It so bad that an uphill climb on I-10 can decrease the speed effectively from a 70 mph to 55 mph. Why? Because Toyota/Lexus cars have less power output and their cars heavier than many competitors. It was actually a surprise to me that Americans take the Supra so seriously. Supra is a GT. It is heavy. A FD3S stock to stock real racing can outrun a Supra at anytime. Because FD3S is sport car. Back in the 80s and 90s, you hear Evo, Impreza, Z, RX-7, DC2, DC5, FC2, R32, S2000 in Asia most of the time. Because Supra is a heavy RWD. This is why RC isn’t performing great. LC is not any better that GTR. 718 GT4 can be better value. STI can be more fun! Speaking of the RC, do Toyota really need to launch a new Supra? It just another marketing gimmick. Good call if you are thinking of the MR2, but Honda has NSX, so…

How is the dual clutch system different from a conventional clutch system?

From the standpoint of function, you cannot possibly speed-shift a manual as quickly as a twin clutch sequential. I have a dog box in my STi racecar and it's not even close. Shifts occur in milliseconds. Because it's not as physically involving to flick paddles and both hands remain on the steering wheel, your mind is freed up to focus on the driving. That said, twin clutches are not as fun as a manual. Leo Ambrose's answer to Which transmission shifts faster, single-clutch automated manuals (F1, SMG, R-Tronic, E-gear, ISR) or dual-clutch automated manuals (PDK, DSG, S-Tronic)?

What is the most douchebag car one can drive?

This seems the easiest to assess given my experiences with many a car buyer. I have no doubt the douchiest car is the ,Subaru WRX,, especially in its STI configuration, though it’s only available as a stick. I can’t even begin to describe the sheer numbers of backward-ass hat wearing, immature, always covering their stoned eyes with sunglasses three times too big for their scrawny faces, dorks that seem drawn to this fugly shopping cart with an engine. I guess it gives these micro-penis, barely literate morons the feeling they are more masculine than they truly are. They’ll be the first to claim you’re just jealous or can’t afford this tin can of a Japanese sportster. The pinheads driving these cars seem to think that any day, rain, snow, shine, or 3" of glaze ice is race day and will not hesitate to prove this to you, even if it means slamming into a telephone pole on a winter day. On top of that, the turbocharger whine it has and the ever-present after market exhaust gives these twats a sense of superiority over other vehicles that don't make the motorcycle engine fart sounds that their car does. The dumbasses brag about these fascinating pieces of technology, even if they haven't a clue how they work. Most of them buy the automatic version, not the stick, cause, you know, “The paddles are faster dude. The stick is whack.” I think it’s because they never learned how to shift and vape at the same time.

What is your dream car?

The Mercedes W204 C63 AMG. 6.2 liter M156 V8. ,I’ll install an iPE catless exhaust on it and open the valves. 7 speed auto/paddle-shift transmission. Sensual styling. No forced induction- sharp throttle response. Doesn’t sound like a diesel tractor (I’m looking at you, W205-AMG). Take a listen.
