GEAR SHIFT DOES NOT GO FROM 2nd TO 3rd IN A STRAIGHT LINE.
May be I’m not able to explain you clearly or you don’t make sense what I said. Anyway leave it.
Ferrari must be having a paddle shift so, above discussion is ruled out. |
Where does the stick come in a paddle shift?? Moreover, a Gear Shift Assist doesn't help is slotting gears, it assist clutchless up-shifts. Half knowledge is very dangerous my friend.
Ferrari, City came down for how mechanism works differently with same type of gearbox. Gear Shift Assist (not computerize/ visual display stuff) is a mechanism (may be spring type) which make the gear leaver movement smoother. Like general break/clutch and hydraulic break/clutch. Yes truly half knowledge is very dangerous.
So you mean to say, in "PREMIUM CARS" one just has to touch the level towards down and it automatically goes to a lower gear?? Buddy, try ANY manual, if you push down from 3rd without gripping the knob(keeping it loose), it would spring to neutral and not to 3rd.
Please read my queries again, I didn’t say “Just Touch” I said to pull it down in a straight line from 3rd and it goes to 2nd with slight play at left. In good gearbox cars you don’t need to give lots of force to changing gears, just a firm movement which you can do it by two fingers. Some people call it feather touch gear.
Anyway my queries was for getting the correct feedback, not an argument.
