quick video demonstrating the Scion FR-S automatic transmission shift respose time and shift speed via its paddle shifted manual mode. Car is totally stock. Rev-matches nicely and responds fast. Fun to use if you have to get the automatic.

Amazing Comments About Review:
"He has no camera presence, a foul mouth, doesn't appear to really excel
in automotive knowledge"
"Judging by way you present and deliver your arguments, the only cars youve
been in is the backseat of your friends as they drive you to and from the
7-11. In order to successfully give a review, you must have some sort of
platform to make the reader/viewer think you know what you are talking
"It is a torture to listen to him speaking, let alone review a car. "
"No it just sucks donkey **** even more after that. I want 6 mins of my
life back that I wasted staring at this crap."
"Nothing to see here, just some balding middle-class suburbanite with a
video camera, internet connection and the belief that people care about
what he has to say instead of leaving it to the professionals. I'm stunned
I sat through the whole thing to be honest."
"This guy talks about cars the same way that a man would explain to his
wife how he just gave her a VD. "um, well.... uh"
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs Toyota GT86 - which is more fun?
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Toyota GT86 are separated by £214,000 and
533bhp, but they are both best-of-breed front-engined, rear-drive drivers'
cars. So, which is best?

They're both handsome, reasonably practical cars. They both have an engine
in the front sending power to the rear wheels. And while the Ferrari F12
Berlinetta will hit 211mph, the Toyota GT86 will 'only' reach 140mph. But
the thing we're interested in is this: can a £240,000 supercar thrill its
drivers on track more than a £25,000 Toyota? Matt Prior takes both to
Snetterton to find out.

Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
http://carlylespicks.com/?p=142 Which is better, manual or automatic
transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
For the true enthusiast, the clutch pedal and gear stick or shifter are a
JOY to use...NOT a burden. Traffic is the one exception but we are talking
about the car enthusiast. We drive fr PLEASURE, NOT to get to work or get
groceries. So traffic is not an issue when it's 7AM on a Saturday or Sunday
and you are headed to your favorite country road.
For the enthusiast, the clutch pedal is a PLUS not a minus. It is a
critical part of what makes driving a stick shift an art. Automatic is
email and manual is a hand written note. A dying art that is much more
involved and personal than email.
Making a perfect shift, makes me smile like NO paddle shift will EVER do!
Manual is a piano played with a live band, automatic is one man with a
Casio keyboard in his basement with automatic accompaniment generated by
the keyboard. The feeling of playing a complex piece correctly dwarfs any
reward of pressing ONE note and having the Casio keyboard play a bunch of
Is a paddle shift a manual transmission?
Being able to request gears manually does NOT make a transmission
automatic. Remember in the automatics from the 80s you had "2" "L" "R"? So
automatics have allowed you to "change gears" since the 80s. This is just
like modern paddle shifters do.
NOTE: A sequential gearbox is NOT the same as the classic automatic
gearbox, but the point is, you could ALWAYS select/request gears in
automatics. So the ability to SELECT gears does not make it manual. You
need the ability to physically disengage the clutch by moving the throw out
bearing and also to physically change the actual gears. This is all
mechanically done, not electronically. It requires focus, finesse,
strength, timing and skill and it's rewarding to do correctly.

The 450 HP Crawford Performance Turbo BRZ - /TUNED
We love the FRS and BRZ twins; they offer an approachable limit of
performance and phenomenal dynamics in an affordable package. And we
learned earlier this season that a bolt-on turbo kit will add to the FRS's performance
without taking away from it's character. But what happens when you double
the BRZ's horsepower and triple it's
torque? We find out.

Torque Converters Explained -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
In this video I cover the purpose and operation of the turbine, stator,
impeller, and torque converter clutch. I hope the explanation and
practical give you some insight into how these parts work to not only
transfer power from the engine to the transmission, but also how it drives
the transmission pump and doubles the torque output of the engine when you
take off from a dead stop. I've wanted to make this video for some time.
In fact I've had the fans sitting in the back of the shop for almost a
year. Now that I have the Automatic Transmission Dissection video under my
belt I thought I would add a torque converter dissection into the mix. I
hope you enjoy this video and that it gets you a better understanding of
torque converter operation. Especially since I killed my air compressor
cutting this one in half.

the information more accurate. I am going to be posting the old video for
