2008 Altima 2.5 SL CVT 0-60 (Manual mode)

0-60 run, CVT transmission set to Manual mode. I let the car shift itself since I'm holding the camera. Link to 0-60 in Automatic (CVT) mode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OV4HD1gsw_M I want to let everyone know that this video does demonstrate how the car accelerates at full throttle in manual mode. There's a weird anomaly that shows up when accelerating with the engine under around 3000 RPM. The tacometer doesn't shoot up in a linear form like most automatic transmissions. Instead, acceleration builds until it gets over 3000 RPM, and then you get a burst of power through the engine's 6000 RPM redline. I've only got a couple of theories as to why this might happen in this mode. 1. To keep the CVT chain from slipping, power is limited until 3000 RPM, thus creating a "lag" effect. At 3000 RPM, the engine and CVT have enough motion/grip to keep the chain from slipping, so the engine reigns in full power until redline. 2. The engine does not have adequate power in its low end rev range. Because of the way the engine is tuned, all of the power is made above 3000RPM's. Those are my ideas. What do you guys think?

CVT auto vs CVT manual acceleration
2011 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium CVT acceleration difference when in "Drive mode" versus "Manual mode". In manual mode I leave the transmision change gears on it's own beacause it's not "redlineable". The test was at 450 meters (1500 feet) in elevation (+- 3% loss in hp). Temperature was -1 Celcius (30 fahrenheit). Winter tires. Traction control ON (did not came on).





2013 NISSAN Altima Coupe - Shift Modes
Shift Modes (if so equipped) Your vehicle may be equipped with three shift modes: Drive, Drive Sport and Manual. For normal forward driving, use the Drive position. From the Drive position, move the shift lever to the left to shift into the Drive Sport mode. In this mode, the transmission changes to a "sporty" driving, shift operation, creating a more aggressive acceleration feeling than the "Drive" mode and provides a gear change sensation when the driver accelerates quickly. From the Drive Sport mode, you can shift into Manual mode by moving the shift lever up or down. Manual Shift mode offers the driver more control for maximum performance. Once engaged, the Manual Shift mode will display on the position indicator and the transmission will automatically choose a range closest to your vehicle's current speed. In Manual mode, you can choose different shift ranges using the shift lever. To shift up to a higher gear, push the shift lever forward. When shifting to a lower gear, pull the lever back. Moving the shift lever in the same direction twice will shift through the ranges in succession. To return to normal driving mode, move the shift lever from Manual to the Drive position.
