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.





MANUAL vs AUTO vs DCT vs CVT Acceleration Comparison 0-100mph+

Manual Transmission or Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). Automatic Transmission or Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Responsive automatics are good if you know your car very well you'll always be in the powerband. DCT's are best for daily driving performance with same drivetrain loss as Manual but with lighting fast shifts. Manuals can be rev launched at almost any speed and gives the driver full control of the car. CVT is by far the least functional and revs your engine to redline until something breaks and very poor mpg unless you have flappy paddles. But wouldn't that defeat the purpose of CVT? This only describes the behavior of each transmission towards the driver in spirited driving situations if you just want to boast about a CVT and how much control it gives the driver be my guest. manual vs auto, manual vs automatic, manual vs dual clutch, manual vs DCT, manual vs CVT, automatic vs manual, auto vs manual, stick vs auto, stick vs automatic, stick vs DCT, stick vs dual clutch, stick vs cvt, automatic vs stick, auto vs stick, automatic vs DCT, auto vs DCT, automatic vs CVT, auto vs CVT, DCT vs stick, DCT vs manual, DCT vs auto, DCT vs automatic, DCT vs CVT, dual clutch vs stick, dual clutch vs manual, dual clutch vs auto, dual clutch vs automatic, dual clutch vs CVT, CVT vs auto, CVT vs automatic, manual or auto, manual or automatic, manual or dual clutch, manual or DCT, manual or CVT, automatic or manual, auto or manual, stick or auto, stick or automatic, stick or DCT, stick or dual clutch, stick or cvt, automatic or stick, auto or stick, automatic or DCT, auto or DCT, automatic or CVT, auto or CVT, DCT or stick, DCT or manual, DCT or auto, DCT or automatic, DCT or CVT, dual clutch or stick, dual clutch or manual, dual clutch or auto, dual clutch or automatic, dual clutch or CVT, CVT or auto, CVT or automatic, CVT or manual, CVT or stick, CVT or DCT,CVT vs manual, CVT vs stick, CVT vs DCT, 5spd manual 6spd manual 7spd manual, 5 speed manual, 6 speed manual, 7 speed manual, 5 spd auto, 5spd automatic, 5 speed auto, 5 speed automatic, 6 spd auto, 6spd automatic, 6 speed auto, 6 speed automatic, 7 spd auto, 7spd automatic, 7 speed auto, 7 speed automatic, 8 spd auto, 8spd automatic, 8 speed auto, 8 speed automatic, 6 spd DCT, 6 speed DCT, 6 spd dual clutch, 6 speed dual clutch, 7 spd DCT, 7 speed DCT, 7 spd dual clutch, 7 speed dual clutch, clutch, brake torque, slushbox, stick, stick shift, turbo, twin turbo, Supercharger, supercharged, procharger, SC, 0-60mph, 0-100mph, 0-140mph, 0-150mph, V6, Inline 6, V8, ITB's,





How A CVT Works by TEAM Industries.mov
TEAM has received a lot of requests to explain how a CVT works, here is a good video showing the basics of CVT. In the future we will be posting more videos explaining some of our innovations to the basic design. Take a look and let us know what you think.
