Automatic vs Semi-Automatic vs Manual - Part II

Background MANUAL. Manual transmissions were the first and most common type of transmission to be fitted in cars to benefit from different gear ratios between the respective propulsion of engine and drivetrain. They basically involve the activation by the driver of the clutch by a foot pedal, the positioning of gears by a gear stick, and the respective coordination of the fuel supply through a throttle pedal. Manual transmissions cost less to manufacture and their reparation in case of malfunction is less complex and costly than that of automated ones. As compared with fully automated devices, it also allows for a potential greater fuel efficiency (albeit not necessarily) as the driver can judge what especial conditions of driving allow for taller ratios and lower supply of fuel. The risk of engine breakdown due to over-revving has additionally been significantly reduced through the fitting of electronic rev-limiters. More significantly, however, the greater advantage of manuals lies in the substantially different driving experience. Automobiles with manual gearboxes situate the driver in command of all the important functions of the vehicle, such as gear selection, amount and duration of clutch activation, fuel supply, all of whose related combinations allow for an infinite range of subtle variations of the dynamics of the machine. Automobile enthusiasts, that is, individuals related to vehicles seeking the sensorial experience of driving for its own sake rather than as a means of transport or of merely attempting to move measurably faster, tend to value all the mechanical operations implied by active driving rather than seeking promised marginal gains in speed by the delegation of functions to the vehicle's automated systems. The experience of directly controlling and operating the main variables and functions of the vehicle and for the driver to be organically integrated with the whole of the machine is believed to be of greatest appeal to car enthusiasts.

CVT Paddle Shifting vs Formula 1 PDK (Doppelkupplung)
CVT Paddle Shifting vs Formula 1 PDK - (Doppelkupplung Dual-Clutch) Get the book here: https://www.createspace.com/4283730 https://www.createspace.com/371853 Ok, so what does CVT technology has to do with Formula-1 technology? The answer is, you're right, absolutely nothing. However, in an ever increasing move to adapt and accept CVT technology, some manufacturers have installed the paddle style Formula-1 shift on CVT vehicles. This move is a complete negation of the benefits of CVT, and a waste of money for the consumer. In this article we'll explain the differences between the two technologies and how they work, to allow you to make a decision. We encourage you to go elsewhere in this series, for more on CVT technology. The newer semi-automatic dual clutch transmissions, are a direct result of years of Formula 1 technology. These transmissions are directly related to the manual, standard stick shift dry clutch transmissions that we all know. However, the semi- automatic, also known as PDK for their German name, effect the actual shifting using either servo hydraulic, or electric actuators, using a paddle shifter on the steering wheel. This is exactly the same technology used in Formula 1 racing cars. Lots of automotive technology first starts in the Formula 1 circuit, then trickles down to mass produced cars. Paddle shifted PDK semi-automatic transmissions, are the latest and most advanced gearboxes today. These units have all the benefits of a manual transmission, including fuel economy, have no torque converter, no gear wet clutches, and are fully computerized and able to operate as a normal automatic. There are two types of paddle shifted PDK semi-automatic transmission, the single dry clutch, and the more advanced ... Get the whole story right here in this video...

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 chords automatically. 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. _________________________________ *Carlyle's Picks - www.carlylespicks.com* Reviews, information and ACTION videos on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays!!

Shifting gears, 12 speed Volvo
More of me showing of. . . . sharing with youtubers, driving modern heavy vehicles.Today I'm in an 2007 FM12 Volvo, fitted with Volvo's own electronically controlled 12 speed automatic/semi automatic clutchless gearbox. I must admit I didn't like the Idea at first (I'm a roadranger man myself), but after spending a couple of days with this, I was hooked, real bit of trick gear, others European truck manufactures have similar concept's (likely sourced from ZF), HEAPS more drivable than the self shifting Roadranger, faster and smoother than the 'BENZ.





Rear-Wheel Drive vs Front-Wheel Drive vs All-Wheel Drive
Top Gear © BBC 2000. "Old Top Gear", broadcast on 09 March 2000 [LOW VIDEO QUALITY] Vicky Butler-Henderson (Fifth Gear) tests and compares three different automotive drivetrains: rear-wheel drive (RWD), front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD). NOTE: It must be noted that the Audi A4 quattro was a vehicle developed primarily as a front-wheel and not an all-wheel drive car, with most of its kinetic layout (weight distribution, suspension structure, relative wheel distribution, etc.) conceived for front-wheel propulsion. It has a traction torque bias towards the front wheels. Neither was it equipped with active limited-slip differentials (i.e. front- or rear axles or in the shaft in-between) to distribute torque/traction as per contingent wheel grip. By contrast other front-engined, all-wheel drive vehicles (i.e. Subaru Impreza WRX STi, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo) are conceived from the onset with permanent and symmetrical all-wheel drive systems and are often equipped with various arrays of slip differentials in the front- and rear axles and in the torque shaft, resulting in an altogether significantly different vehicle dynamic behaviour. It should also be mentioned that since the broadcast of this film, several traction systems have been developed, for both front and all-wheel drive vehicles, notably mechanical or electronic differentials for front-wheel drive cars e.g. those developed by Alfa Romeo, Ford, Citroën or Nissan. Finally, it should be noted that the criteria for this test was to determine traction on dry tarmac, asphalt sufaces, and not loose ground such as wet tarmac, gravel, sand, snow or mud, contexts in which the dynamic results would most probably vary. It is generally agreed that they do so in favour of (permanent) all-wheel drive or (selectable) four-wheel drive systems, also given the possibility of dual-range transmissions (including greater torque conversion) © Video Copyrights: Top Gear, BBC & BBC World, 2000.

Automatic vs Semi-Automatic vs Manual - RACING
© Best Motoring International, Japan, 2003. NOTE: Please mind this is a referential video only. It does not intend to reflect the current state of development of the most recent transmission technologies, nor their efficiency. Please note the video was filmed in 2003 when semi-automated systems had not experienced the considerable improvement they later did in the late 2000's. Crucially, none of the cars with automated transmissions on this video feature Double-Clutch Transmission (DCT) technologies, which have in recent years considerably improved aspects such as manual activation, gearshift order delays and inter-gear time-lapses. Tested vehicles: o Mitsubishi Evo VII GSR YELLOW ( MANUAL) o Mitsubishi Evo VII GT-A (*) CHAMPAGNE (AUTOMATIC) o BMW M3 [E46] SILVER ( MANUAL) o BMW M3 [E46] SMG II MUSTARD (SEMI-AUTOMATIC) o Ferrari 360 Modena RED ( MANUAL) o Ferrari 360 Modena F1 WHITE (SEMI-AUTOMATIC) (*) Please note the Mitsubishi Evo VII GT-A automatic has a -8 HP disadvantage over the equivalent GSR, Manual model. © Video Copyrights: Best Motoring International, Japan, 2003.
