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.

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

The Basic Parts of an Automatic Transmission (Part 1)
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This is part one of my front wheel drive (FWD) automatic transmission
dissection video. In this video I cover the operation of clutches, bands,
accumulators, clutch drums, the oil pump, the valve body, valves, check
balls, seals and 'o' rings, as well as the construction and function of
many of the internal hard parts of an automatic transmission. To be honest
a rear wheel drive transmission isn't much different as many of the basic
components are the same. I guess what I'm saying is that you could use the
information in this video to have a basic understanding of a rear wheel
drive automatic transmission also. It is just a basic overview of the main
components. I don't get into theory and operation so much. Just the
general operation and identification of the parts. I may make more videos
on this topic based on the comments I get so feel free to ask questions and
perhaps I'll answer them in a future video on this topic. There will also
be a separate video on the parts and operation of the torque converter as
well. When that is posted I'll post links below to that video.
