DSG Transmission - Explained
What is a DSG transmission? How does a direct shift gearbox work? A DSG
transmission is a dual clutch transmission used by Volkswagen. A DSG uses
two wet, multi-plate clutches to activate separate drive shafts which send
torque via the even or odd gear sets. Because the gear sets are on separate
shafts, this allows for preselecting the next gear, allowing for nearly
instantaneous gearshifts without a total loss in torque. DSG tranmissions
operate a lot like manual transmissions, but they are electronically
controlled and thus the gear selection can be either automatic or manual,
but does not require the use of a clutch pedal as this is all activated
