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
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.

The Not So Nice | Scion FR-S Review | Part 1
SEE THE NEW UPDATED VIDEO PART 2:
Amazing Comments About Review:
"He has no camera presence, a foul mouth, doesn't appear to really excel
in automotive knowledge"
"Judging by way you present and deliver your arguments, the only cars youve
been in is the backseat of your friends as they drive you to and from the
7-11. In order to successfully give a review, you must have some sort of
platform to make the reader/viewer think you know what you are talking
"It is a torture to listen to him speaking, let alone review a car. "
"No it just sucks donkey **** even more after that. I want 6 mins of my
life back that I wasted staring at this crap."
"Nothing to see here, just some balding middle-class suburbanite with a
video camera, internet connection and the belief that people care about
what he has to say instead of leaving it to the professionals. I'm stunned
I sat through the whole thing to be honest."
"This guy talks about cars the same way that a man would explain to his
wife how he just gave her a VD. "um, well.... uh"
