Auto clutch and throttle blip
« on: March 20, 2015, 10:31:36 AM »
What's the deal with the auto clutch and throttle blip?

When I'm using paddles I don't want to have to use the clutch pedal, so should I have auto clutch on? Yesterday I was in the 458 and must have had it off, but I don't notice and my gear changes seemed smooth. I then switched to the Mercedes-Benz 190E EVO and it was immediately clear I had the auto clutch off. Does it depend on the car you use?

I assume throttle blip is for matching revs on downshift? Again unsure if I should be using it.

Cheers

Cars with paddle shifters automatically cut the throttle when you shift, with no clutch required, even with no game aids on. It's only cars with an H shifter in real life that benefit from clutch/throttle game aids. Use them if you like.

Thanks, that would make sense why the 458 seemed fine with auto clutch off.
