But, this is a classic example where adding more gears makes the transmission worse.. it's always changing gear! Thanksfully the 7 speed is better
Furthermore the torque converter is inactive until the top gear, meaning low speed cruising (say at 30mph) is inefficient.. surprisingly not much power is lost on the i3, 5hp at 30mph cruise and 10hp at full throttle, but the diesel loses a bit more (~20hp at full throttle).
Also lowShiftUp points need to be soo much lower, eg. 1st gear's shift up should be say 900rpm (which might sound a disaster for performance but it does work well), accelerate incredibly slowly in the diesel and once you hit 2200rpm you can see the car lurch forward.. This would not happen if it changed gear earlier and slipped it's way through the gears at low throttle.
7 speed sounds sensible (and works better than 10 speed), and I will PM you a file with these changes once i have done them (by tomorrow). Together we will make the best FCV gearbox :P
Excellent! Lovely and smooth, super relaxing to drive - a very realistic implementation. I do think 10 gears is too many for a car of this type. Modern Peugeots have 8, and modern Mazdas have 6. Could you work your magic on a 6 or 8 speed gearbox for this car too?
Highly recommend this mod.Made the car feel more realistic in the new update. only one recommendation, can you maybe also make it so if car is in comfort and in manual mode it does not shift as brutal? My dads Audi a4 sline does the same, it only shifts brutal in dynamic/sport mode and shift calmly in manual if in comfort
Wonderful, yet again. I was waiting for a real automatic because the devs can’t seem to make a realistic dual clutch—like it doesn’t move forward until you gas it and that’s not realistic. But this 10 speed is great. Makes driving way more fun!
