    Hello guys,

    Yesterday I tried some cars of the 1992 DTM and Touring classics cars classes before I buy them
    I selected the H box, mapped my buttons and let the option automatic clutch on "off"

    But in game, there is no difference if I put my foot on the clutch or not, the gears are going up and down, as if I were playing with automatic clutch.

    Why? Did I miss something in the options? I would like to drive with mandatory clutch like in reality, is it possible in the game?

    You are damaging your gearbox that way, but there is no damage during test drives.

    It's worth noting that racing cars typically feature dog gearboxes which don't require the normal throttle off => clutch in => shift gear => clutch out => throttle on style of shifting. Instead you kinda blip the clutch and slam it into gear asap.

    You can even downshift on many cars without using clutch, as long as you revmatch.

    ok, I hoped that there is a sound when you missed the gear (like in Iracing or Dirt Rally).

    There is in the DTM 92. Mess up your shift and you'll hear a rather unhealthy sounding *crunch* as you shift. I know, because I hear it all the bloody time! :p
