    Hello Reiza Studios, thanks for such a great sim ! excellent work on this one, and you guys raised the bar for the upcoming games (like f3 sudam) !

    I wonder what is the correct way to change gears on these cars. Looking at this video:



    I noticed that the driver does a right foot braking, and only use the clutch while downshifting, not for upshifts. is this correct ?

    Also, should the driver use heel-and-toe, or does the car have some kind of "auto-blip" feature ?

    Thanks !

    Yes

    At your choice. In user.plr there are two lines:

    autolift=1
    autoblip=1

    If you change to:

    autolift=1
    autoblip=0

    you should drive as in the video.

    There should be no need to change the PLR file. If you want auto lift / blip, then use the 'auto clutch' in the difficulty menu. If you turn this off, then you have to blip and lift yourself.

    Some drivers right foot brake and heel & toe. Perhaps some simply blip a little bit during the downshift without pressing the clutch, there tends to be more than one way. Sometimes you see a clear clutch press on upshifts, sometimes it is not so obvious.

    Thank you very much, I did not known.

    So, does auto-clutch activate what you have in your plr. "=1"?

    If I want autolift, but no autoblip, Is this the right configuration?:

    autolift=1
    autoblip=0
    auto-clutch = on

    By the way, is this something specifical for GSC, or it works the same way in all gmotor2 simulators?

    Thank you!

    Yes it should be like that ;)

    And it's also the same way for every SimBin games and others (rFactor and such)

    Thank you

    So, I guess there is no way for having autoclutch off and autolift on. Is that right?

    Hi
    Sorry for bringing this topic back to the table, but I just wat to get a clear understanding.

    A) In my case, I have auto-clutch disabled, and I didn't make any change to the PLR so far. Thus that means my autoblip is currently not working, unless I set the auto-clutch on, Is that correct? Despite having auto-clutch disabled, I use it only for race starts (I don't press the clucth on downshifing / upshifting).

    B) If "A" is correct and supposing that I want to keep the auto-clutch disabled (because I prefer manual clutch for starts rather than auto) and autoblip "for myself", can I then just blip the throttle without pressing the clutch in order to get the heel & toe effect, or do I really need to have the clutch pressed?

    C) If possible, what do you guys recommend?

    thanks!

    A) Well, should be I guess

    B) You don't have to use the clutch, although on downshifts it can help to settle the car better and it's good for immersion :)

    C) What I do in Sequential shifting cars is basically:

    Auto-Clutch: OFF, I don't lift except in corners so it's basically constant "power-shifting" and I heel and toe using the clutch :)
