    Hi. I've a g25 and i can change the 1st to the 2nd gear, the 2nd to the 3rd gear and so on, without clutching. In real cars you can´t do this. And i have "automatic gear" and "automatic cluch" off. Is this normal?

    i think you will find it is supposed to emulate a sequential manual transmission where you can change gear without using a clutch

    I have a G25 too, and I can do this without a clutch too. For example, when I drive E30 M3(WTCC87), which has a 5 speed H gearbox... I can change gears without a clutch, but I use a clutch is interesting and more grip on braking :p Can I make on the G25 to be impossible to change gears without clutch?

    The downforce is strong with this one. Premium

    Yes, it doesn't work real. But you can spin your car sometimes when you do that in corners.

    Even with SQ it is normal to use clutch and throttle blip for downshifts in real life (formula bmw, radical, caterham hayabusa, gt1 cars, v8 supercars, ...).

    There is this line in car's hdc file:

    [DRIVELINE]
    SemiAutomatic=0 // whether throttle and clutch are operated automatically

    0=manual, 1=automatic ???

    I'm planing to modify it for some cars. If I changed that for formula bmw, I could get upshifts with lifting of the throttle pedal and H&T for downshifting which is real. I'd like to try it if it works and if it is usable in race 07.

    There is an add-in for rFactor that does this, but it is not compatible with Race as far as I know.

    Honestly the use for this is pretty limited, a modern dogbox does not require clutching on up or down shifts, so the only time this would add realism is in a historic setting, or a series where you know the cars use standard H-gate transmissions.

    Then again, I am not the type of guy that pumps his wheel up to 900° when racing historics, I just pretend I replaced the steering rack and transmission :)

    For realism, you can still shift cars in real life without a clutch, but you need to use the clutch for stopping and starts. I do this in real life all the time, it just takes practice to be good at it.

    I do that in real life too, but not in the 7000rpm that is impossible.

    Any range of speed is possible. The old F1 cars of the 70's shifted that way. They had to use timing to engage the transmission as it didn't have any syncromesh gears, they were all straight gears to keep weight down.
