RF2 Car Gearboxes

Discussion in 'rFactor 2' started by Kevin Kientopp, May 26, 2013.

  1. Hey, I was wondering if someone had a list of each car in rFactor2 and the proper shifter to use. Would be great to have a complete list in a post that is stickied for people to reference. Thanks! :)

    Hey Kevko,

    On ISI website they have description of the cars (not all yet) with the kind of gearbox they use.:)
    http://rfactor.net/web/rf2/rf2dl/
    I'm sure they will add the info for the other cars in the future.
     
  3. Thanks Ian. I saw that page and saw a few that had the gearbox info listed, but most are missing.

    Was racing the GT-R tonight and wasn't sure what I should be using. Ended up using the H-gate.

    I'm not sure for all the cars, but I suppose Modern open wheelers all wheelshifters, think modern GT cars Sequentials or some might have wheelshifters, think all classic cars have manual H shifters. Don't really see H shifters that many anymore in modern cars, but if someone actually knows please correct me. Suppose google search will give an answer though.

    You can watch onboard with Nissan GTR1 of 2011 on 6.14, they have in that year sequential.

    Can't think of any modern racers that use an H-Pattern these days.

    The Formula cars will use paddle shifters, the Skip Barber a sequential(although an h-pattern would work quite well with it I think) and the GT and Touring Cars use sequential. The historic cars use the h-pattern up to 5th gear I think.

    Noticed in real life a lot of GT cars using paddle shifters this year so maybe the sequential is on the way out.

    What difference does it actually make in the Sim? They are not simulating any of these, do they?

    You can change gears without using the clutch, independent from auto-clutch/auto-blip settings, cant you?

    Well it is fun for the immersion:)
    I believe the clutch is not fully implemented indeed, but I'm sure they will do so in the future at some point.
