I just got a wheel and have been improving dramatically over the past few days, I just did my best time at SPA with the Audi R8 LMS (not the Kunos one, by AGU), don't laugh, 2.19.77 using automatic gears, watching my replay I can see I'm not using all the track so I can improve on that. But is it faster using manual gears with the straight line shifter or switches on the back of the wheel, no clutch. I would have to learn how to do that, I have only driven auto's for the past 25 years IRL. I was listening to a car show the other night on the radio and the so called expert said the quickest sports cars today all have auto's, is that true? I see replays on YouTube where they tell you what gear they use for what corner and you can see where they change up/down. So the question is are they that much quicker and is it worth going through the learning faze?
