Question Sequential Changing

Am I supposed take my foot off the gas when shifting the sequential box?

Pootling around town, no problems... but when pushing I find the rev limiter real quick or the engine cuts out on a change, particularly from 2nd to 3rd... all goes quiet, (only for a split second) before the engine thunders back, arse wiggle and off again...

So I experimented with taking the foot off the gas, but gear changes aren't smooth... Is the system programmed to cut the engine when changing?

Re: Sequential Changing

Obviosly your driving a BA, just keep the foot flat when changing for quick acceleration, but just make sure u change just before the rev liumiter because by the time the tranny changes you will have hit the limiter by then!!! it dosnt matter whether u have ur foot flat or take it off... as the car changes gears the computer retards the timing on the motor so it dosnt produce as much torque during the shift making it smoother... somethin like that i think!!!!

Re: Sequential Changing

Just change before the limiter and you'll be fine...there is no need to take your foot off the accelerator.

Re: Sequential Changing

hold it flat and smack another gear.

lifting of mid-shift in an auto is bad - it stuffs with your line pressures/band/clutch application, because the gearbox was all set up for a hard shift, then it thinks "ah ok false alarm" then bang into the gas and its caught on the back foot, with no line pressure or what-have-you.

Re: Sequential Changing

Thanks guys....

After more testing (honest officer) I've found I must have grabbed another gear just as the limiter came to visit.

Just knowing when the boss wants another gear is a new thing, the damn thing doesn't feel like its running out of puff, it always sounds like it has more to give.

I just have to learn how to hear what it is doing rather than listen to the howl... :)
