Ok, so what does CVT technology has to do with Formula-1 technology? The
answer is, you're right, absolutely nothing. However, in an ever increasing
move to adapt and accept CVT technology, some manufacturers have installed
the paddle style Formula-1 shift on CVT vehicles. This move is a complete
negation of the benefits of CVT, and a waste of money for the consumer. In
this article we'll explain the differences between the two technologies and
how they work, to allow you to make a decision. We encourage you to go
elsewhere in this series, for more on CVT technology.
The newer semi-automatic dual clutch transmissions, are a direct result of
years of Formula 1 technology. These transmissions are directly related to
the manual, standard stick shift dry clutch transmissions that we all know.
However, the semi- automatic, also known as PDK for their German name,
effect the actual shifting using either servo hydraulic, or electric
actuators, using a paddle shifter on the steering wheel. This is exactly
the same technology used in Formula 1 racing cars. Lots of automotive
technology first starts in the Formula 1 circuit, then trickles down to
mass produced cars.
Paddle shifted PDK semi-automatic transmissions, are the latest and most
advanced gearboxes today. These units have all the benefits of a manual
transmission, including fuel economy, have no torque converter, no gear wet
clutches, and are fully computerized and able to operate as a normal
automatic. There are two types of paddle shifted PDK semi-automatic
transmission, the single dry clutch, and the more advanced ... Get the

Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick
shift? Ending the debate!
For the true enthusiast, the clutch pedal and gear stick or shifter are a
JOY to use...NOT a burden. Traffic is the one exception but we are talking
about the car enthusiast. We drive fr PLEASURE, NOT to get to work or get
groceries. So traffic is not an issue when it's 7AM on a Saturday or Sunday
and you are headed to your favorite country road.
For the enthusiast, the clutch pedal is a PLUS not a minus. It is a
critical part of what makes driving a stick shift an art. Automatic is
email and manual is a hand written note. A dying art that is much more
involved and personal than email.
Making a perfect shift, makes me smile like NO paddle shift will EVER do!
Manual is a piano played with a live band, automatic is one man with a
Casio keyboard in his basement with automatic accompaniment generated by
the keyboard. The feeling of playing a complex piece correctly dwarfs any
reward of pressing ONE note and having the Casio keyboard play a bunch of
Is a paddle shift a manual transmission?
Being able to request gears manually does NOT make a transmission
automatic. Remember in the automatics from the 80s you had "2" "L" "R"? So
automatics have allowed you to "change gears" since the 80s. This is just
like modern paddle shifters do.
NOTE: A sequential gearbox is NOT the same as the classic automatic
gearbox, but the point is, you could ALWAYS select/request gears in
automatics. So the ability to SELECT gears does not make it manual. You
need the ability to physically disengage the clutch by moving the throw out
bearing and also to physically change the actual gears. This is all
mechanically done, not electronically. It requires focus, finesse,
strength, timing and skill and it's rewarding to do correctly.
