Well, in Jul - Aug 2002 there was a contest track where the rule was race with automatic transmission. It was an interesting idea but I don't enjoy too much with auto transm.

But you are right, there is a difference between auto and manual. I guess I can't reach 1:24.05 in zct22 with auto. And the difference is bigger with the power gear cars (Indy, corvette, acura, Ferrari, ?audi?).

Anyone can learn to use manual transmission. It's not that hard. At least not if your gears are on Space and Enter. Just try!

Fdzierva almost never used manual transmission, and he achieved super results. Look at his replays.
But we can't be quite sure.

Fortunately it's true! :lol:
But better for me are the A-Z keys ;)

DAYAN... come on, u got a left hand? so drive manual, like us all. And u will drive faster this way, u will develop unknown muscles and brain zones.
It is reasonable to expect that genetic influences on traits like IQ should become less important as one gains experiences with age. Surprisingly, the opposite occurs.

Why would you want to change to A and Z? :D It's clearly better to have the lever on Space and Enter - then you can use part of your left hand to control the arrows also. I think it depends on where you downloaded the game. It can't be changed as far as I know
But we can't be quite sure.

simply both keysets work at the same time, you don't have to change anything.

Well... when I started to use manual I used the Space - Enter keys like in Gran Prix Circuit/Cycles, test drive, etc.
I guess I changed to A - Z after playing Car & Driver or NFS. But from the first time to control the car I used the keypad numbers.

I just looked up the transmissions' war in ZakStunts: since 2002 (when using manual gears already was absolutely dominant), the best ranking with auto gears was a 4th place (from 16 pipsqueaks) by me with LM002 (behind Bonzai Joe, Alain, Akoss Poo but overtaking Usrin, Krys, Zak and Mingva). That wasn't a really pro race - if Super Brian can finish 5th or 6th now, his result will be better than mine comparing the opponents and the evolution of the competitions...

I suggest to have a pure auto trm race once in ZakStunts. If not then in Unskilled. ;)

Interesting idea. Although there already was one in 2002 (ZCT +3).
But we can't be quite sure.

I remember this one : Hungaroring reverse, 3 laps, indy, auto gears. I ended 5th if I remember it well. Looping Warriors (Akoss and Usrin) were 1st and 2nd, Orion took the 3 following places (Alain, Mingva and me in this order if my memory is correct). This was one of my 1st races, with ZCT16 and FSC1.
