Hazard, gear, position, gear, speed, gear, acceleration, gear, gear,gear, big braking event, visit to the garage for a new gearbox, taxi home.

I have NEVER wrecked a gearbox in my life - maybe it is because I know how to match the engine revs to the box for a nice smooth change.....

codders.....do you ever stop and think what people might think of you and why so many folks take challenge the seemingly endless dribble that eminates from your pc at a frustrating rate of knots.

You do talk utter crap at times, and other times you word things in a way that gets peoples backs up at every opportunity, now and then you come up with something sensible as statically you will get some things right from time to time with the amount you write. But, you always have to come across as the big expert..........and you are a nobody hiding behind a name that noone has met and dreams of buying a boat...........get a life!!!!

You'd probably be a lot smoother with a double declutch..........or even a cluchless gear change if you're that good at matching revs.

Competition and testing put stresses on cars that most people never will. The Stig managed to destroy TWO BMW M5 diffs on the track a few months ago - yes 2 cars and 2 knackered diffs!!!

I was present when 2 911s destroyed their clutches trying for record 0-60 times. And there were plenty of other cars doing exactly the same.

Maybe the NEW 911 turbo is 4wd - they never used to be - as to spinning the wheels like that at 5000rpm that is my whole point - too few revs and the engine will bog down - too many and you get excessive wheelspin or a stall - the only way with a 4wd turbo to get MAX acceleration is to slip the clutch to keep the boost up.

I don't think you quite grasp the difference between driving quickly and going for the last fraction whilst testing!!!
more crap.

5 more lines of crap. your'e on a roll here:

1. I drive my car to the limit every day where and when safe to do so. This includes being a bit of a boy racer "off the lights" more frequently than a grown man should admit to. I also hammer the sh** out of the car round tracks v frequently with people far more knowledgable about cars than you and I and I can say with hand on heart that I drive the car to my (not the car's) limits pretty much every day. So your "you would NEVER drive a car like that day in day out" is just wrong. End of story.

2. M5 uses a seven speed sequential manual gearbox, an entirely different concept to either standard manual or auto boxes.

3. Clearly a professional day's testing then. Neither EVO magazine, Top Gear Magazine or Car magazine managed to screw up clutches when testing the 911 turbo or turbo s.

4. 911 turbo has been 4wd for some time - certainly the 993 and 996 have both been 4wd, although without doing codders google research I couldnt say if the 993 was the first turbo varient with 4wd. Either way its at least a decade.

5. Trust me codders, I do.

Double declutches aren't needed with synchro boxes - and yes there are plenty of occasions when I do a clutchless change - all depends on the vehicle and the situation.

My little boys Godfather (the guy that had his boat nicked and got it back at Hayling island) imports Skyline GTR's into NZ. By just re-mapping them they produce 450bhp, of which one I drove which was bloody scarey! He has wound his up to produce 850bhp!! He straight line competition drags it.
