R34 Tiptronic Buttons Or Lever?

Recommended Posts

100% lever.

There is a thread on another forum that reads ...

Before driving the GTR at Silverstone I'd have agreed with you.

But after driving the GTR I have to say I could live with that paddleshift forever..

The are big advantages of using a paddle shifter over the centre console mounted lever.

Has anyone else noticed if using the buttons shifts faster than the lever? My stag seems to shift faster with the buttons :cool:

100% agree. I would say as much as half the shift time. But the advantage of the lever is that it's always in the same position (+ve), the buttons can get confusing when the wheel is upside down (-ve).

My flaring is so bad that 1st to 2nd shifts @ 80% to full throttle need to be done by 5500rpm inorder not to hit rev limiter, any later than that and she either bounces or I need to back right off. shifts can be delayed as much as 2-3 seconds. What a massive performance loss!

The auto experts answer was that the friction plates in the tranny have probably "glazed over" (like brake pads can) and there effectiveness is greatly reduced. He was sceptical that value body upgrades would help at all with the flaring. GRRRR.
