PC2 tries to simulate (except road spec cars) a racing gearbox. Most racing gearboxes run with a "dog clutch". normal road cars utilise a "syncromesh clutch".@Cluck event is missing from the calendar.
Well I tried heel-and-toe but seems impossible with my current pedals setup... brake pedal on the left side of the stand of my Wheel Stand Pro, throttle pedal on the right. Too much work to change it so will give it a try today or tomorrow with manual clutch and h-shifter ... without downshift throttle blipping... won't work probably... so might switch to auto clutch...
A syncro clutch requires the clutch to be depressed with each gear change. A dog clutch does not.
you can get a smooth gear change without using the clutch by:
- to change up - lift of the throttle (it only needs to drop to 3/4 throttle), engage the next gear then back on the throttle.
- to change down (even while braking) - press the throttle to rev the engine as you engage the lower gear.
If you time it right (as is the case with all racing) then you will never need to press the clutch except for a standing start (maybe a few other situations). This will allow you to keep your left foot on the brake so you can simulate heel and toe using both feet if you are not able to have your pedals spaced adequately for it.
I do this in most manual racers, (yes I run the manual clutch setting and have 3 pedals).
