View Thread: Grated shifters


Mr.Dave
I've never used one. Any of you out there ever drive a car with a grated gearbox? What's it like? Are they only on Italian cars? Do I have anymore dumb questions?












Nope :)

Whats a grated gearbox??:?:

Mr.Dave
I guess that's how you spell it.... or how i've heard it, I could be wrong. It's the manual on (what I've seen) Italian cars.

91 Integra
He means gated shifters.

I've never driven one, but they sure do look fun! :D

HAHAHAHA!!!

Hey look everyone it's Jimmy the retard!!

"Hey you guys... grated shifters, thank you very much"

"Gated" makes a hell of a lot more sense. Thank you.

hehe, anyone seen the Italian cars that have a gearbox like so:\


1 3 5
R 2 4

I could swear Ferrari's pulled that trick atleast once. Scary how someone not thinking would try to rip down from first to 2nd, only to discover you're screwed after the tranny leaps out of your car, :banghead:

Mr.Dave
Awe, you even included a picture featuring my stupidity... how sweet! :)

Never seen those, but practically every Italian sports car has 6 gears now so it's not an issue.

R 1 3 5
2 4 6

Arg, that's supposed to be with the 2 4 6 moved over under the 135 but it won't do it.

SLP Addict
Ummmmm, dont the 01 zx3 focus's have those?

CLK-GTR
R 2 4
1 3 5



The F40 has this arrangement. i didnt realise at first, but when i was in my dads mates one i was sitting there thinking why is he pulling off in 2nd, then i wondered where reverse was, then it clicked about how the gears were arranged.

Imagine trying to teach someone on a config like that if it existed?


Student: "What do you mean it's $6000 for this training class?"
Teacher: "Well we expect you to go through at least one transmission this class sir. It's only prudent to charge you first."

That's how the gearboxes are on Ferrari F355 Challenge, and that's supposted to be extremely realisitic (good reason why people didn't like it).

That game is hard as hell. The arcade machine has eaten many of my hard earned dollars. I've pretty well given it up for the drifting fun of Initial D.

masestylez
Never played Initial D, the ultimate money waster if Ferrari F355 Challenge on HARD mode with all the helpers turned off and using the built in 6 speed. Every game is a dollar a pop too. Is Initial D pretty fun?
