Heh, me and my friend were having an argument. I showed him the ferrari pics posted by curiousgeorgeM3. He started saying that since its tap shift its gonna suck and so on. The reason its gonna "suck" is because "you can't skip gears", in other words you can't jump from 3rd down to 1st and vice versa. I told him not all transmissions are the same, and its really easy to make a tap shift be able to skip gears, like, have two positions on it. In other words pull it a bit and switch one gear, pull it further and switch another. My mountain bike has the same things, it can't be hard to do that in a $100k^ car. He goes on bitchin and saying it can't. In other words, him driving an automatic Grand Prix, and having a friend who drives a volvo with tap shift in it (which his friend barely uses, he on the other hand drove it once or twice) makes him an expert on automatics, stickshifts, and tapshifts. Also, what in the fuck is he talking about it being bad since you cant skip gears. I don't know about anyone else, but i've been driving a stick car (69' vette) for about a year till another fucked up friend killed it. I've raced ricer-boys on and off and I have NEVER came to a situation where I needed to skip gears. Besides coming to a stop, why would you need to do that? Also, were not talking about professional racing, only drag.
