Wasn't sure if this should go in the V3 or the street racing forum. This is my first auto fast car. I was playing around with it today a bit. First off, I already know the paddles are useless and I plan on letting the car do the shifting, but I need to lock it in a gear obviously. It seems if you use the paddles to downshift, for some reason you need to press the M on the shifter twice after you hit it to get back in auto mode. Any wheelspin further complicates this it seems. If I hit the M, then select the gear I need, hit it, then press M once before redline, I'm on my way. So this is what I've been doing. Is there a better way or am I missing anything? I read something about blipping the throttle above 60ish percent while in track mode to get the trans to downshift to the proper gear in the C7 A8s.
