    So Grant,

     

    Can you report yet on pulling out of uphill 2nd gear corners?


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Not Grant, but I'll say it depends on how fast this corner is.  If you are only going 20mph and the uphill is severe, then it can feel a bit sluggish until revs get to 4.5k or above . In those situations, a downshift to 1st is worthwhile.  With rev match, pretty easy to get into 1st, though it's not as easy as 2nd.  

    On a leisurely drive on say "The Snake" / Mulholland (you may be familar with this road), I don't really feel the need to use 1st even though the turns are super tight.  But that's also because I don't use much power on such a road.

    Still haven't received my car stateside.  In Swiss Alps, I actually used 1st gear for some of the steep uphill switchbacks (double clutch downshifts - combo of manual blip in neutral and auto-rev into 1st).

    2nd gear is about 10.5 mph per 1,000 rpm - so 2nd gear is much too tall for that (use 1st instead).  Motor doesn't really come alive until 4,500 rpm (47 mph in 2nd).

    Re: Cayman GT4

    My car arrived at dealer 2 days ago (not the dealer from whom I bought it - out of state).  Was going to sit on the extra parking lot indefinitely - glad I called today.  Pick it up tomorrow, but dropping it for a clear bra immediately (snow coming on Saturday).  Won't get to drive it til next week at earliest...

    I'm thinking las flores canyon steep uphill hairpin [or piuma] 15 mph exit speed on water and or gravel over pavement -- the classic place all the pre-991 GT3's bogged down in 2nd, and the classic place that made strads and scuds so well geared and so much fun.  I cant find the shift speeds for gt4 anywhere -  what is redline mph in 1st gear?  Im presuming one can run first to 60 mph+ then shift to 2nd around 5k like we did on the old GT3's until we got sick of it Smileyand bought another scud.Smiley  I do see max torque starts at 4750 which ties with yours and Grant's liftoff mid-4's....

    You'll definitely want to briefly down-shift to 1st for that (I recommend my combo Manual-Auto double-clutch method).  First gear redlines at 47 mph.

    Do you really have to do all that to get it in 1st smoothly ? this sound from another age . Even on a non automatic rew matching car I manage to get into first quite smoothly just by heal toeing ( or just manual new matching ) Ok, on some of the boxes the change is a little slow as you can't push the 1st gear in too quickly because it is harder . 

    But on the Gt4 gearbox , the auto rev matching is supposedly  there to make the gear drop a piece of butter and instant Smiley

    Congrats WAY - 3 month wait for shipping, that's a seriously long wait. Is it a very slow boat indeed, must have made several stop offs en route.

    So how many rennteamers so we have now have with a delivered car?

    It will go into first gear with the Auto-Rev match alone, but at anything over very slow speeds, it goes in much smoother with a double-clutch (much less work for the synchros).

    Sorry for the confusion...matching the Cayman GT4... Smiley The GT cars from Porsche benefit from flashy colors, especially pastel colors.
