It works by shifting into Manual mode, and then you drive it like a automatic manual. If you want to change gears, you slide the gear level up or down. Its really not as crazy as I thought when I leased my Altima. Who knows, I may go manual actually use a clutch when i shift.

you know what else i noticed they replaced the Torque gauge in the 4-pack with tranny temp. wtf? lol
A lot of folks on this forum complained about the torque gauge, they hated it. I suspect the general reaction elsewhere was similar.

I think I'd like a torque gauge, but tranny temp is definitely way more useful if you have an automatic. OTOH, if you have the manual, tranny temp is pretty useless.

Can't be patent laws. The first generation Camaro had it. Even if it was patented then, the patent is expired now and nobody can re-patent it.

That's an interesting way to measure torque, I like it. The kid can probably patent that measurement method. However, the concept of displaying torque is not any newer than 1967 (probably much older).

My ScanGauge II can display torque as reported by GM's extensions to OBDII (it's horribly inaccurate; I think I need to tweak the code it uses).

Maybe I'm remembering that wrong...I could swear I read all about it being in the first gen.

If that's wrong, can anyone cite any other prior art that's more definitive than the Torque readout on my ScanGauge II?

I would have to see that to believe it. I imagine that was a gimmicky fake readout, the technology to get real-time readouts of the torque being applied to the drivetrain is not something that would have been imagined 40 years ago.

i'm getting the manual & i'd actually like to have a torque gauge (at least over a trans temp) for launching without the electronic assist

going back to the TAPSHIFT, i know it was said that you could shift from M to D at speed but, and this may be a stupid question or may have been answered, but can you go from D- M at speed as well?

dont see why you wouldnt be able to. it would just leave you in whatever gear you were in when you switched to M mode.
