    You can't see what other people use, but I know I use whatever gearbox the car has. I've got a few controller profiles setup for my G27 to match whatever the car demands :p I'm not sure if sequential is faster on a H shift car because there might be a time-delay in place to combat everyone using sequential.

    After you have chosen your preferences in the game' options - automatic or manual gear -
    I guess that 1978 Corvette John Greenwood is naturally set with H shifter, while Mercedes AMG GT3 is with sequential paddle shifter - respecting past and present real life specs.
    Not sure if one could set whatever car with sequential paddle shifter would be automatically faster,
    Anyway there are so many other points to get for a good and fast driving...
    For myself, I am happy to take the 78 Corvette totally manual with H shifter + clutch like this car has been thought, then a modern GT3 with paddles, it's about immersion and spirit.
    Some racers are really impressive (not me!), even we can't see what they use, I guess these ones are serious drivers, very fast using manual H shifter.

    By the way, is there a full list of the cars with H-pattern shifter enabled? Or the classic categories are homogenous in this matter? This question has just become relevant to me, so I didn't pay attention to it earlier.

    I thing the sim should only allow the adequate shifting method in the get real mode.

    The problem with that though, is that not everyone owns an H-Shifter. :)

    I don't have all the cars of R3E in my game, so I won't be able to give an exaustive list; but yes, I guess the classic categories are homogenous in this matter.
    Also, there is an interesting answer made by Christian Göpfert in this thread
    Hope it help.

    And absolute incompetence when it comes to Heel and toe shifting. Thats why i rarely use my Shifter for anything other than Truck driving.
    Would love to race around a track while ripping through the gears but i suck so that wont ever happen :p

    laziness! everything can be learned! :mad: stop with gt3 lady racers :mad:
    (there is a lot of irony here above ;) )

    by the way, heel and toe is not necessary. is good to be faster, but not necessary. even better to learn how to downshift without heel and toe, so the heel and toe became easier to understand.
