Shifter thread?Shifter thread.Here's mine.
what's wrong with you
wow they saved so much space!
>>26453381Shifter? I barely know her!!
>>26453381>No feedback between the gear selection>Have to look to see which letter is lit up and hope the light never burns out
>>26453518>feedback>when modern automatic transmissions are all electronically controlled There's also only like 4-5 positions that lock in with a click, and cars have shown what position you're in on the instrument cluster since the 90s
>>26453560Feedback is important in emergency situations so you shift correctly and don't do something like park when you want to reverse quickly
>>26453682It has a long throw and a tactile mechanical click for each position, how much more feedback is needed?>nah bro I totally get more feedback with a mechanically actuated autotragic!One of the most common complaints of an 8th gen Accord was that it was way too easy to overshoot what position you wanted to be in with it's mechanically actuated automatic
what cars/trucks come with comically large boots
>>26453496why tf yall not laughing
This is the best board for shitposting.
>>26453381Honestly looks kind of stupid but it's actually surprisingly ergonomic compared to my old car's (2008 qasqhai)
>>26453381had to stretch the boot goatse style and now the coathanger frame i made for it actually stays secure in the clips on the underside of the shifter surround
>>26455965Man this pic brought back some memories.
>>26453381That's a selector.
>>26453381imagine not having a big bulbous dildo to fondle constantly while you drive. Do automatic drivers even enjoy coc- i mean driving?
>>26455971from the weekend wrenching thread? cuz i posted about it there too lel
>>26453381Shifter threads are nice and all but you make this exact same thread with the exact same picture and the exact same text multiple times a month, do you mind switching it up?
>>26456026>paradigm SHIFT DENIED
>>26456026>multiple times a monthmaybe i missed out but this is the first time i've seen it in a while
>>26456000No, from whatever car my dad had 25 years ago
>>26454258>ergonomic>automaticFor what purpose?
Should I buy one of those dildo shifters?
>>26456254Interior ergonomics, retard. You don't have a pointless gear selector protruding out of the center console for no reasonThey should take it a step farther and move the knob the the dash itself and free up even more center console space
Women prefer dials in their cars because its like operating their washing machine
>>26456316why have a big dial when you can have buttons?
>>26456675I think i remember you, aren't you the guy with the cool headliner?
>>26453381>Shifter thread?You mean the PRNDL lever?
>>26456741What is a ‘Prindle” level anyway?
>>26456751Pringles are potato crisps (condensed) but prindles are boiled, molded, and dried.
>>26456751Sorry I don't think I answered your question. Prindle level refers to thickness.
>>26456715Hunting and pecking for buttons doesn't feel as nice as a dial. Only thing that ever felt half decent were the fuck huge toggles on new Lincolns
>>26457267Uh it's an automatic you press it once to shift into drive, you don't need 'tactile feedback' it's just a switch
>>26457297Tactile feedback of a stick or dial tells you you're progressing gears so you can count in your head without looking.
>>26457367>cant count to threeyou probably shouldn't be driving
>>26457377How are you supposed to count positions without looking down when there's no feedback, you retarded nigger mutt
>>26453381not mine but the same stick
>>26457489>press drive >d appears on the dash >press r>r appears on the dash >press p >p appears on the dash why do you need to count anything?
>>26456741>leverIt's clearly a dial, dummy.
>>26457572>without looking down
Its a comfy cruiser.>inb4 "It's not a real E30 if it's not a manual
>>26457986uhh the buttons don't move retard
>>26457996It's not a real E30 if it's not a manual
>>26457986Drove this shitter for years never looked down, says what gear you're in on the dash and it's an auto so i dont care anyway
>>26458034But does it have buttons for the gear selector?
>>26458001what if you hit a speed bump genius?
>>26457572>presslmao even. the absolute state of button pressers. this isn't your factory job sweetheart.
>>26458158Ok so you've never driven a car
>>26458171I don't drive a car 10 mph like some pussy grandma. I drove fast and I brake hard. I need a shifter that can keep up with my hard driving lifestyle, faggot.
>>26456254Ergonomic as in I don't have to pull it in an awkward position like the qasqhai which has a putton that you need to press and the shifter was uncomfortable to hold. This is as simple as it goes just a lever that you pull/push
>>26458194i looked up the 08 qashqai auto shifter, it goes in L line - PRND on the straight, then a semi-auto mode at the bend, at least for a rhd part.it can't possibly be that bad? this aetup is basically 90% of auto shifter layouts
>>26458235My current one is exactly the same the setup is fine the stick itself is just not comfortable to use since you have a button you need to press which is set kind of low and the shape of the know is neither a stick nor a ball but something in between. I am not sure how to describe it it's just that switching is not very ergonomic which is a nitpick but it get's on your nerves after awhile. Pretty good gearbox though I sold it last autumn and it hasn't had a single problem which is rare for Nissan
>>26458542oh right, yeah i can understans after looking at the shape. have only ever driven older toyotas and their shifters were quite ergonomic, save for the ones with the rear-facing overdrive button.>it hasn't had a single problem which is rare for Nissanand in a qashqai too no less
>>26458564Yeah that's what I meant no clue what they were thinking, Peugeot kept it simple even though it looks like a robodildo>and in a qashqai too no lessYeah, I have no clue if they just put decent transmissions on the first models even though they used CVTs or I was just extremely lucky
So stupid question, but i'm gonna buy a 88' sentra b12 from a guy tomorrow on the nearest city (50km away) and i can only drive autotragic, what are the odds i'l burn the clutch? I saw a lot of videos and probably will practice on a parking lot for a half an hour or so, but is this a bad or a horrible idea? Shit is a deal for me as the car is only 400 bucks and shit like a nice, billet shortshifter for this car is around 130 bucks (as if i knew what a shortshifter is making for me anyways)
>>26458752i manual swapped my car just before christmas last year. with a brand spanking new clutch too, it was pretty interesting trying to learn manual. gear changes werent a problem at all, the biggest one was getting going from a stop due to the insanely narrow bite point.took about three days getting the hang of it before i became much more consistent. also took me a while to learn to fully depress the clutch when i stalled. stalling quickly went from panic to 'lol oops gimme a sec'i had to relearn the bite point when the clutch finally bedded in. became significantly more forgiving after that.
>>26457996Doea this only have 3 gears? Autocucks I...
>>26458752>what are the odds i'l burn the clutch?Just be careful, don't mash the throttle.
>>26458752avoid hills you might stop on for trip back and don't stomp throttle and you'll be alright
>>26453381Nice clit shifter fag
linkage is for fags
>>26459045>>26459540>>26459854Thanks anons, i got it yesterday and didn't die, scariest thing was rhis thing needs to be on fifth to reach 62 mph so it can barely keep up with the other cars on the highway, i already ordered a nice mustang style shifter for it and a cloth boot as it has a crappy, dried out plastic one currently, i'll post the before and after when i get it; i also took it to walmart for some groceries and only stalled it 2 times just outside my house and on the parking lot
>>26457267i like the Lincoln buttons, they are like piano keys.
>>26459539probobly only 4-5 gears, older automatics seem to thing you needed to use very specific low range gears when towing or something. modern autos are 8-10 speeds and will do all of the work for you unless you have paddle shifters to override the current gear choice.
>>26456715>L±>buttons>this far from driverThis is extremely retarded and dangerous
>>26456675best in thread>>26458930second best
>>26453381If you can't hire a lot lizard to pole dance on your shifter you ain't doin it right
>tractor has more modest shifter than cars
>>26453959My dad's Toyota Pickup had a high boot. Looked goofy desu.
>>26463499Redbubble zoomer fag
>>26456724Soon-to-be the guy with the cool headliner. I'm waiting until its the right time to go full restomod mode on the Rio. I haven't narrowed down the headliner pattern I want. I'd have to have a matching color on the A/B/C pillars to match.
>>26464620you wouldn't want a 4 ft tall cane shifter for an electrically shifted transmission, would you?
>>26458188>I need a shifter that can keep up with my hard driving lifestyle, faggot.Translation: "I need a shifter to validate my existence while also driving like a shitass to stick it to people who drive cars with auto transmissions."
