Pic related happened.The red line is me, at above-average male height, who has DD'd manuals non-stop since '05.
Because autos are faster and no one who buys these cars new buys manuals anymore. The only exception to this has been the 911 GT3 where they brought back the manual, but the GT3 RS is still PDK onlyAlso>9 speed DCTWhy do lesser manufacturers insist on spend potentially hundreds of millions on designing, developing, and manufacturing their own autos for FR applications when they'll still get mogged by the ZF8? There's a reason why BMW is still using the ZF8 damn near 15 years later and setting lap records with ithttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzIyoYF5JB0
>>27026167zf8 = torque converted automatic
>>27026176And it's the best god damn transmission out of anything that isn't a PDK>hurr durr the DCT in my hand me down Hyundai shitbox is better because DCT
^kek fucking ricer
>>27026180pdk is automatic too
>>27026176>>27026180Nigger trans will strip gears if the car runs out of power. What trans can't do a 1000ms 3 gear downshift now? For me its the 7gtronic.
>>27026164You should eat more skeletonbro
>>27026193Pdk is a cope. You will never drive a pneumatic sequential. GTD cars still use manual. Pdk is just programmed to give you feels not experience.
>>27026198Nah hes like asian and 5'3. He dd'd every single miata and s2k in the world. >>27026164POC=/=american btw gook
>>27026193And better than manual trash
>>27026206wtf is a automatic dude kys, as soon as i see automatic shift lever i dont even care to drive it, no matter what the car.
>>27026211>that grammar 3rd worlder cope lmfao
>haha youre copingdude kys, there will never be a slushbox worth driving. pdk is trash too
>>27026205I'm white, blue eyed, and 5'10. At 140-145 lbs that puts me at the ideal healthy weight.I've DD'd manuals for about 20 years (30-70 min commutes each way, sometimes in major cities) and it's easy as shit. I do it because I enjoy it.My point is is that too many people are lazy as shit and would rather 'flex' to randos than have fun, so the few of us that still enjoy the physical realm just for pleasure get screwed.
>>27026226for me its that annoying drone increase when an automatic performs the shifts for you.
>>27026157But it comes available in a manual?
>>27026222>dude kys, there will never be a slushbox worth driving. pdk is trash too
>let me tell you about this torque converted automatic
>>27026222What the last car you bought brand new with a manual transmission?
>>27026236nismo is auto only
I've never been so hyped and then immediately let down by a car than this. Was saving up for it and everything but just ended up getting a Mustang
>>27026683Well thats bizarre. >Nismo Well its probably just suspension components and flashy trim bits, who cares.
Not sure why amerilards love automatic so much. Maybe cause they just wageslave in traffic everyday.
>>27026868I’m of the belief that it isn’t an organic movement, that there is a desire to continue to erode at self sufficiency and agency in the US. Automatics will give away to self driving vehicles. Eventually you won’t have control of where you go which is hilarious seeing that automobiles were originally created for that purpose.
>>27026157I have to wonder, beyond the F tier bait of "hur dur American can't push lever", if it's for production reasons. Auto makers are reliant on OEM's for a huge chunk of their parts now, so it may be that the cost of securing and stocking those manual transmissions isn't worth the potential profit. The simplicity of having only a single gearbox on the production line must really shave off quite a few pennies, and also make logistics easier to manage. Obviously this may only be one side of the coin, but considering a single redundant bolt can be a contentious topic for the bean counters, I don't think it's too far fetched to assume that it could be a logistical reason.
>>27026955Forgot to finish my first thought that there may be pressure from the gearbox manufacture to stop using what they consider "obsolescent" parts (as in the case of ZF and Ferrari fighting over hydraulic power steering) so they can focus their floorspace and manufacturing efforts on what actually makes them money.
>>27026226>5'10">above average american heightIve got some bad news for you bro
>>27026197cope technobabble horseshit from a wrenchlet>strip gearsimpossible>engine runs out of powerliterally doesn't make senseAlso I know you you're crying about the ZF6 you dumb faggot go be retarded elsewhere.
>>27026226problem is you don't have any muscle and every other weight class will knock you the fuck out.
>>27026164>5'10 142lbok skeleton thanks for your input
>>27026164kek 140 is fat too. I only fit girls
>>27026676He will never reply, since buying new is probably for suckers who just eat up whatever slop is available and the only true way to influence the market is to buy secondhand 15 years down the line
>>27026198>>27027202you think that's skeleton, pffft>t. 5'7" 130 lb and lost weight from high school without ever setting foot in a gym or working out
>>27026157The more I see thing car the more I want one.
>>27026157normal car people can't afford this car. rich fags who can do not want manual
>>27026157>too shitty>too expensive>"hur durr let's kill the low take rate options to reduce BOM cost hurr" Nissan is doomed. They should put that Brazilian back into a musical instrument box and ship straight to the top floor of Nissan HQ.
automatics are for women, always have been, the amount of coping sⲟybⲟys keeps growing though
Nissan lost the plot completely. They should have made the nismo manual only
>>27028084The Z has bigger issues than the Nismo being auto only, like Nissan's complete inability to make the damn thing in any meaningful numbers
>>270261571) Cars are designed by "product analysts" that only see them as a spreadsheet compared to other spreadsheets with the intent to maximize sales and minimize costs. Nothing is designed by actual enthusiasts anymore.2) The only people that can afford it are geriatrics that can't operate a clutch pedal because it makes their gout flare up.
>>27026164So you've been 145lbs since 1960?boomer
>>27027278Smol and fuckable
automatic = gay
>>27026157Who buys Nissan z cars. I've never seen a white person driving one of those. Maybe a Datsun but not a 350 or 370. Literally never once seen it. The only people alive who can still drive stick are very rare white guys who probably have a wrx, GTI, focus st, bmw, Audi or civic si and that's it. Or if they don't have a tech job but they do wear new balances with long white socks, they drive a Corvette. That's why they don't make sick shifts anymore. Because there aren't enough drivers left to justify making a compatible manual transmission set up for the engine.
>>27029224Wrong. Go be slow somewhere else
>>27029230kys fucking ricer
>>27029233Ricer? Aren't ricers one of the core demographics for circlejerking slow manuals?
>>27026955Considering TREMECs entire business is just manual transmissions there really isn’t an excuse from that angle.
>>27026157Are you the same schitzo from that other thread? In what universe are these auto only? Base model comes with a 6 speed, sport.
>>27026157You couldn't afford the monthly on it anyways.
>>27029330I think OP means the nismo trim
>>27029353Ooooooohh, that's pretty retarded if you can't just swap out a transmission that's already on the option for the car
>>27029259No idea what TREMEC's deal is, but you can count on one hand the number of "foreign" cars that made use their transmissions. The only time Nissan ever used them was in the 300ZX, I think. Other than that, it's only USDM cars and oddball low-volume cars like TVR's that use them. Again, probably a logistical thing.
>>27029353Ah, well that fucks up my theory of logistical problems. GG Nissan, ya done goofed.
>>27029379It’s simple, Nissan fears the Aztec transmission.
>>27026164I'm 6'1 and a 225 fat fuck who DDs a manual P10 G20. What's your point brodie?
>>27027278>t. 5'7" 130 lb and lost weight from high school without ever setting foot in a gym or working outI'm that 142 lb guy. I'm fucking ripped and have never, ever been to a gym or lifted weights. I'm in my mid-30s and get carded for alcohol every time. Genetics and manual labor.
>>27029545They card you because they have to.
>>27029545>142 lbs>rippedLol, next time you think being skelly is a flex, count how many men passing by on the street could hold you down and rape you. Also your car is slow.
>>27029545>I'm in my mid-30sI'm older by a few decades. But I still feel like I'm 19.19 stone.
>>27029536I'll tell you what I'm 6 2 225 and getting in my s13 is a long drop. It's roomy enough but forget using the back seat.
>>27026157Nissan is 10 years behind everyone else, that's why while Toyota is putting a manual in the Supra, which now makes half of the Supras being sold, they're giving the "it's faster" when everyone who cared about that became EVfags
