Thanks, this is helpful advice, although I can't stop staring at the tachometer. You guys go by sound alone?
Just use your ears, turn the music down and listen for the engine note. On Manual that's it, if the engine note is too low, change down, if its either bouncing off the limiter or just about to, change up.
In real life, I have no interest in cars because I'm a big fat greenie. I'm in my 20s, I don't drive, and I never have. But this game is making me love cars
Anyway, today I'm going to try and figure out how to drive manually - I have been driving with all assists off, but I have been informed that its risible/pointless both to drive with no assists in the R classes and yet stick with manual transmission.
I REALLY wish there was a tutorial for this. Sigh, here goes...
