we Leave “mixer“ to museums

Personally for me there was unexpectedness that the titled race drivers with whom I could communicate, in an everyday life, as a rule, prefer “automatic machine“. MKPP dies off and soon remains only on the most brutal off-road cars and - they in it are convinced of a segment of low budget cars. Moreover, assure that the most innovative boxes allow to go both in a comfortable economic mode, and with excellent sports dynamics with which be dispersed on “handle“ can unless the racer-professional.

MKPP - archaism? The author.
Thus competently to be switched on MKPP only insignificant number us is able, the usual drivers even possessing the long-term experience of driving - about it it is literally in a voice instructors of eminent schools of driving repeat. The wrong choice of drive, occurrence in turning movement on neutral, braking with the pressed clutch pedal is, alas, norm for the majority. Remember, how “skilled“ drivers learnt us to roll in a youth from hills, switching off drive to save fuel! And the statements extended till now that “chopper“ tupit », and« on “handle“ I will tear any », as a rule, with excessive bravado are afforded, to put it mildly, by only immodest drivers, not tried anything it is better than a usual“slow“4-step hydrotransformer automatic transmission.

and more argument: in the fourth Absolute dreg-fight in the middle of Russia past year in Krasnoyarsk the best time in Russian drege (result - 8,702 seconds!) Showed all-wheel drive Toyota Soarer 1995, piloted by Maria Panovoj. How think, what box by that car? “Automatic machine“! So, we leave “mixer“ to museums?!
