You can't brake torque a manual. plain and simple.Fraggle said:How about that guy that just said rev it up in neutral and drop it into drive?
I've been thinking about that... other than frying your clutch, it would seem somewhat effective? I mean come on, its the exact same gearbox as the manual, with the exact same pressureplate/clutch/flywheel... why not?
You have to modulate the throttle yourself and get used to the timing but...
Although someone in the thread said that is not possible to do with SMG, that the car won't shift out of neutral like that...
Back on thread so I'm not a total hijack... Torque braking (by the SMG's design) would not give you any noticeable improvement, and would probably just help your clutch to an early grave.
It would be just like trying to torque brake an manually clutched 6-speed:tsk:

Coming from Reverse right into 1st I have done. but if you let it sit in Neutral for more than 2 seconds, it locks.mattman said:I have revved the engine alittle in 0 to 1 gear with SMG with no issues..
I do this usually from going from Reverse to 1st gear.. So I think it's possible to rev the engine in 0 and slide the lever to 1st gear but I haven't tried it where it's revving past 2000 and i'm flooring when I put it in gear..
With Sport Mode and DSC off, I can get pretty damn good launches so I haven't felt the need to "drop" the clutch into gear while the engine speed is high.
