Sport mode v Dynamic?

Post by Weeble69 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 10:02 am

I’ve been playing with Sport mode and Dynamic mode....
In Sport the Rev hold and gear change seems very aggressive. How does this differ from Dynamic?

Dynamic changes the steering, suspension, gear shift and engine settings (which you can sort of tailor through the Dynamics screen - just setting them on or off, really). Select Dynamic and Sport for maximum fun!

BTW. in Sport you can manually shift with the gear stick as well as with the paddles (bet you didn't know that!). ;)

Just knock the gear selector away from you and off you go.

Tip, I always select a gear with the + paddle first - then it doesn’t decide to select a low gear and rev more than you want.
...unless of course you want to immediately drop a gear and disappear :D

Excellent tip about the gear shift on the stick. Here's me messing with the paddles which keep moving!

You just have to forget that stuff about "feeding the wheel" we were taught way back when! ;)

Just be aware that if you are in dynamic mode AND gear stick knocked to the left IE Sport mode AND using paddles the car will NOT change up at the rev limiter!!

The gear indicator displaying gear will turn white warning you as you approach near to max revs and will flash as well if you got the limiter or beyond.

Don't forget to change gear!! :o

It will automatically downshift for you, though, if the speed drops too low for the current gear.
And in Sport you can use the gear shift instead of the paddles. ;)
