Hello guys!

Can someone explain me what is the cause of this canned mechanical noise when downshifting?

I always wondered why every car in pCARS has that noise.. :p

Thay would be the gearbox slamming into the next gear. It would do that on both up and down shifts.

I'm pretty sure there are no 'canned' sounds in any of the player cars. All physics driven in tandem with real life high quality recordings.

when the ford ecoboost dp from the TUSCC comes to the game youd be wondering what that noise is under braking.

the thing is that each car has their own unique sounds that make it sound correct to each car.

You're talking about the transmission sound, right? They sound alike because there are few manufacturers that make those transmissions, like Zf, Albin, Elcon, Ricardo. Those transmissions have this common noise due to series limitations and the straight gear teeths.

You're implying that this car is coming to Project CARS.

So I ask again, how would you know this?

you can argue this if you want, i am already done with it. and imply what you like if it helps, i know what my intention was and it isnt what your thinking.

He meant IF the car comes, and I think you've got that, at second glance at least.

Proper grammer is key.

On the Zonda R in your clip, it sounds like exhaust pops, not a mechanical noise. When the revs change during shifting, unburnt fuel is shot out through the exhaust system and ignites there, causing popping and sometimes quite loud bangs.
I have the same in my real life Porsche, it's definately not a mechanical sound. When I accelerate hard and upshift, it sounds like a gunshot. When I downshift from high revs, it's like fireworks... I'm pretty sure it sounds even more spectacular in a Zonda! :D

Spelling is pretty important too.

spelling is alright for important things, but this is a casual place to chat about gaming, not causing a run around and offering no reason why.

you also notice it when it gets dark in racing when a car downshifts, you notice the car backfiring unburned fuel, same in a formula car as well. sometimes spectacular to watch some cars with their exhaust systems on the side of the car churning out flames.

I see! I was curious because all the cars in pCARS shares the same sound effect for that :)

Or did I do that on purpose? :playful:
