....just like the automatic GT86 I test drove, in pCars you can force a shift up or down even in AUTO!

I don't think it works in every car. Maybe just newer 'flappy paddle' ones...

Even in AUTO ? Do you mean even in manual clutch mode ? ;)

Don't know if is relevant but due to my poor driving skills, I use Auto clutch and Auto gearchange. I have assigned Gear Up & Down to the 2 flappy paddles on my DFGT and I can manually change up or down while in auto gearchange mode. I find it helps me to not lose as much time in gear changing as I would if I relied on the Auto setting having complete control. If I use Manual gearchange i tend to redline the gears too much because I am looking at the track and not the Revs !!!

Don't look at the revs, listen to them and change gears by ear!

No. When I'm too lazy to change all the gears, I put it into Automatic [plus auto clutch] but can still click my left paddle and FORCE it to temporarily drop a gear, every now and then.
