Just tried applying more throttle before manual gear shifts under steady driving conditions and have to agree the gearbox seems to change almost instantly so thanks for the tipThe gearbox in the FL RS3 is awesome. I had the DQ250 in my A3 Sedan previously, this is miles better.
Regarding some things. I drive permanently in Manual mode so this is all only relating to that.
The gear changes under very light throttle load are slower. Easy, adapt by slightly pushing down on the throttle just a moment before you want to change gears and the car will instantly snap change the gear. I have adapted to this and the process does not make the car any more jerky ore anything if the throttle input is careful. The car WILL change gears instantly any time I want it to, and if I want it to, it will take a moment, all dependant on throttle position, so YOU might need to adapt to the gearbox rather than the other way around.
I used to have issues (again this is ME not the GB) down-changing a few gears, but if its done at the right RPM I can go from 5th to 2nd like a formula 1 car if I time the down-shifts properly, this is another thing you need to adapt to.
There is also a trick, if you are in a high gear like 5th for eg, and you want to downshift a few gears, if you HOLD the left paddle the car will INSTANTLY change down to 3rd or 2nd right at an optimal powerband RPM, and likewise if you are in 2nd or so and you want to cruise and you HOLD the right paddle it will shift up to something like 5th gear for cruising. Its a really good trick, go and try it.
Also turning TC to sport (didn’t know you could do this) is a big help thanks @AudiNutta for putting me onto this
Grip around corners is immense
Any more driving tips?
