Tell that to the huge "room full" of engineers that designed your 328i...

They went into some minutiae in such amazingly diverse fields of science and engineering that it would truly make your head spin. Even more so if the basics here about shift points do... You benefit from their work each and every time you step into your car. Whether or not you can appreciate these complex, intricate and beautiful concepts is an entirely separate issue, of course...

There is content here on m3post.com well beyond this. Many appreciate and participate in such content.

To each their own, I guess.

No one is forcing you to read this thread. There is context for these discussions that does not require your attention. If you don't like our discussion you don't have to stay. Post in a less technical thread.

No need for that. This is part of an elaborate courting ritual. Just stay back and let it unfold.

Haha.

Truth be told, neither of them are wrong per se (swamp may disagree with me :P). The argument is over the nitty gritty details and who's method is "better" (more accurate, realistic, etc.) at determining what the optimal shift points are.

There is nothing wrong with some heated debate.

I am not sure I fully comprehend Jonjt's full argumentation, but from what I understand, I believe both swamp and Jonjt are right.

To calculate optimum shift points, you can either plot resultant tractive force vs road speed or available power vs road speed for each gear. When the lines cross between gears, it is the optimal shift point (the RPM needs to be back calculated from the road speed and gear ratio). If the lines don't cross, you shift at redline.

As swamp points out, estimating parasitic losses in the process will improve the precision of the result for both methods.

I think they are both good guys and probably ought to just agree to disagree.

I think this will be a key point in figuring the actual performance of the F8X. On the F1X M5/M6, the DCT ratios were clearly not established for maximum performance. However, if on the F8X, the DCT allows keeping the revs always in the power plateau (which most likely means short shifting every gear as Swamp mentions), it will be a hell a of a performer .

I wonder if BMW will adjust gear ratios with some thought for fuel economy and not just performance.

Invite some friends and then roast marshmellos over what is left of the DCT. Make a day of it.

I am very curious if it turns out that swamp2 overestimated rpm dependent parasitic losses for the f8x (to force his point that turbo engines are inferior and always need to be short shifted) or his (from my perspective) rather pessimistic approximation is (annoyingly) absolutely correct (again).

Keep going, guys!

Not quite. If you have reliable dyno information (which anyone in the know will admit is pretty much a non-sequitur) losses are not needed. For my process, losses absolutely are required for the calculation. My calculation is almost entirely a-priori (no test data required).

I never said that turbo engines are either inferior or always need to be short shifted. Also the numbers are not entire "my" numbers they have been gleaned from both defaults in the software, the literature, papers and books (which of course is based on testing) and a small bit of curve fitting. That along with tons of validation efforts on predicted vs. simulated performance results. Either way the numbers are the same I used for the majority of my E9X M3 simulations. I did not purposefully make the numbers larger to reflect personal engine biases. That would be massive scientific dishonesty. Cheers.

Agreed if we have chassis dyno results. All we have now is bench dyno plots.

Another reason why I like the more purely a-priori type of calculation.

You do need test data though. Those initial dyno graph need to come from somewhere
