Hi, I'm wondering if any one can help me understand about the manual gear ratio. This question is not specific to Impreza, but I didn't know who to ask.
I've been reading up on altering gear ratio in order to improve performance and/or accleration, but I have a hard time understanding what that really means for me in everyday driving. How would my car respond differently now that for example, a manual transmission with 4 gears vs more closely designed 6 gears seen nowadays in some cars? Is close ratio manual transmission or more gears always better? Can any one help me out here?
