    Hmm... Paddle shifters at 4:25 and manual with clutch.

    Wonder how many sets of tires had to be used for this one video.

    Looks like fun though. I was waiting to hear the engine blow.

    6-spd sequential gearbox - the handle is his e-brake.

    Ken Block is an amazing driver, and these vids are entertaining to watch.

    I believe the sequential gearbox is similar to the Porsche Cup cars - upshifts don't need the clutch, but used for downshifts and to go from a start (and possibly to engage 1st)

    I was thinking paddle shifters like in the BMW M3 or F1 where there is no clutch pedal.

    99% sure F1 cars have a clutch because I'm pretty sure it's the same system this is.

    The BMW has a computer-controlled conventional manual transmission. (Actually it could be a paddle shifted automatic, either way same principle.) Ken's car has a dogbox, which is upshifted without the clutch but still launched with the clutch, that has paddle shifters. It's not quite the same thing, a dog box is not nearly civil enough for a street car like the BMW.

    Also, Ken Block is not an amazing driver, he's just good at handbrake turns. If he put this much effort into rallying, he might be as competitive as consistently as Pastrana or Comrie-Picard.

    I still have to learn how to work my paddle shifters properly and more efficiency. I'm not used to not having a clutch.

    It's been a while since motorbikes had a clutch pedal.

    I could quite easily be wrong on the F1 car.

    I do however know for sure that the Ford has a 6 speed dog box shifted with paddles rather than anything computerized. Number one reason is because a clutch pedal makes sliding around easier.

    They have multi-plate clutches just like regular race cars. Just that it's controlled by a computer rather than a human. Some paddle-shifter arrangements like Porsche's Tiptronic allows you to manually control a slush-box automatic transmission. In this case, there really isn't a clutch, just a fluid torque-converter.
