"REV MATCHING is a driving technique for shifting a manual transmission smoothly. One simply memorizes approximately how many RPMs different the various gears are from one another at the same speed, and then matches the engine's revs with the gear they are shifting in to. When upshifting, you just let the revs drop and slip into gear. When downshifting, you tap the throttle (or stomp on it depending on how long it takes to rev up.) This is often referred to as 'blipping' it. This works easily primarily because of the syncromesh gears in your transmission; if your transmission does not have them, this is very, very difficult to do without grinding. Even so, it takes the right touch."
I'm a computer guy (i.e. I'm lazy) so every time I look at a task I think to myself "why can't the computer just do it for me?".
With drive-by-wire throttles I think it should be possible for the ECU to do the rev matching for you, right? I don't think it would even require any added hardware (except maybe a button to disable it when you're doing burnouts).
I guess this has nothing to do with the zx2 since we have a mechanically controlled throttle, but this is the only car site I belong to so I'm posting it here.
Am I crazy or does it make sense?
