    @Diamondback has the shift logic changed to where the parameter ( "shiftEfficiency":1.00, ) is ignored in 0.15?

    For example a 1500 HP engine transmission is cutting power to ~300 hp on every shift. on older versions with that parameter set to 1.00. it used to power through every shift.

    Interesting. Wonder what could be causing it.

    I noticed some weird shake in all cars with manual transmission after 0.14 update. It happens when you clutch kick and spin the wheels, also all the needles on the gauge cluster start shaking while spinning the wheels. For me it's really annoying and wish they can fix it. I'm on version 0.13.0.5 and I won't update to 0.15 until it's fixed.

    on which base game vehicles are the needles shaking?
    Or are you talking about RPM gauge and speedometer jumping up when you clutch kick, which is normal, and real life cars do that as well - Try flooring a FWD car on ice in 5th gear, I managed to get a 75hp megane to read over 200km/h while actually going like 20km/h. It's caused by the speedometer reading from the transmission output, which means the faster your output shaft is spinning, the higher value will the speedometer show. If I recall correctly in BeamNG it's using average wheel speed rather than trans output.
    Cars shaking after clutch kick might be caused by really grippy tires and lack of required stabilization or badly tuned suspension - In real life it is called "Wheel hop"

    I noticed this after 0.14 too. Was kind of surprised the cars did that, especially when they had a solid axle. Turns out, it's just wheel/axle hop which adds even more realism

    I have noticed it a few times in first gear but as for at speed I tend to bang shift it so full throttle and then slam it into gear and I dont notice the drop as much for me, or I do notice it and ignore it

    I know what is wheel hop and I know how car speedometer works.
    The problem is the whole car starts shaking like crazy which is not realistic at all. Try putting a NOS in RWD manual car, for example ETK-K series and you will see what I mean
