    ... when comparing paddle shifters.

    I just put the F430 Challenge paddle shifters (Thanks Kuzi). Huge improvement.

    The stock Scuderia paddles are very hard to find when I'm busy with the steering wheel.

    Stock paddles are 3.5" long (around 9 cm). The Challenge paddles are 8.5" long (almost 22 cm)

    This is how they look.

    I found interesting that the F1 transmission shifting is so fast, but I was spending more time trying to find the paddles.

    I don´t get it, never had problems on track with either 360, 430 or the laps I did in the scud to find the paddles, although I prefer the CS paddles.

    I´ts not like you change gears while turning so sharp ? If you need to shift when changing direction, just do it when you pass 12 o´clock with the wheel.

    If you think the scuds paddles are smll, try out a Gallardo´s paddles...
