New "California" with double clutch system ?
I've read that the new "California" uses a double clutch system, which put's gear change time to "0"(nil). First I believe that any mechanical system needs a certain time to interact within its parts to produce a functioning, but nevertheless I would like to put this gearchange speed in relative comparison to, lets say, the Scuderia's 60 milliseconds. After all, is this a new time measuring of mechanical interaction, which is not comparable to standard gear changing or else ?
Unfortunately, I have no mechanical ingeneering background, therefore is it possible, that somebody could explain to me the exact functioning of a double clutch system ?
