How it Works Features Rev Match System Honda Civic Type R
The Honda Civic Type R is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission that transmits engine power to the front wheels. To support the performance and sensation of changing manual gear, the Honda Civic Type R features the Rev Match System.
The main function of the Rev Match System is to equalize the engine speed automatically when the driver changes gear up or down. This will clearly provide comfort to the driver when he likes to change gears without having to experience a jolt of distress.
When the driver changes gears, the engine power connection, and the gearbox will be disconnected when the driver steps on the clutch pedal. However, when changing gears down, the engine must be turned faster so that the gearshift does not feel jerky.
The driver can do the heel-n-toe technique to “blip” the gas pedal so that the engine speed is in sync with the gear rotation. Well, the Rev Match System feature actually changes the role of heel-n-toe when the driver changes gears.
This new Honda Civic feature works using data from the sensor on the clutch pedal, the neutral position sensor, and the transmission rev sensor.
When the driver steps on the clutch and moves the transmission to neutral, data from the clutch pedal, rev sensor, and transmission position enters the ECU. Then when a downshift is detected, the ECU processes the data into a signal that tells the engine to “blip” automatically. The result is that the downward gearshift becomes smoother and the engine power becomes faster ready for use.
This feature also helps the driver stay focused on driving without having to do heel-n-toe.
