I have an automatic AMG.

I have an automatic AMG. I engine brake by spamming the downshift paddle, basically keeping it at 5.5k rpm until I'm stopped.
Is this bad for the car?

    It'll be OK I've done this on all my flappie autos. Have had them for years. I don't do 5.5 but yeah I do it to 3.5 some. 1 downshift T W O THREE 2 downshift T W O THREE 3 downshift

    Like that
    If you have a ZF you'll be ok. I do mine on Densos in Hondas and they're fine.

      >3.5 some
      But then you miss out on all the orgasmic exhaust/engine noise
      >1 downshift T W O THREE 2 downshift T W O THREE 3 downshift
      Why should I do that? Isn't the car's computer only downshifting when it's safe for the engine?
      >ZF
      wuts that?

    This will ruin most automatics.
    Dual clutch autos are fine, much like a manual car, I’ll just wear the clutch faster.
    Regular autos, older cars cannot blip to discounting out a lot of stress on the torque converter and clutch packs.

    I drive the same way company fleet cars, never had a transmission last more than 30k miles.

    Off that’s got you like to drive, consider a manual and learn to rev match. A perfectly rev-matched downshift causes literally nothing to the transmission, saves you brake, fuel, and you get that sweet noise.

      Ye it has the speedshift mct shit.
      Is there anything I can do to reduce the wear?

      what purpose does engine braking serve?

      Sounds sexy

      You act like your brakes are made of gold. Just lift and brake if needed.

      No, they're made of brake dust that I HAVE TO CLEAN OFF TWICE A FRICKING WEEK

      if you're going down a long steep hill it's great for saving your brakes

      Im in texas, i dont go down hills

      No. Make sure you change the fluid regularly and don't overheat the transmission.

      Yessir i follow the service schedule as prescribed. The transmission usually sits around 200°F, the car isn't warning me or anything. What do I do if it does overheat?

      Gore? On my car board?

      It's just sleeping ahah

          I drive like a chimp on cocaine, wait till you hear how often i need to replace my tires

          it's normal wear and tear, you're just using the clutch instead of the brake

          >The transmission usually sits around 200°F
          Yeah, that's pretty normal temperature.
          >What do I do if it does overheat?
          Replace (drain-fill) the fluid as soon as possible, maybe even two or three times with short intervals in-between.
          [...]
          Not everyone is a flat lander. Some of us drive in the hills or even in the mountainous terrain on a regular basis.

          Eh, he's using the clutches very shortly for the gear changes, the engine does all the work after that

          Ok so im gonna assume it's okay to keep doing it and that if i have any issues my warranty will cover it. Thanks bros

          >Ye it has the speedshift mct shit.
          Isn't it a regular planetary auto but with the wet clutch pack instead of the torque converter?

          I have no idea what that means lol. Look up the 9G Tronic

          idk but its a mercedes so it's arab slop and slower than a bike

          >slower than a bike
          It may be slower but at least I won't die as easily. I would 100% die within a week of getting a bike

      Avoid brake fade when you need constant braking, like when going down on a very long slope.

    It’s totally fine. The trans isn’t more stressed than if accelerating faster. Acceleration is acceleration and it only means a change in velocity over time.

    Engine braking itself isn’t hurting the engine at all. And you’re saving ware on the pads.

    DCT basically don’t wear the clutch unless you are crawling in traffic.
