Lubrizol’s website, DCTfacts.com, provides news and information on the advancements of dual clutch transmission technology and discusses the fluid implications. The DCTfacts.com site includes news and information from around the world, including insights from automotive and transmission manufacturers, and offers updated information on how dual clutch technology works, industry outlooks, technical trends, test drive reviews, product launches, industry regulations, and ongoing advancements. Dual clutch operates with two gear boxes and two clutches but has no clutch pedal. The transmission preselects the next gear, enabling the engine to remain engaged and providing a quick shift with no torque interruption or power loss. Benefits include lower emissions and improved fuel efficiency.
