I wanna know what double clutching is and when and how it is used. Will it make a difference when racing?

double clutching is where when u shift u put the clutch down then shift in netrual then off clutch then back on then shift into gear... its for older cars without syncros.. bc cars now have gear syncros the trans will match so gears wont grind..

oh no, the F&F movie is corrupting our youth. :lol:

On the real though. Its just a waste of time doing it in new cars, like spider said.

on the same note, is there such a thing as 'power-shifting'? i think i have been informed that it is when u don't let up on the gas when u shift. is this true? let me know! =)

i know of power shifting.. where u shift without using the clutch.. this is possible if u know the rpm where the gears match.. this is how a stock Z06 vette pulled a 3.9 sec 0-60 time.. of coarse it was a gm factory driver that knew right when to shift................and the other when u keep the gas down while shifting.. which has been proven to do nothing at all but screw up the trans

--------------------WRONG
f**k that aint dubble clutching what the hell is this.

dubble clutching is when your toward the end of the gear you diengage the clutch- without letting off the gass and engage it back . realy quickly be carefull you dont f**k up your timing n s**t. anyway after that go to the next gear. you get an extra booste if you do it rite. its a very quick process. i dont do it offten unless its a realy close one...

Double de-clutching?

My dad says it does no good on modern cars...and that it is good when you are going down through the gears...that it makes it smoother? He showed me on his M roadster one time. His car is so beautiful...makes me want to put M symbols on my civic (not).
Peace :?:

Double clutching is mainly for when you down shift. You want to match the rpm so you save you snycros..

So, you push in clutch, remove from gear, rev the engine to match RPM then clutch in, into lower gear.

This was the way it was explained to me.
