what exactly is double clutching and how is it done?
doube clutching was mostly to downshift in older cars with out syncro's. it was a way of matching rpm so you wouldn't grind. it went as follows: in ger, clutch, in neutral, let out the clutch, revv up motor to match rpm, clutch in, up in a lower gear
Someone just watched the fast and the furious.
damn, jeff hit the fuckin head on that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the REAL double clutch in detials:
say, 3rd to 2nd gear downshift
move to neutral
move to 2nd
thats double clutching. by bliping it in neutral, it gets the synchros going at the same speed as the gears.. not the wheels or something, so less grinding occurs.
in hondas, its pretty useless. a good example is when you go into reverse, it grinds sometimes.. rev doesn't have a "synchro" as the other gears do, and its cut straight, not on an angel. double clutch into reverse, and i bet you will never grind (at a stop of course)
now that we have that cleared up, locked! before it turns into a big argument again B)
I got tired of this question, so I just wrote this up:
Separate names with a comma.
