not much of a point on a synchromesh transmission.

anything old school may require it though.

You don't have to double with a good syncro-mesh trans these days.....but
old ( perfected ) habits are hard to break.

funny, when i was at the scca runoffs last weekend everyone was either double clutching their downshifts, or at least matching the revs before engaging the clutch.

but what do they know?

It was likely rev matching, although some of the cars have transmissions that must be double clutch down shifted. The cars they use at skip barber racing school are like this.

if you double clutch your downshifts, then you are not using the synchros at all. less wear on the synchros sounds good to me. the ferrari f1 trans effectivly double clucthes downshifts.


what do they know?

Dwags.... You may be confusing your terms.


A single blip on a downshift is not the same as double-clutching.

While the Ferrari's do BLIP on the downshift.... I do not believe that it is double-clutching.


The Skip Barber Forumla cars have a non-sycromesh transmission and require
the second blip ( blip in neutral - clutch out ) for a non-grinding downshift.
