Giving it a blip before you release the clutch, or as you release the clutch.Stuart said:Hmmm, I don't blip, but then again I have a question, are you guys talking about having the clutch in, giving it a little blip then downshifting, or downshifting and giving it a little blip before you release the clutch so your RPMS match the road speed? If that is the case it's sorta like double clutching a car
There is no need to double clutch in a modern car EVERStuart said:Yeah, I know exactly what double clutching is, don't worry about that. I'm saying that it is like that because you're pretty much in neutral once you pull in the clutch because you're not giving power to the rear wheel, then in order to match your road speed to your RPM's you give the throttle a little "blip" and it becomes a smooth transition. I wouldn't have used the word double clutch if I didn't know how to use it unlike Vin Diesel in The Fast & The Furious (because there is no need to double clutch in a 1/4 mile race if you don't downshift).
i recommed the following. very nice. a bit technical perhaps[...] If it's a downshift, we should give the engine a little throttle right before the next gear engages whether we’re using the clutch or not to smoothly match road speed to engine speed.[...]
