that would be way too sick for my old butt-its bad enough when you can brace yourself against something. and why is it the old guys always try to kill me? this year 2 major 4 wheel offs with farts older than me.

racerdan Just kidding Gary, I have instructed on road courses and autocross. I drew the line at motocross.....I refused to get on behind anyone.

well

the instructor part just means you are loony enough to get in the passenger seat with people who may try to kill you!

racerdan I may not be an instructor but I have raced one thing or another since the mid 60's and I haven't double clutched since I last drove an old fire truck with bad syncros. If you shift gears and it doesn't grind, the syncros are working and you don't need to double clutch. I still can't figure out what the purpose is, other than making your shift times slower.

And Dangerous, if you double clutch while drag racing.....well, I'm not even going there.

btw

not at all fast and furious, quite the opposite. njever seen either of those pieces of crap. the closest i come is a 10 month race and instructional binge very year. log several hundreds of hours on east coast tracks. next up enduro at lime rock. i may take svt's offer up next year and instruct at the new dunnville circuit-if i do you can see what its ll about.

well

to effectively heel-toe, you also need to match trans shaft revs to engine speed-hence just dumping the clutch and holding it in and just revving will not do that. and yes originally it was done because of non-synchro gear boxes such as the hewland on my old formula ford with straight cut gears.
