That's it I'm stopping the DOUBLE CLUTCHING!!!

OK! Double Clutching is defined as "A double clutch (also called a double declutch) is a driving procedure used for vehicles with an unsynchronized manual transmission."
Also "A modern synchromesh gearbox accomplishes this synchronization automatically."

This is my vent thread. I'm sorry but unless you are a 18-wheeler truck driver or driving a car made before the 1920's, then you are a LOSER!!!!

Double clutching is sometimes confused with power shifting.

I know how you feel.

I do drive a Tractor Trailer for a living ,and sometimes I double clutch that, but it's pointless in the Focus. Most of the time I don't use the clutch. In the Tractor or the Focus.

ya, that confused a lot of morons. unfortunately that movie had some bullshit, but along with the millions of rices it attracted it did bring some domestic car guys to the sport compact area. im by no means saying it was worth it, but i may very well have been modding a camaro right now if i hadnt seen that movie before i knew how to turn a wrench.

its more clear to us 20ish year-old guys, and it did sell a lot of fart-cans to civic owners, but it had a couple plusses. (my first car was a tiburon)

not to make this a thread that it isnt...

Is power shifting pushing in the clutch rev the engine and then gear down? Or something like that cause I do notice a smoother down shift when I do that.

no, that's rev matching

powershifting is when you don't let off the gas and slam gears as to not lose engine RPM
