I suggest you to check on the internet the term "double-clutch", you might be amazed on how much tech info there it is for racing. Hope this helps

When I downshift and toe and toe downshift, doing what you explain as double clutching, keeping car frm unsettling itself. As far as doubleclutching here, it when you cutch in take out of gear clutch out, blip throttle, clutch in put in gear, clutch out. It is for cars with no synchros, usually open wheel.

That might be needed with a 700+ car at the drags, but with the typical compact car you would just lose time doing that!

The way I was taught to drive, tat's just called downshifting. You should do that when downshifting anyway, especially on a vehicle that can get unsettled easily, like a bike!

Hum, thats a interesting definition, I had no idea drag racers did that, on the road course double clutching is something completely different. I thought all the fast drag cars had tranny's with no syncro's.

I guess it depends on the driving style. If you use to ride bikes, it's necessary , but in cars, sometimes I downshift without the sutile reving of the engine, just to slow down a bit the car with the gear and avoid excessive braking (we call it engine-braking, and is also very used in cargo trucks)).
When I (personal style) down-shift and rev a little bit the engine in the moment the clutch is in, is when I want to enter "torqued" (that's how we call it, just meaning mid to high revs in the curve in FWD) to the curve and avoid CG changes.

To be honest I didn't understand very well what you meant by double-clutch in the US, but I would really appreciate if you try to explain to me in other words.

Thanks a lot.

yep

well i have never driven a peterbuilt but have driven a lot of race cars that turn left and right, no drags. i double clutch when,say, i am underbraking from 120 plus to maybe 55, and going from 5th to 3rd. always have, always will. it has nothing to do w/drag cars. who the hell would double clutch on an upshift in a car.
