I agree with focus here! The correct term for double clutching is only used in a vehicle like an 18 Wheeler, or something else that has unsync'd gears. It would only slow you down on most vehicles.focus said:Not another one. [rolleyes] Comepletely ignore that phrase anywhere you come across it.
I don't think ram it home is really the right term. When I floated my Freightliner, it was actually smoother then when I double clutched.Rsdnt-Evle said:Hehe, I groaned and squirmed in my seat when Vin blurted that out. My wife looked at me puzzled, and I tried to explain the diff between a modern day stick-shift and a Peterbuilt. For those that don't know any better, you can really mess them up when you tell them that big trucks, like 18-wheelers, don't even use the clutch after 2nd or 3rd gear, they just rev-match and ram it home. 
Like you said, the wannabe's have mixed up double-clutching with heel-toe... thanks to those that think F&F is a movie "made by street racers, for street racers!" 
Most intelligent thing ever posted on this board. Also, you double clutch a 18 wheeler, I never use clutch unless I come to a dead stop, or atek off from a dead stopNot another one. Comepletely ignore that phrase anywhere you come across it.
I believe they call this Speed Shifting.HONDAHATER said:I can shift my car into 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th with no clutch at all...
Yeah, bikes or sequential transmissions are easy. I still speed shift my street bike for upshifting, especially when trying to keep the front wheel in the air while shifting. Don't like doing it for downshifting though!Jonny Bolt said:I used to speed shift my RM125 2 stroke.
