Why are you double clutching a synchronized tranny?

If your realy want to learn to double clutch, do what I do: Long Haul Trucking. You'll get all the practice you can stand, and then some, in alot worse places than Indiana. Try Manhatten, Atlanta, or Dallas. You'll be begging for Indiana traffic.

Not knocking you sloop, but the Indiana traffic I hit was in Chicago. I just didn't specify WHERE I got stuck. Second even w/ synchros it is difficult to get into first gear above 10 mph. Well when I see an opening in the lane i NEED to get into I can't wait for 2nd gear to wind out a lil bit to get power, nah. I need first! So therefore I double clutch. Besides, it's something entertaining to do! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I have a question... as far as I'm aware double clutching is only for down shifting right? Please correct me if I'm wrong. Not to chage the subject since this is still about double clutching but I got The Fast and the Furious on DVD a couple of days ago and I had to go to the scene right after the 4 way race at the begining. Vin Diesl is giving his "Ask any racer" speach and he tells Paul Walker why he lost. He said "Granny shiftin, and not double clutching like you should." Since when do you double clutch for a 0-100+ race in a straight line. If this movie is right (God I hope not) then I must be missing something.

I haven't seen F&F yet. Everyone I know has, I just can't seem to get my little white ass in the theatre. Anyhoo, yeah, that is an odd statement about the double-clutching. I'm not sure what he meant either.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Most newer transmissions have the nifty little sychros in 'em. So we don't have to double-clutch, so yes it is only for downshifting. As I said earlier, the only time I have used it so far is to get into first gear in traffic jams. Plan on using it once I start Autocrossing. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I believe the reason what's his face was talking about granny clutching is alot of race trannies do NOT have the sychros, therefore you need to double clutch and rev match.

im confused.. why double clutch a tranny with sycro's(unless ur going down into first)? I can see a lil blurp of the throttle to match the rpm's the engine is going to be at when u let the clutch go.. maybe I am still in the dark.

There is no point. I only use it when going to first <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

There actually is a point other than going into first... when autocrossing or rally racing, it can be a useful technique when wheeling around corners like a madman. Even with synchros, there is tons of lag in a downshift. You often break at hairpin turns and the ability to manage all three pedals at once often comes in handy. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

IMO there is no point in considering anything from TF&TF, that movie was full of rice and nonsense (though, it was interesting to watch and have fun). Regards double clutching, I beleive it's not necessary with synchronized trannys (unless you're practicing). But if you want to race and you don't double clutch correctly, you could even loose time.

New kid, read the rest of the posts up top, if you still dunno e-mail me and i'll explain. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Okie..."The reason for double-clutching is to help evenly match the rpm's of the gear you are selecting with that of the engine to allow a smoother meshing of the gears"~Ross Bently.

What this means is that when you clutch in to release the gear you're on,the gearbox is still freewheeling because of the internal component's inertia.When you double clutch,the compression effect of the engine slows the gearbox components down when the clutch engages after you release the gear. and lets the syncros take up the drive with less stress.

It also means a gearbox that will not cost you as much in repairs...hehehe
