i agree 100% with Zalight, i feel like vommiting in my mouth and swallowing it again when i see punks in mazda precidias or civics with giant hood scoops and popcan exhaust, just thinking about it makes me sick theres no replacement for displacement, so ricers can just bite me, oh and that whole drifting stuff is sweet but i was sure i invented that on the ice bridges of the cold north!

Don't kid yourself, his mother can only run with him in the stroller at 1mph, if that.

I treat the movies as a good laugh. You couldn't possibly take them seriously. The only draw back is the young kids who can't tell reality from fiction and try to play out the movie on the streets.

One particularly nasty incident was where a young exchange student was literally cut in half by one of these kids doing 90Mph + in a 30Mph zone in Christchurch a while ago when crossing the road.

NO its not because doubleclutching is rev matching your engine speed with your driveshaft speed so how is that posible while uupshifting because you will get a lesser gear ratio than the privous gear.

"First, you take your foot off the gas and kick in the clutch. You shift into neutral, AND let the clutch out. You wait perhaps 0.3 to 1.0 seconds for the engine to slow down from its high revs, depending on how fast you were revving when you started to shift and how much inertia the engine has to slow down. THEN you kick in the clutch and shift into third, and let the clutch out quickly, feeding the gas appropriately. If you have judged it right, when you let the clutch out, there isn't any JERK. And when you shove the lever into third, the gears and engine are at a synchronized speed, so there's minimum wear on the synchronizers, which are the tiny clutches that bring the clutch plate and the gears into smooth synchrony. There's also usually less wear on the clutch plates.

What's the big deal? The main point is that when you try to shift into third gear, the engine has slowed itself and the clutch plate down to the right speed—just about the same speed as the gearbox—so it saves wear on the synchronizers and the clutch. It can also save shock and strain on the whole drive-train, because the speeds are just about synchronized when you let out the clutch"

That would not be called doubleclutching. The engine and wheel speed are not soppost to match when you upshift you only want them to be the same when you downshift. The jerk that you get from upshifting is because after upshifting, you press the throttle too hard so it pulls. When you upshift, the engine will already slow down for you so what is the point of waiting? How will doing this make less wear on the clutch when you only hold down the clutch once when upshifting and your way of "upshiftin/doubleclutchin" you have to press the clutch 2 times for no fukin reason.

carEXPERT, stop trying to sound like you know what your talking about. He said double clutching is possible when upshifting. And it is. He didn't say that you should, he just said you could.
