It's meant to sync up the gears while shifting to make a smooth shift or some shit like that.. But you shouldn't have to with your neon.. It's with cars without some certain kind of MTX.. Can't remember what it's called..

You push the clutch in, go into neutral, release the clutch, push the clutch back in, and shift into the next gear.. This will allow something with the RPM's to even out and provide a better shift or some shit like that..

It's not needed, it's only meant for cars that don't have syncros or like neoncrazy101 said with his... shot :lol:

they get it from the fast and the furious,

tell them they are stupid and don't deserve to have a license

even if you are exremely good a double clutching it will still add .5 seconds to your 1/4 mile time

"half-clutching" or "drag shifting" on the other hand is much faster and can take about .3 seconds off of your run, it is easy to learn but very dificult to master,

when you do it right you jump up about 10-15 MPH with every shift

but its dangerous to your tranny and your ability to maintain control in a race, it often leads to a blown clutch, blown synchros, and when you do it in a FF car you get alot of torque steer

so i won't give a how-to on the open forum, but pm me and i will tell you how

edit: on second thought i dont want to answer 50 pm's to i will post directions in the how to section, but don't tell any honda guys, let them live in their own little world of double clutching

Vin Diesel just says to Paul Walker.. "Granny shifting and not double clutching like you should" and all the Honda boys live by it.. Shows their mentality.
