>>14282834 Blip the throttle. Say in 4th gear going 40mph your rpms sit at 2k than in neutral you rev it to 2k and you shift into 4th. Repeat for the rest of the gears. Congrats you now know how to rev match
>>14282876 >>14282887 You guys are fucking retarded, what im saying is if in [ insert gear here] your RPMs sit at [ insert RPM here] at [ insert MPH here] that means if you ever want to shift into a certain gear going a certain speed you must match the Speed with the corresponding gear and the corresponding RPM. I.g. if im cruising down the highway in 6th gear, going 40mph, and i want to shift into fourth. I know that in 4th gear going 40mph my RPMs sit at 2.5k so i must shift to neutral (from 5th) and rev my car to 2.5k RPM and put it into 4th gear. Get it now?
>>14282901 Why would you do that? No. You push in clutch (putting you into neutral) then with the clutch pressed down you blip the throttle while simultaneously downshifting and then release the clutch. It should be one smooth motion.
>>14282934 I'm convinced that it's like 5% of the board that is retarded and starts threads like this. Then other retards come and try and explain to them how to drive, but fail because text alone is really shitty for explaining concepts like the intricacy of driving manual.
>>14282990 >>14283008 The fuck you are you idiots even saying? If you're going 60, push the clutch in, going into first gear will fuck your shit up. Just because you put the clutch in doesn't mean you can switch switch into any gear as if the car is in neutral.
>>14282994 Well it's a good thing this is an image board, and we can post links to videos to better explain the text. Too bad nobody does that except maybe >>14282850 this guy. Didn't bother to open the video so no idea if it's good or not
>>14282887 You have to blip the gas to match whatever revs you're at in that gear in that speed, it takes awhile to get it right and its different for each car, so no one will be able to tell you it exactly. Some cars have it in the owners manual(mine didn't) or you might be able to find it online, but the best way is to remember what speeds your att what rpm your at in what gear.
>>14282887 Do what takumi does. this is what I do when I'm on canyons.

I rev match to get into 1st, which has bad synchros in my car.
1) clutch on 2) go to neutral 3) clutch off 4) make the rpm's go to what they will be in the gear you want to be in. Do this by either pushing the throttle or letting off the throttle, depending on your situation and shift up/down decision. 5) clutch on again 6) shift :D 7) clutch off again
It takes more to explain it then to just practice until you can.
>>14282934 this is /o/, people here probably play forza horizon 2 with their 'buddies' and think they're pro drivers
my father taught me how to drive manual when i was 6 or 7 years old and it's stuck with me ever since. I drove my parents cars a few times in my teens and he was surprised how well I could rev match by instinct without even being instructed to do so.
I guess playing racing games all my life helped too.
These suggest never letting off the clutch while in neutral. If you do this, the synchros of the transmission will deteriorate faster than they should because they are never brought up to speed. Without letting off the clutch, the clutch is going the right speed but the driveshaft gear speed still doesn't match the clutch driven gear speed. For example, using these bad approaches, you will not be able to shift into a gear if the rpm difference is greater than the synchro can handle, i.e. going 5th @ 24krpm -> 2nd @ 6k rpm will end in the shift knob not moving into 2nd. Of course you would never do this, but it's an experiment that proves my point.
>>14286684 >if I call it the proper way to do something then I don't have to defend my stupid bullshit It's "the proper way" if you're driving a truck from the 60s, double clutching on any car with synchros is redundant
>>14286718 Yes, let synchros do everything for you. Why are you rev matching in the first place if the synchros are there to help you? Rev matching without double clutching doesn't help you shift in any way.

>Random Shitbox A goes 5000 RPMs at 50mph which happens to be the start of its power band >Entering corner in 4th at 80mph and brake down to 50mph, now I'm out of the powerband which is bad >Shifting directly down to 3rd forces the engine to catch up making an ugly shift >Instead depress clutch, tap gas to get the engine to rev to 5000RPMs then release clutch as usual >There should be no momentum change, no weight transfers, we are now happy and not leaving the road
>>14289713 I haven't driven a manuel since I wrecked the '87 poonstang, but you drop the fucking clutch at half throttle, modulate until the tires hook, and then power shift till the engine explodes... or you hit a light pole.
Just don't over rev it. It not as complicated as it sounds OP, i recommend practicing going from 4th to 3th gear (assuming your car has 5 or 6 six gears.) since that is the easiest one, downshifting from 3th to 2nd is the best feeling but it takes a little more practice to get smoothly. Don't be scared of actually trying it out, if you do one wrong its not gonna break anything. Just don't practice on normal traffic though.
This thread is still being bumped with terrible advice!?
You can stick your left foot out of the frikin window and still shift, so long as you know where the engine speed matches the vehicle speed for whatever gear.
You blip the throttle to make the drivetrain 'fluid' enough to glide into neutral, and then you can slide into whatever next gear if you know the engine speed that you need to be at.
But /o/ will have trouble with grinding gears and synchros since 90% of the unintentional shitposter don't talk about matching the engine speed to where it would be when you let off of the clutch while in gear.
Okay, dipshits, it's time for manuel transmicion 101: Double clutching puts the least strain on both the clutch and the synchros, but it is completely pointless unless your synchros are already fucked. Rev matching reduces wear ONLY on the clutch, and makes for smoother downshifts. When you downshift, you first disconnect the transmission from the engine by disengaging the clutch, then you shift into neutral. At this point, with the clutch still disengaged, the input shaft of the transmission is free-wheeling; there is no connection to the engine and no gears are engaged. In a double-clutch shift, you re-engage the clutch, which links the engine to the input shaft. A blip to the throttle spins the input shaft up (ideally) to the same speed as the gear you are selecting, allowing you to push the clutch in again and select said gear. If done correctly, this completely bypasses use of the synchronizers. This is how you shift an unsynchronized transmission. In a normal shift, even if you rev match, the free-wheeling input shaft is spun up to the speed of the gear you are shifting into by using the synchronizers so that the gears can mesh. The inertia of a free-wheeling input shaft is small, it takes very little power and thus puts very little stress on the synchronizers to do this unless you are skipping gears or doing something stupid. In contrast, the amount of power needed to spin up the entire engine if you do not rev match is substantially greater, thus the car jerks and slows down as forward momentum is converted into spinning up the engine, meanwhile stressing the clutch as it has to transfer this energy by way of friction.
tl;dr don't bother double-clutching if you don't need to. If you DO need to double-clutch, you will literally not be able to shift otherwise.
