Re: Your original clutch lasted 200k miles?!...Question for you Pedro..
Hello Pedro,

Interesting how you have been able to make your clutch last.

What is the proper way to rev match? For years I've double-clutch to rev match by going into neutral to blip the throttle, then slide into a lower gear but it's not ideal in every situation like braking hard before a corner. I assume you mean heal and toe by rev-matching. I have tried to practice at it but still am unsure if I am doing it properly. Basically, is it pressing the brake and blip the throttle, and slide into a lower gear all at the same time in one motion?? Or is it you blip the throttle and brake, then slide into a lower gear in two movements? This may be overkill in thinking but I don't want to wear down my clutch. Maybe you know of a good video to show proper heal and toe shifting?? I have never had anyone actually show me. Thanks!

Dan
