What happens in the transmission when you double clutch / Heel Toe Downshift???
Trying to do everything in one take is nerve racking, as it's nearly
impossible to do perfectly. Minor corrections: I said the clutch pedal and
throw out bearing are not wear items, I meant not high wear items, compared
to the clutch disk. Also, when I mention buying a cheap car to practice, I
mean if you own a manual transmission track car that is not your daily
driver. Finally, I didn't talk about the syncros. You can do this with
one clutch pedal action, but you make the syncros speed up the intermediate
shaft. When you double clutch, you bring the intermediate shaft up to
speed with the clutch disc, which has more capacity to do so than the
synchros. Minor point, but you will see prolonged synchro life when you
double clutch. Also, it is not the mass of the servo or engine but the
power created by electricity of gasoline that is responsible, but the mass
is responsible for the inertia.
How to double clutch downshift in classic sports cars using heel-toe technique
In this video, I demonstrate double clutch downshifting to for smooth
downshifting in classic cars. At bugeyeguy.com, we specialize in old
British sports cars and many of them have worn transmissions that can be
hard to downshift. By double clutching, smooth downshifts are easy, even
with a transmission with worn synchros. Here, I'm driving a 1963 Morris
Minor Traveler with a 5 Speed Datsun 210 transmission, a popular upgrade.
