My 1977 MGB is a great car for learning how to heel and toe double declutch when downshifting just like the race car drivers of yesterday. A smooth heel and toe downshift is an art form and really helps on the twisty bits where balance and control are helpful

Demostraciones Punta - Tacón y Doble Embrague / Heel & Toe and Double Clutch demostrations
Recopilatorio de demostraciones de las mismas técnicas en diferentes
Vehículos de distintos años, segmentos, características, pesos,
Cada vez con un calzado diferente, simplemente para demostrar que el tener
unas Puma o unas Alpine Stars no implica ser mejor conductor.
El vídeo está realizado a modo didáctico para todas aquellas personas a
las que el Doble Embrague y el Punta - Tacón les suena a chino.
A algunos de los habituales les costará reconocerme al no ver directamente
los calcetos de competición, jejeje!
He de agradecer a Danthrax el filtrado de los sonidos. ;)
Espero que os guste y que sobre todo la gente que descubre estas técnicas
por primera vez tenga muy en cuenta la petición que realizo al principio
POR FAVOR NO INTENTE IMITARLO,
REALIZAR ESTAS TÉCNICAS REQUIERE
EXPERIENCIA, UNA MALA EJECUCIÓN
PUEDE HACERLE PERDER EL CONTROL
AOPA's Yellowbird 150/152 Refurbs
At AirVenture 2014 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, AOPA showed off its new
refurbished Cessna 150/152s for the training market. AVweb talks to AOPA's
Mark Baker about the new project.
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.
MVP Aero Light Sport Amphibian
The newly announced two-seat MVP Aero was the big news as AirVenture 2014
opened in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Although it's still in development, the
aircraft could fly in as little as 18 months and serve double duty as a
camper. In this video, AVweb takes a closer look at the proposed design.
1968 MGB Roadster Test Drive in Sonoma Wine Country
Visit http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/1968-mgb-roadster/ to see this 1968
MGB Roadster for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California.
Solid 1968 MGB Roadster for sale, just one owner until a year ago. Owned
from new by a couple in the Bay area until purchased by my client earlier
this year. The original owner worked at an MG dealership. It was his
wife's car and only used for local drives in their home town. The car
starts; runs and drives beautifully with smooth shifting, tight suspension,
excellent brakes and clean running quiet motor with plenty of oil pressure.
Truly amazing to find such an original gem.
Incredibly original and unaltered, right down to the emissions equipment on
the engine. Lovingly cared for. The only modifications are period speakers
installed in the rear bulkhead and an electric cooling fan added to the
radiator. Drives with a tightness and originality that you don't find on
restored cars. Has had one repaint of it's original primrose on a razor
straight, absolute rust-free body. The wheels still bear the factory paint
and car has a vintage Amco convertible top. Frame bag is included. Nice
chrome, trim, glass and even the original leather in beautiful condition.
Also includes both original issue black license plates.
Take a look at all the details as well as full photo gallery at the link
above and then give me a call with your best offer.
Thanks for watching this 1968 MGA test drive video - please leave a nice
big thumbs up and a Like!
