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
Truck Driver Skills: How to Double Clutch in a Big Rig
Dave gives some guidelines and tips for new drivers and drivers in
training, for clutching in a big rig.
Dave reviews some of the points regarding controversy over whether the
clutch should be utilized when shifting.
Mechanics say that the clutch is absolutely necessary when shifting as the
use of the clutch makes it easier on the transmission. There are varying
opinions on clutch use.
No doubt, overuse of the clutch will burn out a clutch prematurely and it
is quite expensive to replace one.
Some tips, tricks and information which may be helpful, especially to new

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,

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.

Work on my MGB by Classic Car Services, MGOC recommended
If you view this video on fullscreen you might appreciate the workmanship
I purchased my MGB in 1999. Late 2007 I decided to give it a facelift so
chose Classic Car Services, Ledian Farm Industrial Estate, Leeds, Maidstone
from my MG Owners Club recommended directory. There were several times I
had to return to the garage because of things I was unhappy with. The
bonnet did not fit as good as the old one. The overdrive did not work after
a new wiring loom was fitted, it was suggested that I had been driving
around since 1999 with overdrive on, it transpired that they had not
connected it correctly. I later found the windscreen heating ducting was
I thought the general finish on the car was very poor and was better before
I took the car to Classic Car Services. I had the opportunity to let MG
Owners Club know of my feelings on an online questionnaire they ask members
to complete annually.
In January 2010 the car, which is garaged had a flurry of snow on the boot
lid for 2 days, when this melted it left the surface pock marked. I
contacted MGOC to ask for advice, they suggested I contact the garage. When
I contacted Classic Car Services in January they remembered me and asked me
to take the car to them for inspection which I did. I was told it was a
paint defect and they would respray the boot after sanding back in February
or March (Free of charge). By 22nd of March I had not heard from them so
gave them a call, they couldn't remember telling me they could repair the
paint in February / March but are in the middle of a job right now and
would repair the paint in April. By this time the paint had flattened but
still left imperfections on the boot lid which I told them about. It is now
June 2010 and I have heard nothing from Classic Car Services so decided to
replace parts on my car which were given to me as Christmas presents. I am
still finding things wrong with my MGB which were not there before using
this MG Owners Club recommended dealer.
OUT AND ABOUT IN THE MGB
Roy Nicol takes his MGB out for a spin as he starts to do some touring
around some pretty locations in England . Quite a nice sounding engine !
Roy hopes to eventually make a small video series on all aspects of
motoring as he has collected many accessible motoring films over the last
few years and needless to say the films centre around driving his beloved

Heel-toe shifting technique
My attempt at demonstrating heel-toe downshifting technique. This is a
single-clutch technique. Double-clutching can also be useful. Some day
I'll get around to making a video demonstrating that. :)
