    A vid of my clutchwork.

    Here is the video guide to end all the myths about revmatching, heeltoe, doubleclutching and all that.

    My girlfriend helped me take this video last weekend in my car.

    video!

    First, I did a simple revmatch, which involves blipping the gas while downshifting. You'll see that I didn't clutch in all the way, which is sort of a bad habit that I have when I'm not driving hard.

    Next, I did a simple heel-toe, in the proper manner, with the ball of my foot on the brakes and my heel swiveled to stab the throttle.

    Finally, I did a heel-toe whilst doubleclutching. It involves stabbing the throttle while the clutch is out in neutral.

    Then I followed with just a quick boot to get up to speed.

    I hope that clears things up!!!

    That heel toe double clutch was crazy to watch. I don't think I could move my feet that fast!

    SHOW OFF!!!

    LoL, j/ks.

    Nice footwork, Jeffers.

    Sounds like my car. Love it! The heel-and-toe double clutching down shifting action is just like ! Seen it before in videos, but seeing it again just makes me go "Whoa" ala Keanu Reeves. I'm okay with the heel-and-toeing, but haven't really mastered the double-clutching heal-and-toe down shifting. Yikes!

    Heh, I used to double-clutch my old Mitsubishi all the time to save wear on the crummy synchros. Don't really need to do it in the Corolla.

    It's unnecessary, but I do it cuz it's fun. It's for that same reason that I own a Corolla at all.

    my dad brought me up on double de clutching in our old DC2... showing me how he used to do it on his old cars in the 60's. since i learned its just become habbit.

    its the funnest part of driving a corolla.. rev matching, heel toeing, and double de-clutching.

    Buhahaha, nice dance on the pedals Jeff. To bad the feet don't work to modulate the throttle on the launch. Nice double clutch. I don't ever do that, but I usually just rev match downshift with the heel-toe method. It's much faster.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    Nice footwork. I tried that once...my feet are so big it's like Toe-Toe instead of Heel-Toe...followed by a perfect example of a spinout... dam Lugs.

    its nice to know that my shifting is waaay to slow to be doing that, unless its going from 3th to 3rd, or 2nd to 1st.
