Re: lingo questions

double clutching - depressing the clutch and taking the transmission out of gear.. Release clutch -- depress clutch and put transmission into next gear.

IMO - it's of no value in a car. It's necessary in the 18wheelers to get the whateverthe****technical****isinthedamntransmissions to sync. if you don't double clutch the big scary truck - you will grind gears..

Power shifting -- Almost the exact opposite from doubleclutching (i think).. It's where you shift without the clutch. Once you learn the RPM's the tranny and engine are in sync at, you can slide between gears without the need for the clutch



V6 mustangs don't come with a limited slip because they ARE NOT performance vehicles. They are base models intended for people who want all the looks with none of the performance. Fortunately, Ford did bless the V6 with some good foundation components, capable of building it into a performance car, but the people who want that are not Fords primary target customers.



Personally, I like the supercharger, although the fastes V6 is the turbo variety..




/my attempt at some sort of tangible contribution...

Re: lingo questions

Isn't power shifting when you do not let off the gas while pressing the clutch in?

Yup. And speed shifting is just shifting as quickly as possible, but still letting up off the gas a little while on the clutch.

Re: lingo questions

no.......your suppose to shift at a certain rpm or certain speed. at that exact point you can shift into gear without having to depress the clutch pedal. i've practiced it on my hyundai. i'm only good from 3rd-4th and 4th-5th gears.....I'd advice you to practice it...only if you have a spare car

Re: lingo questions

That's different than power shifting though. That is just shifting without using the syncros.
