Double clutching?

How bad is double clutching? I mean the double clutching where you hold in the clutch give it some good revvs then let it out slow. It gives you a better launch but how bad is it for a stock clutch? I imagine it'd be pure torture but my friend said its fine if you only do it in 1st gear. Anybody mind clearing this up? Is it as bad as peer shifting?

If you are holding the clutch in and revving it from a stop and letting go, that is not double clutching. That is slipping the clutch. And if you rev it up high and let it out slowly you are going to kill your clutch in a few hundred miles. Even in 1st or any gear, you don't want to rev it up and let it out slowly. When you hear of people slipping the clutch, its more of a 3500rpm, and let it out slower than just letting go of it, but you still let it go out faster than you would just cruising around.

Double clutching is when you start like normal and then when you shift gears you clutch in, shift to neutral, clutch out and blip the throttle, clutch in and shift to the next gear. Its meant for when cars did not have synchros and you had to manually get them synchronized. NOT needed on any modern manual transmission unless the synchros are ****.

Double clutching?

Double clutching could actually be considered "good" for the transmission buy would have little impact on the clutch.

I like to double clutch when I'm downshifting to a low gear, ie 2nd gear at 45 mph.

The idea is similar to rev matching, but because the clutch is out in neutral when you rev, you speed up the rest of the driveline. It just makes things a little smoother on downshifts. It's never required and has very little use in today's transmissions-like soccer said.

There's really nothing fancy you can do with a manual to make it faster. Clutch in, choose gear, clutch out. When I'm launching my car I rev it to 3000-3500 and then let out the clutch completely within 2 seconds.
