    Double Clutch?

    I've recently started double clutching. I have worn sychros on 2nd and it seems to help. Does anyone else double clutch when driving? I find it remarkably smooth.

    Not usually when driving a car with synchro : ) But yes it can help. I put new synchros in the wife's car last year but I see that 2nd is still a bit crunchy. Occasionally double-clutch if it's cold but to actually get the gears turning again rather than slowing them

    I also tried replacing my fluid with motul gear 300, due to crunching going into 3rd. it made no difference, and a few months later it started getting worse and also happening in other gears. a rebuild is definitely in my future. I tried double clutching before but couldn't get it to work really well, maybe I need more practice with that but I generally just shift really slowly with a light touch it usually avoids the crunch

    I don't double clutch.
    Instead, as you let off the gas slide the stick out of gear. At the same time, start pushing in the clutch and grab the next gear. Takes A little practice, but you can get real smooth and quick. Plus its a lot less motion while still allowing the input shaft to change speed, thus easier on the synchros.

    But if your timing is off when removing it from gear it can wear on your gears

    That's why practice is necessary under no/light load from the engine until familiarity is achieved😉.

    I saw this kind of shifting by a few 1/4 mile drivers. Gear shifts are also way faster this way, but hell, if your timing is off....
