syncromesh basically skips the step for you, some racer types think it allows better acceleration etc, But VERY much depends on the car / driver.

Most modern quick cars use paddel shift which is far quicker than double clutching.

Try it by all means, but I've heard long term damage to clutches etc from people trying it!
Currently in Tiggerz_SRi's garage:
Audi a4 v6 avant, used to have bmw 525d se estate, 2001 Toyota Previa 2.4 VVTi GLS, '98 R FORD Galaxy 2.3 Ghia X a Espace III 2.2dT RXE and a Lag I 1.8RT!
