double clutching

firstly, this is now a thing of the past in todays modern car, however in my old Izuzu Motor home, which was 4 tons, i used to double clutch mainly as the Synchromesh wasnt the best, it had done 400,000 ks, its still quite common in heavy vehicles, takes a wee bit to master,but once youve got the nack of it, its dead easy, clutch in,move to neutral,bip the pedal, clutch in again and at same time move into next gear, dont try it in reverse though,unless youve got a big cheque book.
