ok, someone confirm this for me. i just wanna do this the right way

when i'm driving hard/racing, this is the steps i take to shift gears.
1. gas off
2. quickly clutch pedal in
3. shift up quickly
4. clutch pedal off (drop the clutch)
5. quickly gas up

is this correct? if not , correct me please. if you have anything to add/modify, let me know!!

sounds ok to me, that's how I do it.
although, steps 1-2 and 4-5 should be performed almost simultaneously.

I heard of some people putting a little of leverage on the gas pedal during shifts. I don't do it myself but what you're doing during races.. that's basically what i do.

Yah, keeps your revs up during shifts (not to mention boost too if ur turbo'd
. But definitely more wear on the clutch...

What's the point? Won't the synchros have to slow the layshaft (I think that's the part) back down anyway?

What are the minimum rpms to stay in VTEC when shifting?

7500 does it for me.

Hm...7500...I don't know about Preludes overseas..but i've been hearing that the Tach is off by a few 100 rpms..I usually shift at 8000 on my ride. Why dont you try 8000? hahahahaha..

Have you ever tried shifting gears without clutch and not letting go of the gas?????

with practice, you can master this and it would be so sweet....its like auto but its manual.......you wont lose much power during shifts...

hehehe nasty dude. i guess thats what they call "power shifting". however i indended this post to discuss "proper" ways of shifting minimising clutch wear... so power shifting would defeat the purpose of this exercise.
