Primarily used in cars with an unsynchronized manual transmission, such as specialty vehicles and commercial trucks, double-clutching is a method of gear shifting which promotes a smoother transition and causes less wear and tear. However, modern car designs have eliminated the need to double-clutch thanks to the presence of a synchronized manual transmission. The big question that comes to mind is “Why even bother with double clutching in the first place?” to which the answer is “it is just an incredibly cool skill to master!”
Besides that, as discussed earlier, double-clutching helps deliver an overall smoother ride if you have a bad gearbox, extending the vehicle’s transmission life, and is especially useful if you are into road racing. Besides, as an all-round gear head or a car enthusiast, it is important you thoroughly know your way around the clutch. So, let’s get down to it, the ancient art of double-clutching!
