It is what you do when you "heel-toe" shift. When you go from say 3rd gear to 2nd gear, you may be at 3000rpm in 3rd, but in 2nd you would be at 4500rpm, it will blip, or briefly rev the motor to about 5000rpm while the clutch is dis-engaged, and it will spin down to 4500 as it re-engages the clutch.
I'm not sure what the benefits are on modern full synchro transmissions, but it was essential on older transmissions, especially when shifting quickly. I think its mainly for racing situations, where you are at or near the performance capabilities, and maintaining traction under braking. This prevents sudden grabs and instability.
... plus it sounds cool.
Although I should note that heel-toeing also involves using the brake at the same time... Three pedals, two feet, and a lot of 'fun' to master.
I have a 2017 Quattroporte my battery is dead is there anyway to get into the truck, if not when I left the hood I’m only seeing the positive terminal to jump the battery. Where is the negative terminal?
I was reading an article about a German tuner that extracted 14 HP out of the Ferrari V8 engine simply by adding a fuel cooling system.
What would the benefits be of fitting such a system combined to the DBW and ECU chip that FD is providing? If it delivered what it promises, combined to FD's...
Or can any anti-freeze from your local autocare store work? my CC's coolant level is at minimum and the color is red.
manual and car say to use AGIP, but I welcome those who have a lot more expertise than I do, which is most all of you! :)
