    True but your tires are still wider than stock right? That's at least something.

Meaning the synchros have reached a flat rate of spin and can be pulled into a gear. Truck drivers use this method all the time without using the clutch. Tri-axles and most tractor trailers do'nt have synchronizers. So some guys use the "double clutch method. Others have learned to listen to the engine and know just when to let off and shift "no clutch". Speed shifting cames from old formula 1 racing and old time drag raceing. This keeps the power up instead of having to build it up everytime you let off the gas to change gears. If your hitting your rev limiter you're takeing too long between gears. You want the rpms to only jump slightly between gears so be fast!
    Most people either do'nt know or do'nt use this method. Usually out of fear. This method wins races and you'd be surprised how much time it shaves off of ET's too. This method is why NHRA cars use scatter sheilds. Those cars crank enough rpms to scatter or spin a disengaged clutch apart. Loss of a leg or other nasty injuries were common then. Good luck and have fun!
    its just a leg... throw it in the cooler lmao

    ROFL. Yeah they can stitch it back on. It's only the gas foot. A wooden peg can push the gas too! LOL

    so people actually hold the pedal to the floor and dry shift? that's crazy, i hardly dry shift on the street let alone in a race. What the hell is double clutching? I've heard of it and i'm sure it has to due with pressing the clutch twice...

    Anyways if he is making 250hp it doesn't matter from where or where to you race him its no contest unless he has an unbelievable drag set up and weight 800lbs less

    A half decent bell housing can prevent that on most cars, and those power numbers are far beyond the conversation on this thread.

    You can always get a transmission blanket for $89.95. Cheap insurance, and you won't have to use a peg leg to push the accelerator...........

    The rev limiter won't prevent mechanical over-revving when you inadvertantly shift into a lower gear during hard acceleration.
