Lol, Thats really bad for your transmission. Once you get it down you can shift fast enough without breaking anything, And the difference between a good fast shift using the clutch and powershifting is negligible. Double clutching is for tractor trailiers. Thats when you put your car in nuetral, let the clutch out, wait for the engine to match rpms for the next gear, and push the clutch back in and put it in the next gear. Thats why they put synchronizers in transmissions, they do all that for you. I remember that line in the fast and the furious "granny shifting and not double clutching like your supposed to. who does that? haha. Its just a waste of time, But im sure it would make your synchros last a little longer.

Lol yeah and the fact that vin diesel did a burnout and a wheelie at the same time for like 2 blocks in that charger(which is physically impossible), And if those were both 10 second cars why did the race last at least 25 secs? And i wana know how that mk4 with the 18" rims would have enough traction to keep up with that supercharged hemi with the tubbed rear off the line? lol.

they put that 10 second race in slow-mo so they can actually show paul walker's prettyboy hollywood face for a longer time.

being able to le me see

slide off from launch
f-ing up
looking at the computer
pressing nos.
f-ing up again
the metal piece flying
f-ing up again lol
pressing nos again,
and thinkking that he was actually gonna win
then f-ing up again lol, (ok i'll stop)

he must be lightning quick

but do you guys think there's a powerful enough nos-shot
to let sumbody pass you by two cars at least
on the idk the last 300 ft of the race
and then be able to catch up?

and if you guys ddnt notice
while vin diesel was giving a "speech"
the guy with the spiked hair and black shirt
magically appears at two places instantly
he appeared behind vin , in one frame, then behind paul all of a sudden
(super bad editing/directing)lol

dont ask, it was for school
