well I tried rev matching the other way and it's not too much harder. I don't see the difference though between
clutch out, down into lower gear, rev match, release clutch
clutch out, rev match, down into lower gear, release clutch
considering when you rev match the clutch isn't engaged. can anyone shed light on that ?
btw, rev matching does not help my problem. I got it into first around 5 mph, but it didn't feel very smooth
