So I just hit 800 miles on my 2013 wrx and have been reading all I can on this car. I still have a couple of questions that are still a little fuzzy to me.
1. When/is it appropriate to down shift into 1st gear? I have been told to NEVER down shift into first unless stoped. I drive though a couple of school zones on my way to work and have to ride the clutch some times in second gear in stop and go traffic that is sub 5mph. So what is the best technique in this situation?
2. I have been practicing rev matching and wasn't sure if I am suppose to give in steady gas inbetween shifts to keep the rpms where I want them or just blip the throttle and then shift?
Sorry for the newish questions but this is my first car with a manual transmission and just want to make sure I am doing it right. Thanks in advance!!!!
