After reading the tranny thread its got me scared about the wrx i just picked up this weekend, so in order to keep my tranny in the best possible shape i wanted to ask how you guys go about rev matching. Ive got an idea of what it is and i think in the few days i have owned the wrx i have learned how to drive it relatively well. when going to shift from gear to gear this is what i do
1. push in clutch and let off gas simultaneously
2. put into next gear, ie first to second, second to third and so on
3. release clutch and press gas in a proportion that the shift isnt felt. What I mean is, when im done shifting gears if you are riding in the car you cant feel that i ever shifted.
Would this be the way to go about things, im sure that just shifting fast and dumping the clutch would create a shock in the car hence grenading the weak tranny.
Thanks in advance for the opinions
