do you guys downshifting for engine brake to slow down the car? do you guys hear strange noise from the engine when you let the clutch go?

I downshift to 2nd; and while stopping, into 1st as well. I don't let the clutch out in 1st, though.

;)

No rev matching, and I don't have any problems (yet).

You should start teaching yourself to revmatch. you're burning away your clutch everytime you downshift by just letting up on the clutch.

i'd start rev matching. it'll save your synchros and clutch, as well as make for a much better driving experience (smoother downshifting and a lot less neck snapping of passengers)

:)

i'd also quit downshifting into first as much as possible. the first gear synchros seem to take extra punishment due to absorbing the full AWD brunt of the force.
