power clutching is one, you just basicly shift gears wile ur other foot is still at full troutle. so ur right foot never stops floring it, kinda hard to do if you dont have that much experience with ur car, just learn ur car more, then try it, it should knock off at leats 2 sec of ur 1/4 mile run or take the win home thumbsup

you can do a google search for a better explaination. But this is mine

Double clutch - its stupid, you dont need it.
heal toe - usually done when downshifting. to match engine speed with tranny when downshifting you need to raise the rpm to the right lvl. While braking put your car in neutral. use your heal to press on the gas to raise the rpm to the right place. Then just down shift.

heel toe should really only be necessary in auto cross, when your braking really hard for a turn and need to downshift and rev match.

Double clutching helps preserve synchro life A LOT. It's a more advanced form of rev matching (which will also help your synchro life), mainly used when downshifting in the middle of a turn. It helps maintain the car's weight transfer by smoothly engaging the lower gear, instead of rev matching or just straight shifting into that gear. Otherwise, the car may lose its balance due to the excess weight transfer, which will either slow you down, or even make you lose control.

To double clutch, first push the clutch in, then move the shifter to neutral and let the clutch out. Rev the engine up to the RPMs that it will be at in the next gear, then push the clutch in, shift into that gear, and let out the clutch smoothly.
